Busted was an English band consisting of James Bourne (rhythm guitar; born September 13, 1983), Charlie Simpson (lead guitar and occasionally drums; born June 7, 1985), and Matt Willis (then called Matt Jay; bass guitar; born May 8, 1983) which formed in 2001 and disbanded on January 14th 2005. In some countries (including The Netherlands) the band was known as Bust. Busted may also be recognized as the originating forces behind the breakout act McFly. They earned a place in the Guinness World Record by selling out London's Wembley Arena 6 nights in a row. Former band member Charlie Simpson has gained mass appeal as Cosmo UK named him one of the sexiest men alive in both 2003 and 2005.
