March 27 2013 • Glenn Hughes is starting to get things together on a new solo album following what he now describes as the irretrievable breakdown of Black Country Communion, and it will be in a rockier vein. BCC cannot return as such because Bonamassa has a veto on the use of the name.
March 21 2013 • Glenn Hughes is doing a short Australian tour at the end of April. He will perform in an ad hoc group called Kings Of Chaos. The show will be in two halves; acoustic first set and rock second set, covering both tracks from many of the groups he’s worked with.
April 22 Melbourne Corner Hotel
April 24 Brisbane Tempo Hotel
April 25 Sydney Basement
He is also guesting at a charity show on March 27 at the Whisky A Go Go in California.
Thanks to Stephen Clare and Matthew Kean.
Oct 29 2012 • BCC made the cover of the November edition of Metal Hammer, sent in by Trace Keane.
Sept 26. 2012 • The announcement and then sudden cancellation of a one off low-key UK Black Country Communion concert this month has seen a flurry of ‘official statements’ from members of the band and even their producer. It’s hard to know quite what is at the bottom of all this, even though some of it has been conducted through the very public medium of Twitter. Just when you’ve got a new album to promote it does seem like poor timing. Joe Bonamassa – who himself has a new live CD out any day – has felt the need to clarify things from his point of view. “I love all the guys in BCC and love making music with them. I will always consider each of them a dear friend and the door is always open at least from my point of view. I just can’t do it at this point with all the things that been said unfairly about me and my intentions toward this band.. It would not be an honest show for me and I will not take the money from the fans in that fashion.”
Watch this space I suppose! Thanks to Tim Summers. The third BCC album is due any time now and is available through the DTB Online store.
The August 2012 issue of the American magazine Cycle Source has a neat photo of Glenn Hughes on the cover. Thanks to Trace Keane for the scan.
