In December 2016, Glenn was featured on the cover of the digital Screamer Magazine, based in L.A.
To his fans in California, Hughes had this to say: “People of L.A., rock fans, music fans, people who dare to dream… I’ve been living amongst you for 43 years. I came here on a whim listening to Crosby, Stills and Nash and I moved into Laurel Canyon to be close to the peace sign movement and then I joined Deep Purple… so I’ve been living in L.A. most of my life. I’m very much American. I live in paradise in a country that is riddled with fear at the moment, but us Americans need to stay together. Music is the healer. It’s not going to save the world, but it’s going to heal it. Let the music come to you. All I can say to you is I love you so much from the bottom of my heart. I’m so glad to be a Californian…. God bless you all, I’ll see you soon.”
