cool

thanls for this paul - i thought if glenn sang any sabbath songs they would pick something after ozzy left- this was a bitter disapointment for me when this tour didnt happen and i have to say that if glenn had toured with iommi it would have helped him big time in the usa

Y'know, I've recently revisited this album to try and like it but I still can't get into it. I can always find something to like on every Glenn-related release (and I love both Seventh Star and the Iommi-Hughes Dep Sessions) but this CD just left me cold from the day of release. GH's albums released in the wake of this, Soul Mover and Music for the Divine are so much more satisyfing. I don't want to be mean but I'm glad this tour never took place. We have so much great new music instead and, maybe just maybe, we might get a full SOLO US tour out of it all...

I liked parts of Fused but would have to say I never loved it or played it much so I'm in your boat. Too much mid tempo riffs that all start to blend in together.

WOW, equinox91 and John H,
I'm really surprised by your comments about "Fused."
WAAAAAAAY back in 2000, when I first discovered GH.com
my first post was a comment on how some people like
the soulful-funk side of Glenn; others prefer solid rock.

I can't figure out how you don't think that Glenn singing
"I Go Insane" sounds like anything else (for example)
that he's ever done before. That song is in a class by itself.
Luckily, our boy is also called "The Voice of Smorgasbord"
so there's always something from Column B, if you don't
like what's in Column A.

One more thing about "Fused"...........
We all know that GH gives 100% towards his solo albums.
The same as holds true with his live performances.
But when Glenn walked into the recording studio for "Fused"
he had something EXTRA to prove.......

I first saw Glenn live, at Birch Hill, in Jersey, in March, 2001.
And in between songs he kept talking about "16 years."
I had no clue what he was talking about, and I think that
most of the audience was in the same boat as I was.
LATER ON, I figured out that it was IMPORTANT TO HIM,
that he perform in Jersey to make up for the Meadowlands
show with Sabbath.....which to be kind....had been a disaster.

So........when Glenn did the vocals on "Fused", every note
had something extra - a little bit more emotion - (for want
of a better phrase) to "redeem his reputation."

Even if I weren't a GHCP fan of rock, I can tell that "Fused"
as an album, has a little bit more of an industrial-strength
power, pizazz, or fireworks, than anything else he's ever done.

And because I am a wonderful person, perfect in every way
I WILL NOT be forced to kill you, for not naming any CD with
a track on it named "Grace" as your favorite GH album of all time

PS........ Grace

Trust me Scott, Birch Hill was a fire trap waiting to happen, too.
But it didn't close down as soon as the Voodoo Lounge did.
Both of these places were terrible locations.
Glenn should have ax murdered the booking agent.
Vinny (Vinnis1) went to both the NJ and the NY shows; I only went
to the Jersey show where GH talked about the Meadowlands show.

******************************
Don't wear any socks to BB King's, cause they're gonna' get blown off.
Unfortunately, when Glenn starts singing in June, we GHCPs won't be able
to do anything ahead of time about our brains..........they're gonna' fall out.
Trust me on this one, too.

I was not glad there was no tour. The combination of GH, Tony and Kenny would have been fabulous, plus the chance to hear Dep Sessions and 7th Star live.

i'd much rather have seen Hughes/Iommi tour than Heaven and Hell but thats the way it goes

What is really annoying is that it is another side project of Glenn's where we only get a studio album and no chance to hear the songs live. I'd love it if he dropped in even one song from this into a solo set.

Just got my tickets for the BB King's show. I am EXCITED! Last saw GH at the Birch Hill in March 2001, which remains one of my very favorite gigs ever!

This solo show is much more to my liking than a tour with Tony Iommi. Just my opinion and, before anyone threatens me with physical violence (LOL), please remember that I was never a big Sabbath fan to begin with. So the lure of that collaboration is lost on me. BUT...if a collaboration were to happen with anyone, I would like to see Glenn and ol' DC sing together one last time. Or Pat Thrall. The teaming up with Jimmy Barnes is an interesting idea, too. And with Ken Hensley! Now that's a dream come true as Ken's been my favorite musician since I was 12!
