Everything back to the beginning! Five years ago, Glenn Hughes exploded just over a kilometer away from the Cologne hotel where the interview on the current record of Black Country Communion takes place. At that time he promoted their third album "Afterglow": Hughes made a fuss about the fact that nobody else in the band was comfortable talking to the press and that there was no tour either. The result: Joe Bonamassa and his manager Roy Weisman pulled the rip cord and pushed BCC onto the siding. But now the quartet is back, with the best team performance since their debut. And Hughes is visibly pleased.
Two brothers in spirit found themselves in exile in California: the English Glenn Hughes (ex-Trapeze, ex-Deep Purple) and Jason Bonham. After Bonham had represented his father at the legendary 2007 O2-Gig in a grandiose way and after several sessions with John Paul Jones and Jimmy Page as well as singers like Steven Tyler (Aerosmith) or Myles Kennedy (Slash, Alter Bridge), Led Zeppelin had not been continued without Robert Plant, the drummer suddenly gave the pulse of a supergroup: Black Country Communion. Stylistically anchored in the seventies, the band also had an output corresponding to that time: three albums in three years. When Hughes complained loudly that Black Country Communion was acting like a hobby band for Joe Bonamassa and could not establish itself as an independent force, the star guitarist's management pulled the plug.
To everything there is a season
He'd be in jail by a hair's breadth. He was saved from that by joining the army. There he met Billy Cox, with whom he would later play in Woodstock, among other places. But before this happened, the US American Jimi Hendrix had to take the road via England to be recognised as a star in his home country. We remember important stages in the short life of the immortal rock guitarist, who would have turned 70 on 27 November.
