California Breed: more touring or new album 2015?
I'm wondering, will California Breed do more touring in 2015 or will they record a new album (with Joey on drums?). Or maybe is this band finished and will GLENN go solo again? What do you think, my fellow GLENN fans?

chutsler Jan-04-2015 2:41 PM

Willem, I'm thinking Glenn will go the 'solo' path once again.....

willem Jan-05-2015 3:03 AM

Chuck, I also think he will go SOLO (with band) again. It's interesting to know what the fans on this forum think. California Breed or solo. And there is another question. What do you prefer ;)

chutsler Jan-05-2015 4:07 PM

I prefer Glenn in a group....and definitely as 'front man' w/bass......i.e. TRAPEZE!!! :D

jerklund Jan-07-2015 11:37 PM

I really hope he keeps California Breed going and wish he and Andrew would write another album - possibly with Jason in drums, Joey if Bonham is not available... CB is also good name for his solo band (with AW)... :)

:bouncer: :bouncer: :bouncer: :bouncer:

...I really hope he doesn't spend whole year doing Kings of Chaos or secret recording sessions that never see the light of day... like STP thing.

Wishful thinking, Chuck, but unfortunately no longer possible.

willem Jan-09-2015 12:40 AM

I personally like California Breed a lot. It's one of my favourite GLENN records. So I would like it as they will record a second album. I hope (wish) with Jason, as he is one of the best drummers in the world. But Joey is also a very good replacement. Solo with band is also a good option: I prefer more the rock sound than the funk sound (I know Glenn will always have some funk in the rock and I like that).

Kings if Chaos: only interesting for touring.

So, Hopefully CALIFORNIA BREED II with also a new tour :thumbsup:

Yvonne, unfortuately I know it's no longer possible... miss Mel... but I'd rather see Glenn in that kind of a 'format' then 'solo'... but... that's just me! :D

no more CaliBreed... :confused:

These is weirdness in these posts on Twitter and Facebook. Not too fan friendly or informative.
Just a blunt message?

Makes me wonder... is it true ? :huh:

Andrew Watt statement on Facebook :


To the California Breed fans here...I put everything I had into this band...all I can say is I was in it for the long hall...I have a lot of new music for you guys...going to be announcing my plans soon...I cannot tell you how much I appreciate you supporting us, buying our music, coming to our shows...this is not the is truly the beginning...cannot wait to continue the quest to bring rock n roll back to the people that are hungry for it...what an amazing learning experience for me here and introduction to an amazing world of people and fans that share love for the same thing.
Andrew Watt

JohnH Jan-15-2015 6:16 PM

Good band name but no didn't like the graphics or the logo or the tshirt. HTP was the best looking logo!

jerklund Jan-15-2015 10:36 PM

Now I know how the 80's Glenn Hughes fans felt when band after band fell apart...or Glenn was thrown out... wait a minute I was 80's fan. How many times I've gone through this? A fan inside me just died one more time... perhaps the last time.

T :(

gribban Jan-16-2015 1:13 AM

Cant say im sorry, its open up to new Music. Iommi&huges one more time :bow:

strat335 Jan-16-2015 5:28 AM

Glenn will come out swinging, get ready for something great.

jerklund Jan-18-2015 10:39 PM

I'm quite tired of "expecting the unexpected" and then finding disappointment... of course every failure is a new opportunity but... never mind... I'm out.

For us the fans Glenn is a big rockstar and the most gifted muscian ever. But i'm afraid there is no big audience for Glenn without famous friends to work with. I saw Glenn so many times live and Always in small clubs with a poor turn out (Holland, belgium, germany). If Glenn made the choice to make only real rock music like he's doing now 2 decades ago he would be massive at this moment. His music was a bit to diverse to build a bigger fanbase then he has at this moment. Btw... i'm shure if the CB tour would be a selling suc6 that they would continue even without Jason.

willem Jan-23-2015 11:04 AM

California Breed did it pretty good in a lot of charts in UK and Europe. It is a amazing good album. After Jason left it seemed that there was less interest in the band in Europe. They were originally booked in venues with a capacity around 1500-2000. After Jason left they changed some venues to smaller clubs, capacity 900. I can understand it, because CB was a band with two famous names in hardrock: Hughes and Bonham jr. For a lot of fans it was a huge disappointment when Jason left. Though Joey Castillo, drum-monster, did a fantastic job on the live shows. I've been to the show in Koln and it was one of the best shows in the last years, I've seen :thumbsup:

Now I'm ready for a new interesting and adventurous chapter in Glenn Hughes music. Glenn, I wish you lot's of luck and above all a good health.

God bless ya, cheers,

galleyfan Jan-24-2015 12:59 PM

Can't say I am upset about CB breaking up! The debut was ok but not as good as the BCC albums IMHO! Wish Glenn would do a melodic rock album with Norum, Sykes, Thrall and others! :cool: Watt would have left soon anyways! It would've been a stepping stone for him. Hope he does something good soon! :thumbsup:

JohnH Jan-25-2015 11:34 PM

I'd just woke up and was caught off guard so I didn't have a chance to talk much with Glenn. I'd like to see more melodic Hughes Thrall style vocals also seen on the solo albums such as TWII and Songs in the Key of Rock, which had a good mix of full throttle and melodic vocals. I'm with Daniel. Whatever Glenn does it's always different so bring it on Glenn!

Kev Moore Jan-29-2015 5:21 AM

The Honourable Thing
I think Glenn did the best he could with a bad situation. The album was out there, and he had to knuckle down and tour it, which he did, admirably. He honoured commitments, and certainly gave Andrew Watt his window to the world. It's not his greatest album, but it was a brave one, and it's got some killers on it, including 'All fall down' which I consider to be one of the greatest songs he's ever written. Nothing is wasted here, this is yet another colour in Glenn's kaleidoscopic career. Would that other artists were so eclectic and unpredictable!

Paul J Jan-29-2015 11:42 AM

I agree Kev. It's not my favourite style but All Falls Down is a classic. I like Strong too. I'd like a more Soul Mover style album mixed with HTP style. Soul Mover was the perfect mix of styles, the rock with the funk, soul, pop elements with great songs and great performances.

Marc Fevre Jan-29-2015 5:34 PM

Given that a major raison d'Ítre behind California Breed's genesis was for Glenn and Jason to finally have a band that they could tour together, I think Bonham's departure pretty much killed the whole thing; in essence the band was more or less DOA by the opening day of their tour.

They bravely made a go of it with Joey Castillo but, when even he couldn't commit to all of the band's gigs, (the band's drum tech played in his stead), things became somewhat farcical.

Like some others here, I had a hard time coming to terms with the album at first, but I really came to like it, and I have to say that the material really shone when played live - irrespective of who was behind the kit.

Seeing the effort Glenn and Andrew put into bringing the songs to life onstage, I found myself hoping that they might find a viable way forward, but in talking to Glenn I know that even now "new things are in the pipe", so 2015 will surely bear new fruit for us all to enjoy.

In the meantime, California Breed joins a proud collection of work in Glenn's catalog as a whole, taking a deserved place alongside other notable short term endeavors like Hughes/Thrall, Face the Truth and the albums that Glenn recorded with Tony Iommi.

Goodbye CB, hello to the future...

tony g Feb-09-2015 10:21 AM

saw glenn mention this on facebook but since my computer is down i've had a hard time responding - unless jason had a financial problem - which would be the only valid excuse i can think of - to make and album and then watch tickets be sold and then drop out - that's coldblooded
