Englishman Gavin Rossdale has gained fame for his unique voice, golden guitar fingers, captivating performances. The lead vocalist of the famed band Bush and the short-lived Institute is a singer-songwriter, rhythm guitarist and an actor.
He learned how to play the bass guitar from his sister’s boyfriend in his early teenage years but he later substituted this with the rhythm guitar. He formed a band, Midnight when he was 17 but after a few singles, he abandoned this project to work several odd jobs in Los Angeles in 1991. He formed Future Primitive when he moved back to UK in 1992 and this later became Bush.
Gavin propelled Bush to international stardom with their debut album Sixteen Stone (1994) as well as their other 4 albums. Although they did not record any appreciable success in the UK, he still received the Ivor Novello International Achievement Award. He has also had roles in the films Constantine (2005), How to Rob a Bank (2008) and The Bling Room (2013).
Even for a man his age, Gavin still sports an impeccable physique and form and his fitness is still top notch. For a long time since he came onto the music scene, he had always had his hair permed and slicked back to give him a rich Hispanic businessman look. He even had his hair in a bun in the film, Burn Notice in 2007. No one can remember seeing him with facial hair too; he always keeps a clean shave.
He has not had roles that required him to completely change his look or form yet but for now, we enjoy the streak of tan and blonde in his hair.
