Charlie Simpson - Leaving Uppingham At 16 To Set Up 'Busted' - How The Biggest Band In The UK Fell Apart & Getting Ripped Off For Millions By His Accountant

Season 8, Episode 110,  Nov 24, 2022, 05:15 AM

Today we're delighted to be joined by the lead singer of Busted in Charlie Simpson, who tells us the incredible story of how he left Uppingham at 16 and went onto sell over 5 million records with the band, winning 3 BRIT Awards in the process, before we find out how things started to implode and get ugly.
We hear of the crazy early days of the band where every lady in the country was trying to sleep with him and investigate what life was like for the biggest band in the country in the early 2000s. We also find out why Charlie got so depressed and angry in the band, especially when they went to try and break the US and how this was the catalyst for the end of the band. We discuss - sex, drugs rock n roll and comebacks and a whole host of public school experiences - so sit back and enjoy the incredibly charming and cultured Charlie Simpson.
