10 Questions w/Glenn Hughes

  • 10 Questions with GLENN HUGHES
    by Jason Ritchie

    A legendary vocal talent and go listen to his excellent new solo
    album Soul Mover.

    1. What are you currently up to? (e.g. touring/studio, etc.)

    I am getting ready to go out on a 3 month European tour to promote my
    new album Soul Mover.

    2. Take us through some of your personal highlights of the new
    album Soul Mover please...

    Impossible for me to say. The whole album is one complete highlight.
    We recorded this live in the studio - it was a great vibe the whole
    time. This album means a lot to me.

    3. How did you hook-up with Chad Smith of the RHCP? Is this the start
    of a long-term partnership?

    We met at the NAMM convention in LA through Sabian - we hit it right
    off. We are like brothers - we are best friends. We understand each
    other personally and musically. Chad and I will always play together.

    4. What style of music do you personally prefer singing/performing
    and do you find sometimes that you may record a particular
    song/album more with the fans in mind than your own choice?

    I tend to do what I feel on the inside. If I did everything for other
    people, I would never be fulfilled.

    5. Will another Hughes/Thrall album ever see the light of day? Why do
    you think that album is held in such high regard by fans and were you
    disappointed it never got the sales success it deserved?

    It will never happen again. Pat is too busy and so am I. I am not
    disappointed. The people that know about it, love it and that is what
    counts.

    6. Of all the guest vocals you've recorded down the years which have
    been the most enjoyable and any that you wish you hadn't done in
    hindsight?

    Well, to be honest, most of the time I am either produced by someone
    who wants their vision of what I should be, or I do a great
    performance and then later I hear the mix and I am not too impressed
    with what they did, so I don't think about it too much.

    7. The excellent Hughes/Iommi album has been released finally. Why
    was this unreleased for so long and any plans to work some more with
    Tony Iommi?

    Someone bootlegged this years ago and Tony shelved it. One day, not
    too long ago, he took it out and was listening and called me and
    said, "we should put this out", so we did. I love working with Tony. we
    just finished working on some new songs that are going to blow your
    mind.

    8. Having come through a troubled time in the 80's are you happy with
    your music now? What helped you through those tough times?

    I am very happy now - my higher power.

    9. What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?

    I always write and play. Every day. I walk, play with my dogs, watch
    football.

    10. Message to your fans...

    Thanks for your years of support. It means a lot to me.

    Short and to the point. Gutted about point five though........:(


    So Am I!:confused: , I believe this could have been Glenn's most popular collaboration with anyone to date. But I'm sure the new Iommi/Hughes will get good recognition.

  • Just so the entire Soul Mover Vid... Hope he and Chad Play for a Long While.. Sad also about Pat!! But REAL HAPPY About Tony!!!

    Please Tour New York.... (Bit selfish...)
