Already a music veteran at the age of 26, Charlie Simpson has announced his latest release in the form of ‘Farmer & His Gun’
So I’m sure most of you are familiar with the name, Charlie Simpson and that’s because he made up one third of Busted. Even though you may not admit it now, lets not lie, Busted were a major part of your childhood from 2000 – 2005. If you aren’t familiar with Busted (I don’t believe you) then you may have heard of the heavy rockers Fightstar, this was Charlie’s next project, most renowned for there song “Palahniuk’s Laughter” and you’re probably just as confused about how to say that as I am. Fightstar split in 2010 after a successful short career together playing festivals such as Sonisphere, and Charlie ventured into the music world as a solo artist, focusing on his voice and an acoustic guitar.
