Glenn's songwriting?

  • I was wondering how Glenn writes songs. Some songs are credited solely to him while others have co-writers. Glenn said he has written all the songs for the upcoming album. Does he write everything himself first and then give the other band members a credit based on the input they bring after Glenn has written the songs or does he really sit down with the guitarists and write together?

    The songs for the Hughes/Thrall II album were supposed to be written already. Satellite was one of these songs. Pat was not credited though while all previous Hughes/Thrall songs were co-written. This led me to believe Glenn writes everything himself before getting together with the other guys in the band and then gives them a credit if their contribution is significant enough.

    Very good post. Must admit that I've never thought of this the way you have nicely elaborated. I tend to take the credits as their are writen (exept for Burn where Glenn is uncredited :confused:) but now after agreeing with what you say, (that Glenn writes most of the stuff and credits the others for their contribution) I do look at this differently.

    Thanks :claphands

    Good question...

    I am @ a point now in my life where I want to show all of me as a person, and as a Songwriter. A good friend of mine, in the early '90's, said that in order to make a real GH album, it would be appropriate for me to write all the material. I now understand what he meant... songwriting is my life blood, more now than, let's say, 20yrs ago.

    I wrote with other guys as a pact of camaraderie, and it was fun...

    Now I am in a different spiritual place in my life...

    Surely if I could write Coast to Coast alone, in 1971, surely I could write a Soul Mover or a Satellite etc...?

    This is a new chapter for me...to walk thru the fear...here, right now...

    To feel..
    To be worthy...
    To be capable...
    And to love...
