While opening up about his son is following in his and his ex-wife Gwen Stefaniâ€™s musical footsteps, Bush frontman Gavin Rossdale said his oldest boy is recording songs on a par with Justin Bieberâ€™s tracks.
Gavin Rossdaleâ€™s son is recording â€œJustin Bieber-quality singlesâ€. The Bush frontman, 57, has three sons with his now ex-wife Gwen Stefani, 53 â€“ Kingston, 17, Zuma, 15, and Apollo, nine, as well as daughter Daisy, 34, from a previous relationship with the 53-year-old English designer Pearl Lowe, and said his oldest boy is following in his and Gwenâ€™s musical footsteps. He told UsWeekly: â€œI got him a Logic studio for Christmas. Heâ€™s got my whole (guitar) pedal rig, a bunch of vintage guitars, all this stuff. Iâ€™ve helped him out to have a nice setup, but that is it.â€ Gavin added along with recording â€œfor himselfâ€, Kingston has been â€œworking with other people and writing some way legit, Justin Bieber-quality singlesâ€. He said about the teenâ€™s â€œear for melodyâ€: â€œIâ€™m like, â€˜Oh, God. Itâ€™s really good. I canâ€™t believe it.'â€ The performer also said Kingston is â€œintentionalâ€ about his talent and keeping his musical interests â€œindependentâ€ from his famous parents. He added: â€œI wish he were really deeply into (my music), but heâ€™s not. Heâ€™s into the (Smashing) Pumpkins, which is great. Theyâ€™re an incredible band. â€œWhatâ€™s so strange, anthropologically, is that he does not quiz me about stuff. â€œHe has to break away from me and discover things (and) almost distance himself from me, which is painful.â€ Gavin and Gwen had Kingston in 2006, before they called in quits in 2015 ahead of their divorce being finalised a year later. No Doubt singer Gwen has moved on with her fellow â€˜Voiceâ€™ judge Blake Shelton, 47, who she married in 2021. Kingston performed publicly for the first time at Blakeâ€™s Oklahoma bar Ole Red in August and his song was shared via TikTok, with social media users praising him in the comments section for looking like his â€œdadâ€™s twinâ€. Gavin has told â€˜This Morningâ€™ he thinks it would be â€œcrazyâ€ for his children to chase showbiz careers, but cautioned they should be focusing on computing as a career. He added: â€œ(They should) go into tech, do something like that. Itâ€™s my responsibility to make them so they contribute to society as opposed to take away from society.â€ Read more
