For those that missed it in the earlier link... here's the short segment from last week's Hawaiian radio interview where stuttering John Joe was caught short when it came to a question about BCC - guess this latest installment was his way of correcting that sorry performance

Phew I can see both points of view here. I think Joe has been a little sensitive and Glenn has probably overstated a number of points in relation to the songwriting of Afterglow and perhaps the touring issue.

As I have said here before I hope a compromise can be found to allow at some point a few shows to take place probably in 2014 now !

I believe Glenn will be on a major tour anyway in 2013 with someone else and I guess Joe knows this to!!!!!

Lets see what plays out here but Iam hopefully and gratefull BCC rule !

Uufff... What an uncomfortable read, that one! Why bother hanging on to a wish "to hash this thing out" in private, when you can vent it out like that in public. I guess Joe won't be called to join the Messengers of Peace by the UN anytime soon...

...or maybe he will, since on his own forum considerable efforts are taken to keep the discussions moderate:

http://forum.jbonamassa.com/viewtopic.php?id=22605

http://forum.jbonamassa.com/viewtopic.php?id=22771

On a more positive note, glad to hear he's "particularly proud of this facet of [his] career".

It's amazing that Joe suddenly remembers Jason and Derek. One must not forget that those two play a few gigs here and a few gigs there every year, which can't be very fulfilling for any professional musician. Unless you're 95 and need to tour with an oxygen tent...

I got the impression that both would love to play in a real band with regular touring. And show me one artist who doesn't want to have success and a piece of the cake. Are Jason and Derek not entitled to that? Because of the ego of another person?

And I wonder what Joe means when he says HE has to book theatres three years in advance?

...just to clear that up... I think he's been pretty up front about that, as can be evidenced by the credits in the CD booklet... he's the primary lyrics writer on all but two songs... and a good chunk of the music too

...there was an interview - probably in YouTube - where Glenn was praising Jason's ability to write songs...I think Glenn gives credit to the others too...and is right when he says that Joe doesn't have time to write...and I feel that that might have hurt Joe the most...truth hurts...but sometimes that's for good...

...Anyway...could someone give some information on Glenn's NEW band...? Pretty please - Bambi eyes... ?

Maybe they should simply do a Chickenfoot, find a replacement for Bonamassa and hit the road.

Still I'm more curious about Glenn's new band, I have to say, although I do look forward to Afterglow.

I feel kinda sad for Jason and Derek...

....and I can't understand why Glenn couldn't release now solo album...tour that (and the new superb secret thing)...and then record BCC3 (if Joe was available)...Jason and Derek could have played in Glenn's band...

...anyway this kind of reminds me of what happened after Iommi's Fused...there was talk about touring...but when you took a look at Glenn's (and Black Sabbath's) touring schedules it was obvious to see that there was no place for yet another tour in their calenders.

Jason Bonham on Classic Rock:

Quote:
Glenn, myself and Derek Sherinian, we’d love to tour. Maybe we’ll figure out some way to do it. Who knows? I just hope we can work something out

Anyway, all this is turning like a a soap ....

I am very happy to finally have Jason pronounced. I think now it is clear that Joe is only not interested at the moment in BCC (I'm not criticizing him negatively, but the fact is, and he has his reasons). The output for this problem is obvious to find an excellent guitarist to replace Joe (very difficult thing for me, I would not want to see a virtuoso without feeling in the band) and make the tour as desired by the rest of the band and the fans .
I'm sorry to say this but I do not like to see Glenn starting another band, starting from zero again, 'cause until the BCC is wonderful and has tremendous potential to be the best band of all time (for me it already is).
Glenn Please, KEEP ALIVE THE BCC!!!!

Another statement from Jason:

Quote:
It's just something I was a little upset about, to say the least. Otherwise I would've said, 'Let's hold off the third album until we can tour.' But hopefully we can address the situation and maybe we can regroup at some point next year and tour and get it all back.”

“I always knew Joe was gonna be busy. I always knew that. Joe is a very successful solo artist. But..we got to a certain point with the three albums now...(that) it's a shame it won't be touring.

It's too bad John Norum is tied up with Europe, otherwise he would have been a great replacement.

A replacement would be an excellent idea. Imagine next year...a double-bill tour with a re-vamped BCC & Glenn's new band! Ha!

If Joe is not in the band it will not be the same!
Even I am too angry about the end of the best band of this century I must to say that without Joe BCC will be simply other band.
And none of the band will not be willing to replace him.

So... The new secret project of Glenn sounds great!

Of course - who would want to tour with BCC and split the profit with three others when you can sell VIP tickets for 1500 GBP for four gigs?

I'll be disappointed for Glenn, because he obviously has been enjoying the critical success its brought him....

Aspects of this situation remind me of a saying that goes something like "Never make a deal with someone who has nothing to lose." Sounds like some of the bandmembers felt they had nothing to lose by not proceeding with BCC. That's why in poker everyone antes the same amount...a bit harder to do with careers.

Ha,ha ..........love it when Gabi comes up to 'encourage' the interview to end
Glenn certainly is/has always been the Voice of Rock & now the (sole, positive) 'Voice of Black Country Communion' .
Do hope Glenn manages to enjoy some of his evenings out without being constantly bombarded with media trying to get a quote that can be misconstrued

It's got to be wearing constantly having to be on your guard about this sort of thing. ( even for Joe B, I suppose) - but I thought Glenn said it all, when he said how much he loved the band and was passionate about it, and of course it will frustrate him when such a marvellous album (and it's growing on me more and more each day - shoulda been called 'afterGROW!) is just 'out there' with no band gigging its superb collection of songs. Ah well, we never got three albums out of Blind Faith did we?

Very nice interview! I like the way Glenn seems to be able to talk a bit more relaxed again. The last interviews he was hardly smiling and didn't seem to feel very comfortable. I thought he looked hurt and very fragile. Now he's joking again and enjoying life...good!

And yes, I like that part where Gabi walks up as well
But who's that long haired guy who walks up before and then turns back again. Funny bugger...
