Gavin Rossdale
Some Days: I met someone from Fox in a grocery store who came up and asked if maybe I could write something for TV. It was nice because I love being commissioned. I must have been a dog in a previous life because I quite like someone throwing a ball and I have to fetch it. So I wrote the song for this TV show Drive. They had sixty songs already but felt they all missed the mark. It was a show about people on a journey, so I looked at it through my eyes and I wrote this song the next day. They loved it. I thought "Great – this song will make me a star like something on Grey's Anatomy." The...
