    At the time of release I was not a huge fan of Holy Ground. The old school Daisies sounded different and I was used to that. I was (and still am) a huge fan of Glenn’s solo work. Resonate is one of my favourite Glenn albums.


    But after listening more to the Dead Daisies Holy Ground album my opinion has changed for the good. This album grew on me a lot. It’s heavier that the older Daisies albums, but better. Glenn’s singing and bass is amazing. So is Doug’s guitar work. Very heavy but melodic and with a great groove in it. Holy Ground, the title song is amazing and so is Bassline (the bass in that song is killer). Bustle and Flow is also amazing (like a heavy Zeppelin song) and there are lots of good songs on this Dead Daisies album: Holy Ground, looking forward to hear it live in Europe in two months :)

    I hope that this tour will go on. Finally it’s time to rock again. Some (USA) bands, like Satriani’s band, are pushing the concert dates to 2023 due to covid restrictions. Why no touring, there are hardly any restrictions in Europe now. So it’s time to rock again.I hope to catch Glenn and his friends in the Matrix in Bochum, Germany. Looking forward to it.

    As a lurker on the German Deepest Purple forum (Snakebite), I’ve read the very sad news, that our long time forum contributor, Yvonne (Lioness) has recently passed away.


    Very, very sad to know that.


    When I started on this forum, a long time ago, Yvonne was one of the first digital friends here on board.

    She posted lots of interesting stuff here on the forum and on the German Forum and the Highway Star.


    A super Deep Purple and Glenn Hughes fan: Yvonne thanks for all you gave this forum and rest in peace: You will be missed here,

    Willem :(

    On the HTP tour I’ve seen Glenn and Joe in Belgium. Especially J.J. Marsh was amazing during that tour. He was on top of his game that period: playing Blackmore and even Iommi songs sounded amazing. In my opinion JJ was the best guitarplayer Glenn worked with in his solo years. Personally I would like to see (and hear) Glenn going back to solo with his own band ( JJ Marsh on guitar and Ash Sheehan on drums would be great).

    According to the website of The Dead Daisies they are playing some festival shows this Summer 2022 in Europe and some shows with Judas Priest (four in Germany) and with Whitesnake.


    From a source near the concert promotor in Holland I heard that the February, March 2022 date in Holland will be rescheduled for 2023 (that’s a long time, hope it doesn’t take that long) :(

    I see Ash Sheehan on the drums (we know him from the Glenn Hughes Deep Purple tour).

    On bass there is Jimmy, bass tech and tour manager for Glenn, I suppose :thumbup:


    PS. Jimmy made my profile photo with Glenn : very friendly guy and also a good bass player :thumbup:

    The March 6 show in Amsterdam has been moved to Haarlem in the Patronaat Hall. The Patronaat in Haarlem NL is a modern concert hall with a capacity of 1000 people. As this is the only show in Holland, I think it will sell out for sure :) Looking forward to it. Like to see the guys live.


    I prefer Glenn solo with his own band because that music is more diverse (rock, funk, soul, blues, ballads), but I sure like to see Glenn with the Daisies live in 2022:thumbup:

    Neil Murray is brilliant indeed. One of the best. Should be on my list. Old Whitesnake (Snakebite to Slide it in) is classic bluesrock.

    For me one of the best bands ever. David Coverdale ruled on these records. A must have:thumbup:

    For me the two best are the first and the second. The production of the first is somewhat thin (Cozy Powell’s drums could have more power), but Glenn’s singing is superb. Best song “Still the Night” :thumbup:

    Beatles would be the best, but that’s not possible. Second I should say Rainbow with Dio and that’s not possible too.

    Third I like to see the Glenn Hughes band again with JJ Marsh on guitar, that would be great :)
