Busted's Unsuitable Members

Subscribe to Busted alerts

Busted had to part company with two former members because they looked better suited to a boyband than a pop punk outfit.

Although the familiar faces of MATT JAY and James Bourne were in the band from the start, two formerly unknown band members - OWEN DOYLE and KI FITZGERALD - completed the original line-up.

But Busted struggled to entice the interests of record company chiefs because Doyle and Fitzgerald didn't posses the right rock credentials, so they decided to quit.

Doyle says, "Record companies told me I looked too much like someone who should be in Westlife. I couldn't do all the jumping up and down."

The CRASHED THE WEDDING trio - now completed by frontman CHARLIE SIMPSON - have since topped the UK charts with a string of hits.
