Former BUSTED star Charlie Simpson is on the verge of signing a $1.8
million (GBP947,369) with his new band FIGHTSTAR - only days after leaving the
Leading record label SANCTUARY are favourites to sign Fightstar on a
three-album deal which will give the 19-year-old the creative freedom he left
Busted to secure.
But Busted's label UNIVERSAL are also desperate to hold on to one of their

The CRASHED THE WEDDING trio held a press conference in London on Friday
(14JAN05) to confirm they're officially disbanding.
