Bush Guitarist Speaks Out On Split
“The decision was taken out of my hands and I was sacked six days after the birth of my son,” says Pulsford. “I’d tried to quit in September when there were complications during my wife’s pregnancy and I didn’t see how I could continue but I was persuaded to carry on by getting a temporary replacement for the US tour. My motivation then had been to not screw things up for the band. I didn’t want to quit but it was obvious what my priority was and I couldn’t see how I could promote a record by not being around.
“And then out of the blue a poisonous email from Gavin telling me that he didn’t want me to return. He said the whole band felt the same way which was strange as Dave had rung me the day before and spoken for over an hour and failed to mention anything. After the e-mail I was unable to contact any of them and basically left to stew while they were on tour!”
