Gavin Rossdale Talks the 20th Anniversary of Bush's 'Sixteen Stone'

"I keep going backwards and forwards of how much I want to make a fuss of it," the frontman says of his band's landmark debut

Bush only dropped their sixth studio album Man on the Run in October, but December 6 marks the 20th anniversary of the celebrated English band's debut LP Sixteen Stone. Frontman Gavin Rossdale stopped by Fuse HQ to reminisce on the record's landmark birthday.

"The 20-year anniversary of Sixteen Stone is pretty staggering to me," says the singer. "I look back at that record, and I'm so grateful for it. It set me up, and it put me on the map of making music."

Grateful as he may be, Rossdale says he isn't sure if Bush will celebrate with a live shows to perform the album in its entirety a la Nas and the 20th anniversary of Illmatic.

"We got some good things planned, a nice box set, we've got different versions of the album, but I'm not sure we'll do that thing where we play the whole record," he adds. "I don't know how I feel about it. My relationship with that concept is strained...I keep going backwards and forwards of how much I want to make a fuss of it."
