Bush: A slang term for the uninhabited wilderness of Alaska. This is something of a paradox because the bush is mostly covered with lots of very large trees and contains very little actual bush. Go figure.

What you will find in the bush is alot of trees, some very large mountains including Denali. You will also find bears, moose, and caribou. Scattered throughout the bush you will also find alot of abandoned mines and mining towns. A few of these small towns still have a small permanent population, of weirdo hermits.

Bush is a pop/rock band, highly mainstream. Bush is: Gavin Rossdale (vocals/guitar), Nigel Pulsford (guitar), Dave Parsons (bass), and Robin Goodridge (drums). They came together in England and produced their first album, Sixteen Stone in 1994. Two years later, Razorblade Suitcase was released and in 1999, The Science of Things was released. Most people who were fans of the band two years ago have seriously reconsidered their taste in music and moved away from the band and their experiments with synthesizers. Many people think that Razorblade Suitcase was a blatant ripoff of Nirvana's In Utero. Many people like Bush only because they think Gavin Rossdale is a "dreamboat". I liked them because I secretly lusted after Nigel Pulsford's Fender Stratocaster. Bah! Forget Swallowed... listen to that guitar solo in Comedown and tell me you don't think it's a crime for that guitar to be in his hands. He only knows 3 different chords! That should be considered child abuse. Now let's go outside and play frisbee with The Science of Things CD.

In meteorology, a bush is the debris cloud formed at the base of a funnel cloud.

"Because we're free from any constraints. At the end of the day, the best thing that we can do is just be fucking great." - Gavin Rossdale

Bush are: Robin Goodridge: Drums Dave Parsons: Bass Gavin Rossdale: Guitar, Vocals Nigel Pulsford: Guitar Winston: dog

When the members of Bush came together in 1992 they had grown sick of the music scene in Britain at the time. They had been weaned on punk and bands such as The Pixies and Bob Marley. Rossdale had already fronted various bands and released singles with bands such as Midnight, Parsons had been working with glam act Transvision Vamp, Goodbridge was doing session work and recording with The Beautiful People and Pulsford had been gigging as part of King's Blank.

The name of the band comes from the area where they started writing - Shepard's Bush. They have always been supported by Gavin's dog - Winston, a mass of fur with a cold, wet nose. Winston can been seen on the inside sleeve of Sixteen Stone.

Bush were one of the first British bands to make it big in America after the Nirvana / grunge era caved in on itself. They used the same methods to write songs that were clearly inspired by the same elements that had spawned the grunge music before it. With crashing guitars and well written lyrics, Bush have always remained slightly apart from the majority of British bands.

They have released five albums (Deconstructed is a remix album) and have had chart successes from all of the studio albums, with Machinehead, Comedown and Swallowed being the best known.

Gavin has had a stormy relationship with the singer of No Doubt - Gwen Stefani, although at the time of writing they are together and happy. CloudStrife reminds me that the couple were married recently.
