Wednesday, April 11: Tig’s Rock Birthdays
Happy Birthday today (April 11) to original Bush guitarist Nigel Pulsford. He’s 57.
Nigel Pulsford met Gavin Rossdale at a club in London back in 1992, and formed Bush with bassist Dave Parsons and drummer Robin Goodridge. The band’s debut album Sixteen Stone was a huge success with singles ‘Come Down’ and ‘Glycerine’ hitting number 1 on the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart. Other singles fron the album included “Everything Zen”, “Little Things”, and “Machine Head”. A remastered version of the album was released in 2014 to mark it’s 20th anniversary.
I've been a Bush fan since the first album and caught them live once in New York in the late 1990's. A great band that continues to rock today (only without Nigel on guitar). A new Bush album called Black and White Rainbows was released last year.
