History

Hughes is a veteran of Trapeze, Deep Purple and Black Sabbath, among others, who over time has managed to work on his solo career. Born in Cannock, England, Hughes came to prominence on Deep Purple's 1974 album Burn. He left Deep Purple in 1976.

More recently Hughes has been involved with Joe Lynn Turner in the Hughes Turner Project (HTP) which has formed the reason for much touring. He is also part of the revolving cast of The Legends Of Rock which means more recording and touring. Born in 2002, Shape 68 is a pop band featuring Hughes, drummer Robin DiMaggio and guitarist Jeff Kollman.

Hughes is also the proprietor of Pink Cloud Records.

2004 brought the Soulfully Live In The City Of Angels CD and DVD. Drummer Jason Bonham (Bonham and Led Zeppelin) and singer and bassist Glenn Hughes recruited guitarist Joe Bonamassa for a new project called Black Country in 2010. Hughes was involved in the tributes to Dio following the singer’s death. Hughes was participating in the vocals department with the remaning members of Heaven & Hell. Glenn Hughes was touring the UK that September and October. Glenn Hughes released an autobiography, Deep Purple And Beyond: Scenes From The Life Of A Rock Star, in 2011 through Foruli Publications. The book was co-written with Joel McIver and featured an introduction by Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich. Glenn Hughes would undertake his first U.K. solo acoustic tour featuring acoustic versions of songs from his career in the autumn. In late 2013, Glenn Hughes and Jason Bonham had a new band called California Breed. In 2014, Glenn Hughes revealed to Billboard that he nearly died in 2013 and underwent heart surgery in order to to replace his aortic valve after which he survived near-fatal complications. Glenn Hughes would tour Europe in September and October of 2015. The tour would feature material from all his previous bands including Deep Purple, Trapeze, Black Country Communion and California Breed as well as solo material. Glenn Hughes rescheduled his U.S.A. tour. The tour was scheduled to begin on March 2nd 2016 in San Jose, California, but would now kick off on August 9th in Annapolis, Maryland. The man underwent dual knee-replacement in January and healing was taking longer than expected.

Heavy metal fans should approach his output selectively as the output oscillates between metal, pop and funk.

Reviews

GLENN HUGHES - BUILDING THE MACHINE - STEAMHAMMER
'It's been so long...I don't know how long I've been gone,' sings Hughes on Don't Let It Slip Away and so it may seem to most Canadian fans. For Hughes is the singer and bassist best known for his celebrated work with the likes of Trapeze, Deep Purple, Black Sabbath and Phenomena in years past. Less publicized is Hughes' solo career spanning 25 years and many albums where Hughes lets loose and intermittently delves into his many loves, hard rock, rock, soul and the blues. Building The Machine is another such album. Be it poppier moments (Big Sky), Deep Purple flashbacks (Highball Shooter), the albums best moment on the powerful hard rocking belter (Don't Let It Slip Away) or the funkier songs which could fit on any of the Living Color albums, Hughes proves that he has it in him to release an album full of talent and gusto. - Ali "The Metallian"

GLENN HUGHES - FIRST UNDERGROUND NUCLEAR KITCHEN - BLISTERING  
Warning metal fans! First underground Nuclear Kitchen (FUNK) is not metal, hard rock or even rock, but funk rock to the highest degree. With Chad Smith of Red Hot Chilli Peppers on drums the man who went from psychedelic to hard rock and has claimed soul music as his true love in recent years has funked out and issued a state-of-the-art funk rock album here. The songs have a clear Living Colour vibe to them. Hughes goes Parliament on the title track and in the process almost sounds like Mike Patton of Faith No More every second song. The grooves recall Prince and the smooth transition that comes across as anything but fake is a tribute to the man’s versatility. Check out the hair-do that is so '70s. A little longer please for this dreaming grrl. - Sheila Wes Det
