Gavin Rossdale – Letting The Cables Sleep (Acoustic)
Gavin Rossdale is back in the game.
There’s been a whole lot changed in his life since his Institute days, and that reflects a lot on his new album, Wanderlust. It’s a lot more personal, a lot more mellow; in other words, very much the laid back solo album everyone was expecting three years ago instead of his new rock band.
The new Rossdale is now a father (though in the Institute era he did find out that he is the biological father of 19-year-old British model, Daisy Lowe), and a family man, and I can personally tell you that living that life changes the very way you think about everything. And though I was hoping against hope that 2008 would bring with it a Bush reunion, Wanderlust is an acceptable alternative; both introspective and optimistic, its every note plays well upon the ear.
Recently, Rossdale and his backing band shot an acoustic set for AOL music, and the videos of each performance were featured on his personal website. They are each available to view at the links below, and I hope you enjoy them.
The Trouble I’m In, from Wanderlust, 2008.
Love Remains The Same, from Wanderlust, 2008.
Comedown, from Bush’s Sixteen Stone, 1994.
Letting The Cables Sleep, from Bush’s The Science Of Things, 1999.
And I have to say it, he’s looking alright for being forty-three years old.
