This week on SPIN Presents Lipps ServiceGavin Rossdale of Bush sat down with host Scott Lipps, following this month’s release of the band’s latest album, The Art of Survival.

In a wide-ranging conversation, featuring the debut appearance of co-host Kiki Wongo, Rossdale began with talking about Bush’s recent tour of North America with Alice in Chains and Breaking Benjamin. The long-running U.K. group was armed with material from its two pandemic-era albums, 2020’s The Kingdom and The Art of Survival.

Rossdale brought his two kids to some of the shows, and found them as excited about the backstage food trucks and free hot dogs as the concerts themselves. One night, when one of the food trucks didn’t show up, Rossdale, who hosts an Instagram page dedicated to his love for cooking, jumped in as a sous chef to help the tour’s chef feed more than 40 crew members. The musician filmed a pilot for a cooking show more than three years ago, which was to feature him cooking at his home for other celebrities, but the program has yet to see the light of day.

Later in the conversation, Rossdale talked about being unsure of his singing voice and writing his first song, which became the Bush hit “Comedown.”

On the last Lipps Service episode, Lipps sat down with pop star Tove Lo, ahead of the release of her latest record, Dirt Femme. Tove Lo talked about the correct way to pronounce her name, “Too-Va-Loo,” and how she’s used to people butchering the Swedish pronunciation.

Since it began in 2018, the acclaimed podcast has featured many of the biggest voices and personalities in music, including exclusive interviews with Red Hot Chili Peppers singer Anthony Kiedis, David Lee Roth, Shepard Fairey, Courtney Love, Dove Cameron, Mick Fleetwood, Nikki Sixx, Perry Farrell, and many more.
