Gavin Rossdale performing at The Bamboozle, May 2nd Wonka stage 4.40-5.25

blog reviews-
The Best and Worst of Bamboozle '09
2. Gavin Rossdale

When Gavin Rossdale was about to begin his set, my loyal concertgoing posse and I decided that we'd check out a few songs before heading over to see joke-rapper Mickey Avalon do his thing. But then a thought crossed our minds: what if he played old-school Bush songs? We quickly dismissed the thought, assuming that Gavin would stick to his newer solo material.

But when he strutted on stage, immediately launching into the opening chords of Bush's classic anthem "Machinehead," we almost lost it. I'd seen the original Bush line-up perform in 1996 in support of Sixteen Stone, undoubtedly one of the best alternative albums of all time, but after the group disbanded in the early 2000's I figured I'd never again have the chance to see their classic songs played live.

And Gavin didn't stop with "Machinehead." Although he mixed in some of his solo songs, Gavin proceeded to power through "Everything Zen," "Chemicals Between Us" and "The People That We Love" before closing with crowd-favorite "Comedown." And although it was difficult at times to see Gavin amidst all of the fawning girls snapping photos with their camera phones, I left his set energized and with a firm reminder that Gavin Rossdale is a true legend and one of the greatest rock frontmen of all time. The pristine quality of his vocals certainly gave the rest of the weekend's whiny emo bands something to live up to.

Gavin Rossdale, former lead singer of Bush, was one of the best performers of the day. I expected to only hear his solo material, but Rossdale fulfilled my wish and played two popular Bush songs. His performance was dead on and was definitely the highlight of my day.
