Legendary singer and bassist Glenn Hughes (ex-DEEP PURPLE, BLACK SABBATH) will release his autobiography, "The Life, Near Death, And Rebirth Of A Rock Star: Deep Purple And Beyond", later this year via Foruli Publications. The book, co-written with Joel McIver and featuring an introduction by METALLICA's Lars Ulrich, will appear in a luxury first edition complete with rare photos and an exclusive 10" vinyl EP featuring the following all-new recordings:

* "What Is A Woman's Role?" (TRAPEZE, written by Hughes)
* "Holy Man" (DEEP PURPLE, written by Hughes, David Coverdale, Jon Lord)
* "Dying To Live" (brand new acoustic Glenn Hughes track)

Hughes said, "My autobiography is going to be a literary event. I've been working on this book for the last three years and you've never read anything like it. It's the true story of the Voice Of Rock, from my childhood via my career in TRAPEZE and DEEP PURPLE to my addiction and recovery. I'm now on top of the world as a solo artist and after so many years of sobriety, I can hardly believe that I survived. I spent a million dollars on cocaine and, when you've read this book, you won't believe it either."

"The Life, Near Death, And Rebirth Of A Rock Star: Deep Purple And Beyond" features contributions from Hughes' friend and comrade in DEEP PURPLE David Coverdale, his lifelong musical collaborator Tony Iommi of BLACK SABBATH and a host of others, including Angie Bowie, John Varvatos and the members of THE KLF (with whom Hughes scored a global hit in 1991).

The publisher, Foruli Publications, is a globally-recognized specialist in collectable, high-quality books.

Wow. I always thought he was a good singer... but apparently, he thinks he's a legendary singer. :lmao:

According to Express & Star, legendary vocalist/bassist Glenn Hughes (BLACK SABBATH, DEEP PURPLE) offered to stage a concert to help raise funds for crisis-hit U.K. music club JB's.

Hughes told how the club in Castle Hill, Dudley, helped launch his career — and pledged the support of his new supergroup BLACK COUNTRY COMMUNION.

"This beautiful club was the birthplace for me, and where I started out in Britain," he said.

"I would do anything to help, and the group will help in any way it can, simply because of the heritage it holds for me and us as a group. If they need someone to play there and raise awareness, you can count me in to do that."

Legendary bassist/vocalist Glenn Hughes (DEEP PURPLE, TRAPEZE, BLACK SABBATH, BLACK COUNTRY COMMUNION) will spend December and January writing material for his next solo album. He says, "There is a fire inside like never [before]."

In a recent interview with IHeartGuitarBlog.com, Hughes stated about his forthcoming solo CD, "I'm really thinking about making a Glenn album early next year. It's been four years since I entered the studio for 'F.U.N.K.', but my hat now has been very much thrown into the rock ring. What I will do on the next Glenn album, is portray the image of the Glenn Hughes on the BLACK COUNTRY COMMUNION albums. Because it's the same Glenn that was in DEEP PURPLE, really. The classic rock iconic Glenn that, let's be clear, the majority of the fans want. The 'F.U.N.K.' album was very well recorded and I love the songs, but that's for a cultured audience and a different kind of audience. It's more of a cult audience, if you will. But my audience now with BLACK COUNTRY COMMUNION and a lot of my fans are rockers, man, so it's time to rock. So the next album will be a rock record."

Hughes' latest solo CD, "First Underground Nuclear Kitchen (F.U.N.K.)", received its official North American release on October 7, 2008 via Blistering Records through Ryko/Warner distribution. The CD came out in Europe in May 2008 via Frontiers Records.

Produced by Glenn in Los Angeles, after countless hours spent writing in his home studio, "F.U.N.K." was another magnificent statement from the "Voice of Rock." "It is a roots album, it is a true account of my musical heritage but also fearless and multi-dimensional," Hughes said shortly after the CD's release. Once again all drums on the record were played by none other than the great Chad Smith of the RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS, while Luis Maldonado took care of the majority of the guitars (JJ Marsh and George Nastos only appear on two songs each) and Anders Olinder is on keyboards (with Ed Roth guesting on three songs).

On February 12, "Live In Wolverhampton", a 2CD set from bassist Glenn Hughes will be released via earMusic/Armoury Records.

Recorded in June 2009, this two-night celebration of Glenn Hughes' music took place in his English hometown of Bilston, Wolverhampton. These nights were packed with hits and favorites culled from his rich musical career.

The first night included cuts from Hughes' time as lead vocalist in DEEP PURPLE. "Crave", "Muscle & Blood", "Don't Let Me Bleed" and "Mistreated" were all served up to an enthusiastic audience. The second evening, themed "You Are The Music: An Evening Of Trapeze", was the first time that Hughes has performed songs preceding his days in DEEP PURPLE. Tracks such as "Touch My Life", "Black Cloud", "Coast To Coast" and "You Are The Music" were all unearthed from the TRAPEZE repertoire. Performing this music struck an emotional chord with Hughes, as former TRAPEZE guitarist Mel Galley had recently passed away. It proved to be a fitting remembrance to perform these songs, and the emotion of the night is captured beautifully on "Live In Wolverhampton".

From deep cuts to world-beloved legendary hits, "Live At Wolverhampton" is a definitive live collection of Glenn Hughes history.

Hughes currently performs in BLACK COUNTRY COMMUNION, a band he founded in 2009 with guitarist/vocalist Joe Bonamassa.

"Live In Wolverhampton" track listing:

Disc 1:

01. Muscle & Blood
02. You Got Soul
03. Love Communion
04. Don't Let Me Bleed
05. What's Going On Here
06. Mistreated
07. Crave
08. Hold Out Your Life

Disc 2:

01. Way Back To The Bone
02. Touch My Life
03. Jury
04. Coast To Coast
05. Seafull
06. Good Love
07. Your Love Is Alright
08. Medusa
09. You Are The Music
10. Black Cloud

I did the same thing with the second BCC album. There is no "BBC III" though... Are you talking about "Afterglow"?

Incidentally, I am listening to the Glenn Hughes "Wolverhampton" CDs right now. Out-fucking-standing, especially the Trapeze show on disc 2. :guitar3:

I'm going to order the DVD. In fact, I can't figure out for the life of me why I didn't order it when I ordered the CDs? :headsmack:

I'm an idjit.
