It really would be a shame if this album never sees the light of day - but I guess with each passing year it becomes more and more unlikely.
I love Pat Thrall's guitar playing and think the original Hughes/Thrall album is one of the best I've ever heard.
Anyway, I live in hope.
Being a guitar player myself, this was an interesting post. Wasn't aware of this model Epiphone.
I have 6 Gibsons - not an obvious choice given that I'm always more comfortable with a whammy bar.
Have never owned a 335 but I do have a Line 6 Variax which does a killer emulation.
Certainly like to hear this. Will look out for it.
I also wouldn't mind a double album - just want it to see the light of day in some form.
Would be good if it showcased all of the styles that Glenn is master of.
Excellent to see you rewarded in this way - very well deserved.
I always liked this lineup of Deep Purple.
I really like Made In Europe although it's too short.
Always felt that Mr Coverdale didn't really like sharing the vocal duties.
Used some other social sites on the Net but not really got into Twitter .... guess I'll have a good excuse now!
Really glad I found this site.
Listened to a lot of Glenn over the years - Trapeze, Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, the solo stuff and I think the Hughes/Thrall album is one of the greatest of all time.
I'm really going to enjoy hanging out here.
Yea, I would've thought it should've been Judas Priest supporting Whitesnake...
Not exactly the same sort of music either is it - I wouldn't have thought that fans of one would necessarily be fans of the other.
Never actually seen Whitesnake - would probably want to have been the Moody-Marsden version if I did though.
Did see Judas Priest once back in about 1978 I think it was at Wolverhampton Civic Hall. They were never my favourite band but I enjoyed the show. Dissident Aggressor and Beyond The Realms Of Death are probably the tracks of theirs I like best.
I'm new here too and hadn't read most of that stuff, so I've just spent an interesting ten minutes.
I was going to say that maybe the autobiography was going to be short because Glenn had forgotten a lot of it - but I see that he says that because he didn't do a lot of weed his memory's ok!
Anyway, really looking forward to it when it comes out.
Be interesting to compare Glenn's impressions of Blackmore with those of Dio when his book comes out too.
