Charlie Robert Simpson (born 7 June 1985 in Woodbridge, Suffolk, England), was the youngest member of the highly successful punk pop group Busted, and is now the vocalist and guitarist in Post Hardcore band Fightstar. He has two older brothers, Will and Edd - Will is the vocalist and guitarist in Brigade and Edd plays in a band called Prego. Simpson has a very musical family dating back to Sir William Sterndale-Bennett (mother’s maiden name) in 1826 who was a British pianist, conductor, and composer, a notable figure in the musical life of his time.Simpson attended public school Uppingham to which he obtained a drama scholarship. He left school after his GCSE exams. He achieved an A* for his GSCE music and, for his performance in the exam, he chose to play ‘Miss you love’ from Silverchair’s ‘Neon Ballroom’ album. The public school was also attended by Harry Judd, Stephen Fry and Johnny Vaughan. He was selected as the third member of Busted, after responding to an advertisement placed by Matt and James in NME magazine in 2001. He plays guitar, piano, drums and bass, and sings vocals.

On 14 January 2005, Simpson decided to leave Busted after deciding to concentrate on his newer band, Fightstar.
