If you were at the now, already, Legendary Robin2 show on September 20th 2008 you will remember a question asked during the Q&A session:
"Would you consider bringing back songs from your earlier solo albums like I Dont Want To Live That Way Again".
Glenn replied that yes he would and he promised to play that song when he next plays at the Robin. then he said that people should make requests and that "wolfy maybe you can sort it out via the website". cue everyone turning round to look at me!
As the poll thing has a limited number of answers(although David feel free to "upgrade" this thread if you can :p) lets just say that you should suggest ONE song that he hasnt done before live or for a long time.
So, to start, i'm going for a great song with a great groove, great riff and funky too!
Talking To Messiah from Feel.
Thanks Wolfy!! I have been staring at the board waiting for this. As the questioner suggested: I Don't Wanna Live That Way Again or for me it's Madelaine. I mentioned the second one in the interview for the Robin promo and made the point to Glenn that although it's on what is considered a "heavy" album (in more ways than one) it actually funks a bit too. Kind of the same ilke as Oil and Water.
I like to see Glenn's music as not rock vs funk but a spectrum where everything is soulful, but the delivery is sometimes more hard edged or jazzy depending on the mood.
Anyway it's great that Glenn is doing this. I guess he can't promise anything but it does give us a chance to play Fantasy Set List
You can't pick just one
Here's a few to chew on :p
L.A. Cutoff Play Me Out
Pickin' Up The Pieces From Now On...
Speak Your Mind Feel
I'm Not Your Slave Addiction
Too Far Gone The Way It Is
What Is Your Role? Incense & Peaches
Angela Return Of Crystal Karma
Inside Building The Machine
Isolation Soul Mover
Dark Star Soul Mover
Where There's A Will First Underground Nuclear Kitchen
Oh and Golden One (Gabi's Song) Voodoo Hill/Voodoo Hill, although I doubt that one counts, as it would then open it up for a bunch of others :p
But this main list will do for starters
I would say Coffee and vanilla from Feel
No doubt, it gotta be "Space High". This song IS Glenn Hughes.
A few tracks i would love to hear Glenn perform from his back catalogue
Talk about it
I dont want to live that way again
Speak your mind
Stoned in the temple
The way it is
From the way it is
She moves ghostly
Written all over your face
From Songs in the Key of Rock
It makes you realise just how many great tracks Glenn has written over his career not including his work with Deep Purple and Trapeze
my first think is "Blue Jade" from Addiction but according to the actual set list music style I'm agree with Harry : Coffee and vanilla is a very very good choice !!
Although there are many songs I would LOVE to hear...the "one" song for me would be Feels Like Home. That song really speaks to me and I feel it. I can't hardly get past that song on Building the Machine...I keep hitting the repeat button over and over. LOL
Crying For Love from Liesegang's No Strings Attached.
Time Will Find The Answer from John Norum's Face The Truth.
Probably not allowed but Glenn did co-write them and I'd love to see him play them.
Would love to hear 'what is a womans role' or 'second son'.
'what is a womans role' - Oh Yeah!
WHAT IS A WOMANS ROLE
Though I also like the idea of hearing a live version of the previously mentioned 'I'm not your slave' and 'Courageous'
touch my life, what is a woman's role, way back to the bone, however i really don't mind what glenn plays anymore because i think i've seen him play live the songs i want and any others are all on the internet so i reckon it would be interesting to see which songs glenn would pick without our influence. touch my life though from the medusa album would be top of the list for me though because i don't think i've seen that on any of his setlists anywhere, some of the notes on that song are awesome like where it goes, "i've been waitiiiiinnnng for >>SOOOOOO!!! LoonnG!
For the 'electric' set'; COFFEE AND VANILLA
for the 'acoustic set': BIG SKY
Too many to list. But if I have to choose just one its gotta be..........................................................................................................................Blue Jade !
Good point craze1. I am thinking there will be a couple of obvious ones from Addiction and Feel that Glenn may be happy to do, but I'm with you. It's all good live and what Hughesy chooses is ok with me
When Glenn said that to Wolfy I was one who turned around to Wolfy - and thought ...................... BIG TIME! From Feel - thats the one I would like to hear - but also I would love to hear him do some obscure stuff such as Wild Dogs as a tribute to Tommy Bolin - wouldn't that be just fab? What about King Of The Western World - (has anyone ever played that song full pelt in the car on the way to work???? What you mean NO? TRY IT)
COAST TO COAST................IT'S PURE VOICE, PURE GH,PURE MUSIC..........IT'S MY FAVORITE
Big time, superstition, she moves ghostly, from now on and the way it is.
Good job Wolfy
LAcut off (play me out)
Coffee & Vanilla + Push (Feel)
Gasoline + Higher places (Key of rock)
Higher ground (Stevie Wonder) - I love when big daddy play SW
& a tribute to T Bolin : "Shake the devil"
Ohhhhh no Wolfy just ONE ....
So l would say Coffee & Vanilla
