Gavin Rossdale Defends 'Sixteen Stone' Lyrics


Gavin Rossdale, the lead singer and rhythm guitarist of Bush, defended the lyrics of the band's debut LP, 1994's Sixteen Stone, against criticism that they are 'too fragmented.'

In an interview with The Smoky Mountain News ahead of the album's 25th anniversary, the band's frontman explained how the album has stood the test of time.

"People sometimes talk about lyrics being too fragmented. And the weird thing is that I never liked to be that specific in a certain way, and one of the reasons was I always liked the lifespan of a song and to not have it nailed down to a time and a place gives it the ability to have its own journey," he said. "And the weird thing about those songs is that I can sing any single one of them — and I often do sing those at night — and the lyrics are completely present day, because I'm singing them present day," Rossdale added.

Bush released three albums after regrouping in 2010 ending an 8 year break.
