GLENN HUGHES – “The Voice of Rock” – examines his own back pages on this historic in-concert recording. Over two nights, June 6th & 7th 2009, Hughes’ enthralled hometown audiences with his unique brand of rock-funk when he packed out The Robin 2 Hotel in Bilston, Wolverhampton, UK.

The first night, billed as ‘Glenn Hughes with his Full Band’ saw him performing music from his glory days with Deep Purple in 1973 on to 2009. Songs including ‘Muscle & Blood’ (from the album Hughes/Thrall), ‘You Got Soul’ (from Music for the Divine), ‘Don’t Let Me Bleed’ (from Soul Mover) and ‘Crave’ (from First Underground Nuclear Kitchen) Hughes has rarely performed in the UK before.

The second night, billed as ‘You Are the Music’: An Evening of Trapeze’ saw Hughes performing a full Trapeze set for the first time as a solo performer. Dedicated to the memory of his friend and former Trapeze guitarist Mel Galley, who passed away in July 2008, Hughes delivered emotionally charged versions of songs taken from the albums Medusa (‘Touch My Life’, ‘Black Cloud’, ‘Medusa’) and You Are the Music… We’re Just the Band (‘Way Back to the Bone’, ‘Coast to Coast’, ‘You Are the Music’).

The music is often heavy, sometimes graceful and never less than riveting. Hughes’ soulful, distinctive voice is superlative throughout, pleading, powerful and always from the heart.

Beautifully presented with superb sound quality, this DVD is a must for the Glenn Hughes aficionado and fans of Classic Rock.

BONUS FEATURES:

* WOLVES – Visit The Molineux Stadium
* INTERVIEW – Trapeze Manager, TONY PERRY

Autobiography – ‘The Life, Near Death and Rebirth of A Rock Star: Deep Purple & Beyond’

Legendary singer and bassist Glenn Hughes (ex-DEEP PURPLE) has announced that he will be releasing his autobiography in 2010, to be published worldwide by Foruli Publications. The book, co-written with Joel McIver and featuring an introduction by METALLICA’s Lars Ulrich, will be published in a hand signed luxury first edition complete with rare photos and an exclusive 10″ vinyl EP. Pre-orders will be available from next spring.

Further details will be released early in 2010.

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 as yet untitled book 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).
