Ex-Busted frontman Charlie Simpson is pleased with the reception his new group Fightstar is receiving - because he thought people wouldn't accept him in a hard rock band.

The British star quit boyband Busted last month (JAN05) to focus on Fightstar star and is amazed audiences are giving him a chance as he tours the UK.

Simpson says, "I walk on the stage and people think, 'What's all this about?'

"By the end they say, 'I came wanting to not like it, but I did.'"
