Since Busted, Where Has Charlie Simpson Been?


Charlie Simpson Fightstar Busted McBusted

McBusted - the pop supergroup combination of boybands McFly and Busted - have been selling out arenas all over the world since their inception back in November 2013. However, along with the announcement of McBusted's birth, it was obvious that the group would be missing a key component: former Busted member Charlie Simpson. He had his reasons for not taking part in the reunion, but what's the popstar turned rocker been up to as of late?

It's no secret - Simpson was the reason behind Busted's demise so many years ago, but his departure led to taking his music career to new heights. He then became the frontman of alternative rock band Fightstar, and they quickly became a force in the genre, as well as charts in the UK. Eventually, his horizons expanded even further: Simpson began posting solo demos on his MySpace page, and it ended up leading to his first solo album, Young Pilgrim, in 2011. Young Pilgrim was a landmark in Simpson's career for sure, and it allowed the songwriter to delve into a deeper aspect of his music - trading screams and electric guitars for acoustics and more softer songs. Young Pilgrim peaked at number six on the UK album charts, but he also found some success in America as well. In the summer of 2013, Simpson traveled across the U.S. on the Vans Warped Tour, playing an acoustic set at a number of dates to a very well received crowd. In a way, you might even say that Simpson found more success in the States than he ever did in Busted.

Charlie Simpson Says He Didn't See Busted Bandmates For Seven Years


Charlie Simpson Matt Willis James Bourne McBusted Tom Fletcher

Charlie Simpson has finally opened up on a few issues that have been plaguing him for years - namely, his relationship with his former Busted bandmates Matt Willis and James Bourne, who have since formed supergroup McBusted. Speaking this morning on ITV's Lorraine, the now solo singer and guitarist was happy to chat about his life lately.

On having recently re-discovered his friendship with Bourne and Willis, Simpson said. "I hadn't seen them for a long time, six or seven years, and it's been really nice. Almost rebuilding our relationship so I'm pleased - everyone is in a good place, everyone is enjoying doing what they're doing and it's all good."

However, Charlie made sure to point out that his 2005 departure, subsequent folding of the band, and seven years of not seeing Matt and James wasn't due to hard feelings between the group members. "There was never any animosity between me, Matt and James. They're doing the supergroup now and I'm really happy for them," he revealed.

Charlie Simpson Breaks Coolest Record Ever Playing World's Coldest Gig


Charlie Simpson Fightstar

Charlie Simpson has broken the Guinness World Record for playing the coldest ever gig at Oymyakon in Siberia.

The 'Fightstar' singer played the Jagermeister Ice Cold Gig in temperatures of minus 30 degrees centigrade on the trip to what is, suffice to say, the coldest place on the planet that is inhabited by humans. His set with songs from his debut solo album lasted for 15 minutes (which is longer than you would really choose to be outside in this kind of climate) with 30 second breaks between each song to warm the ends of his fingers which were exposed so that he could play his guitar. 'It was unbearably cold, and playing guitar with gloves on wasn't an option', he told the Daily Star. 'We had to pack hand-warmers into my sleeves to stop frostbite.' The town has no electricity or running water and the air is so cold that boiling water can be solidified in a matter of seconds.

Despite the dangerously low temperatures for an Englishman barely used to minus 3 degree British winters, he described the journey as 'the trip of a lifetime' as well as 'the most painful experience of my life'. He even ignored doctors who recommended giving the trip a miss as it could've very possibly damaged his health in some way.

Not many musicians have managed to reinvent themselves as successfully as Charlie Simpson; once a member of one of the UK's biggest manufactured pop groups, he turned his back on that side of the industry and created a respectable reputation with the band Fightstar. Having recorded and released three well received albums, in 2010 the band felt it was time to take a break. In the period following Charlie recorded his debut solo album 'Young Pilgrim' with producer/engineer Danton Supple.
