Gavin McGregor Rossdale, 51 years of age is known for being the lead singer and rhythm guitarist of the rock band Bush and marrying Gwen Stefani.

Gavin Rossdale was born in St. Marylebone, London, and England; the son of Barbara Stephan (née Bowie) and Douglas Rossdale, a doctor. His mother was born in Scotland and his father's parents were of Russian Jewish descent, the family's surname originally being Rosenthal. His parents divorced when he was eleven years old, and he was raised primarily by his father and aunt.

The 2013 recipient of the "British Academy's Ivor Novello Award for International Achievement" was born and raised in London, where he developed the love for music that would lead him to become the frontman of post-grunge rock band Bush.

The group became one of the most commercially successful rock banks of the 1990s, selling more than 10 million records in the USA. Their debut album, Sixteen Stone (released in 1994) is certified 6 times multi-platinum by the RIAA. They weren't as popular in the UK, achieving less success in their home country.

Bush went on hiatus between 2003 and 2010. Gavin Rossdale joined a new band called "Institute," which didn't really take off, and also starred in films like Zoolander, Little Black Book, The Game of Their Lives, Constantine, How to Rob a Bank during the break. They reformed in 2010 and have been collaborating together ever since.

On a more personal note, Gavin Rossdale is probably best known as the ex-husband of Gwen Stefani. Gavin Rossdale has three sons with Gwen Stefani; Kingston James McGregor Rossdale (born May 26, 2006), Zuma Nesta Rock Rossdale (born August 21, 2008) and Apollo Bowie Flynn Rossdale (born February 28, 2014).

The pair first met in the early 1990s while Gavin Rossdale was touring with Bush and they later married in 2002, before divorcing in 2015. In 2004 it was also revealed that model Daisy Lowe, his godchild, was actually his daughter.
