Fightstar frontman Charlie Simpson tells Attitude magazine that he nearly walked out on Busted as long ago as Christmas 2003 after being forced to pose for a festive “Three Kings” picture for the cover of BBC pre-teen mag It’s Hot. “It’s been really confusing. Before Busted I was in bands with my mates back home, then the next thing I was living in London and dressing up as a king,” Simpson said. “It’s not that I haven’t enjoyed Busted, but Busted is a piss around and the aim of being in bands, ultimately, is to be in your ‘favourite’ band. That’s the idea with Fightstar. Not to sell records.”
