charlie, give up and come back to busted!

Former Busted member Charlie Simpson left the band to concentrate on his new rock outfit Fightstar; however his new record label want more of the hard selling pop. Simpson, thinking he was better then Busted, wants to create real music, so was understandably upset when Island Records informed him that they wanted a pop sound on his album. The request caused him to rip up his contract with the label and he is now thinking about leaving the UK for the emo shores of the US. According to ContactMusic he said: “Earlier this week we decided to tear up the contract. “They wanted a pop album and we didn’t. I’ve put so much into this band I don’t want to start compromising now. “We’re thinking about going to America. The market for our stuff is much bigger over there.” Give him a couple of years and he will be singing ‘Air Hostess’ and other classics again…
