DOUBLE 'DIFFERENT STAGES' 'BEST OF' CD OUT 27.8.02 ON SPV FOR THE PRICE OF A SINGLE ALBUM + UK GIGS WITH JOE LYNN TURNER
Firmly established among the very cream of rock vocalists, Cannock-born bassist/frontman Glenn Hughes has enjoyed a remarkable career that has seen him work with such big-hitters as Deep Purple, Trapeze, Black Sabbath, Whitesnake, the K.L.F. and even Earth Wind & Fire, as well as winning plaudits from fellow performers like Stevie Wonder, Free's Paul Rodgers and David Bowie.
Stylistically at the interface of rock, metal, funk, and soul, Glenn Hughes has always crossed musical boundaries, and diversity has traditionally been his lifeblood, as amply demonstrated on his new double album,'Different Stages', set for release on SPV through Koch on August 27th 2002. Drawn from across his entire SPV back catalogue['Burning Japan Live' (1994), 'Feel' (1995), 'Addiction' (1996), 'The Way It Is' (1999), 'Return Of Crystal Karma' (2000) & 'Building The Machine' (2001)], 'Different Stages' is a top value (double for price of a single) CD.
Hughes has worked long and hard to secure his reputation among the elite of rock singers. Having joined Deep Purple in the mid-'70s from his first band of note, Trapeze, the bassist proceeded to handle the vocal parts that David Coverdale found too difficult to sing! After the Purple experience, he formed the hugely influential Hughes/Thrall band with former Pat Travers Band guitarist Pat Thrall and then sang on Black Sabbath's critically acclaimed 'Seventh Star' album. In 1992 he was invited to sing lead vocals on the K.L.F.'s worldwide chartbuster 'America: What Time Is Love'; so impressed with Hughes' performance were the hip dance crew that they dubbed him 'The Voice Of Rock'. It stuck. Check out why when Glenn Hughes plays live with Joe Lynn Turner. Dates are:-
