Here's a couple of quotes taken from the Forward from Lars Ulrich (Metallica) included in the book...

"Deep Purple has played a huge role in my life. I saw Purple twice with Glenn Hughes. When I saw Glenn up on stage in that white satin suit, with that Fender Precision bass, and the ****in’ mane of hair, he looked like a rock god! He had that aura. I was just ‘Oh my God... this guy is so cool!’"

"At that point, pretty much anything Purple did was godlike... Glenn had become a major, major player in what was going on."

"I first met Glenn in 1996 when Metallica were playing at the NEC in Birmingham... It was really cool to have him and Tony (Iommi) there at the same time. It was exciting. I got my picture taken with them!"
