of Their Lives. His work as Balthazar in Constantine marks Rossdale's biggest role to date.
Bush was formed in London in 1992. They released their debut album, Sixteen Stone, in 1994, which became a surprise hit, climbing up the charts throughout 1995 and by 1996 breaking into the Top 10. The next record, Razorblade Suitcase, debuted at No. 1 in America. The band received critical acclaim and continued successes with their four subsequent albums and eventually sold more than fifteen million copies.
In the summer of 2002, Rossdale released his first solo song entitled Adrenaline, which he co-wrote, for the Vin Diesel action film XXX. He also sang and performed with the Blue Man Group for the lead song on Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines. Rossdale has formed a new band, Institute, which will release an album later this year on Interscope Records.
