Rossdale told Rolling Stone
, that when he was beginning Bush, Garbage founder Butch Vig
got hold of a copy of the Bush demo tape. Evidently liking what he heard, Vig considered Rossdale for the job of Garbage’s singer before Manson joined. He explained: "I heard he was interested and thought he was interested in producing my record, but it turned out he just liked my voice. And they found Shirley before I was ever really considered, so I was a distant second. Or probably more like 12th. And now it's sort of come full circle, because she sings on my record."
