Busted 'Split For Good'
0
Busted are on the verge of splitting up for good, reports Ananova. Frontman Charlie Simpson, 19, has made it clear to bandmates Matt Jay and James Bourne that he wants out. The trio have not spoken to each other since their last gig at Wembley three weeks ago. The group, together for two years, are now preparing a summit to discuss how to handle the break-up. Both Matt and James are said to be devastated at the news and have begged Charlie to reconsider. But he is about to go on a two-month tour with his rock group Fightstar - and wants to quit. A source said: "Things are so bad between the boy at the moment that they all realise a split is inevitable. Charlie has never really hung out with Matt or James. None of them are close, you have to remember the band were put together."

    I feel sorry for Fightstar, you just know they're gonna get marketed as the new Busted. Publicity for the wrong reasons. Ah, Busted were funny. Oh well.

    i respect him for moving to a less popular band that makes decent music he likes rather than being in a popular manufactured band that's very devided in liking and makes shit music or is this all manufactured crap and he'll be coming back? i sure hope not, we cant have the music industry trying to be WWE

    What a friggin relief. They were probably the worst group in history. I'm sure that they were the only ones who were morse worse than Good Charlotte or Simple Plan. There were a pop trendfag boy band except they play instruments, however they failed in music horribly. Hearing the first four notes of one of their songs just made me sick.All of their songs were completely retarted... In short, I'm glad they're dead. But one thing that confused me. Why the hell they would be on a guitar site?

    shotgunjoe: people who like busted probably hav small penises.
    Mine's two inches. : Why are you all so bothered about Busted? They're far better than the manufactured crap out there, and if you think Busted are manufactured then you clearly don't know what you're talking about. I've been a fan since the start and I know full well that they're not.

    Charlie has never really hung out with Matt or James. None of them are close, you have to remember the band were put together.
    May I just point out that that is the biggest pile of crap ever? So is the rest of it, to be honest. But they've been best friends for years, they got together way before they were even looking to be signed. These 'sources' are just attention-seeking losers looking for easy money by selling sh*t like that. If you really want to know what's happening, yes, they are taking a break. What all the news stories have missed out is the reason for taking a break - they're writing the new album. Charlie, meanwhile, is taking advantage of the situation by touring with Fightstar, and that's why there's rumours in the first place. Anyway, there's a press conference and then it'll be confirmed as to whether they are splitting or not.

    yea, poor fightstar, they might be good (i havent heard them yet, any links?) but people wil hate them for charlie DEATH TO BAD EMO

    Why do you guys really hate them? I mean, if you don't like them, don't listen to them. Isn't it simple? If you hate someone, just don't listen to the, They haven't done anything to you, just bringing out their music. They are just 3 guys, that happen to bring out their music that's more pop.. What's the big deal? They are great. They are awesome. Don't listen to them, or rant them, because you DON'T HAVE to listen to them. You see them on TV, shut the TV off, you hear them on the radio, shut off the radio, hear someone sing their song, go away from that person. And for me personally... I love them, and I know that this must be a rumour, cos they never wanted to split without telling the fans first. We didn't hear this from them just from sources

    Woohoo. For all you asking why we hate them so much its because thanks to them there's been a whole new generation of pop-punk-poser motherf'uckers created and they'll be hard to erase.. we just need guns. Lots of guns. And maybe some candy.

    I do agree with clazz, their unreleased tracks had a deeper meaning than released ones which is a shame. But I dont understand why people read this bands news page just to say that they are a created 'fake' band in which they werent!!! If u dont like the band, dont read their news!!!

    this is all bullshit.... i bet in a years time they will do a "busted reunited tour". its just a ***ing con to make money.
