Busted was an English band consisting of James Bourne (rhythm guitar; born 13 September 1983), Charlie Simpson (lead guitar and occasionally drums; born 7 June 1985), and Matt Willis (then called Matt Jay; bass guitar; born 8 May 1983) which formed in 2001 and disbanded on 14 January 2005. In some countries (including The Netherlands) the band was known as Bust. Busted may also be recognised as the originating force behind the breakout act McFly. They earned a place in the Guinness World Record by selling out London's Wembley Arena six nights in a row.
America or Busted:
The TV series "America or Busted", about Busted's attempts to achieve success in the United States, debuted on MTV UK and Ireland in November 2004. Over the course of the series, the audience see Busted's attempts to 'break' America dwindle as interviews fall through and performances remain limited both in terms of audience size and press attention.
After the failure of the US tour, rumours soon began to surface that a split was imminent. Simpson announced that he had joined Fightstar (a post-hardcore band which differs greatly from the music Busted recorded) and decided to leave Busted to concentrate on the other band. Busted then formally disbanded at a press conference on 14 January 2005. Simpson recently stated that he left Busted because it was not the legacy he wanted to leave behind. Fightstar has since left its UK record label and expects to go to America in the coming months as Simpson perceives America to be much more welcoming of their musical style.
Bourne went on to release music through his rock band Son of Dork. Willis has also set up a solo career, having released his first single "Up All Night" in May 2006. Bourne and Willis are cited as still maintaining a friendship while it appears Simpson sees them very rarely. "Hey Kid" was Willis' next single release. The track is also the leading track on the soundtrack to American teen comedy drama John Tucker Must Die.It was also featured an the Stormbreaker soundtrack(American title:Alex Rider Operation Stormbreaker). Matt Willis released another track called "Don't Let It Go To Waste", several days after he was declared the winner of the latest series of I'm a Celebrity, Get Me out of Here!. "Don't Let It Go To Waste" is also the name of his debut album. Matt Willis' fourth single "Crash" featured in the film Mr Bean's Holiday.
