Gavin Rossdale is “100 per cent” sure he should’ve had tons of top 10 hits in the UK.
The Bush singer – who is currently on a world tour with his group after they reunited following their split in 2002 – has achieved the feat in the US but insists he is not “bitter” about missing out on the achievement in the UK.
He exclusively told BANG Showbiz: “I’m not in the school of bitter musicians. The best form of attack for a musician is to write great songs. I haven’t had 16 top 10 hits in England that I could’ve had, I’m 100 per cent could’ve had them. But it’s a different time now.”
Despite the 46-year-old rocker wanting similar success in his homeland compared to what he has achieved Stateside, he is not keen to set any targets for the ‘Swallowed’ band because it would lead to “way too much pressure”.
Gavin – who is married to pop superstar Gwen Stefani – added: “It would be ridiculous to set ourselves goals. It’s too much pressure, way too much pressure. The comeback has already been way different to what I expected.”
