Thursday 23 Jul 2009 The Live LoungeBBC Yalding House

The home of Radio 1's Live Lounge, featuring an exclusive performance from Fightstar.

Fightstar came into the Live Lounge and did their single, 'Never Change' and covered Jordin Sparks, 'Battlefield' after hearing Jo say she'd love someone to cover it one day.
Charlie talked about his Busted days and how hard it was to convince the critics when Fightstar first started out. He described one instance where Omar had a rotten fish thrown at him at Download festival whilst they were performing! But all the grief and rotten fish were worth it as they're now on their third album.
He also told Jo how he was responsible for nearly missing their performance at Reading Festival. It was the Kerrang! awards the night before and he was a bit worse for wear. He woke up with his band mates standing over him and he had 86 missed calls on his phone!!
