Über Gavin Rossdale
Former singer and frontman for the hugely successful British grunge band Bush, Gavin Rossdale also led the one-off project Institute before going solo with Wanderlust in 2008. Rossdale grew up in London and after graduation bounced around, making a short foray into modeling and then launching a band called Midnight. He moved to L.A. for some time and worked as a production assistant on music videos. After returning to London in 1992, he started up Future Primitive, who later changed their name to Bush in 1994 and became mega-legga stars thanks to the massive success of their debut, Sixteen Stone. For the remainder of the 1990s, Rossdale enjoyed A-list star status, with his scruffy vocals and elegant bachelor good looks making him something of a sex symbol for the grunge era. In 2002, he married Gwen Stefani, another major icon of '90s culture thanks to her striking blond hair, belly-button piercing and, of course, the success of her ska punk band No Doubt.
