So, I think we are red hot on Kevin Shirley. It could be a question if the other musicians are U'S' based or not if they have got together in the studio already.

I think there could be members of Chickenfoot. I'd also agree and throw Sykes and Iommi into the mix. I would not rule out Jimmy Page either or possibly Jon Lord, now wouldn't that be something.

Whoever or whatever it is I hope it goes MEGGA for Glenn and he's out playing large sell out venues again, the boy deserves it. Oh and I hope he plays bass as well.

You can just tell me in a private message David. I'm sure that I won't tell any of the others I enjoy reading the posts. I think sometimes not knowing what Glenn is doing is as fun as knowing what he's doing. I was thinking however, that with Dio ill and with ozzy's constant state of uncertainty, it sure might be giving Tony Iommi some extra time to finally pursue a record and a tour w/ Glenn
peace,

Wolfy knows his onions, the mention of Kevin Shirley and the Black Crowes got me thinking, maybe Glenn's goin' down an earthy,bluesy,rock 'n' roll road.

Kevin Shirley had this to say:

Quote:
Hi there - well my post yesterday started an inaccurate internet rumor, which spread like wildfire, even being picked up by the official Gibson site. Many people emailed and I corrected them, but the big guns just had to run with it and wait for the keywords to hit the internet search engines so they'd get traffic to their sites.
There's no supergroup planned with fifty guitarists recording, I'm sorry.
If you believed that, go on and blush. Over my long career I have been very fortunate to work with some of the best in the world, and soon I'm going to record one of the pioneers. That's what's so exciting! But, as I said before, news when I can. The "supergroup" is just a four piece, and we have an exploratory recording session early next year. And that's all. Now, no blogging.... go and get the veggies for Thanksgiving, lay the table, get the kids some ice-cream... and enjoy the holidays with your family. For those of you living outside the U.S., go back to work - you shouldn't be blogging at the office anyway!!!

And whoever the guitar legend ishe's talking about, he'll be recording him in DECEMBER while the supergroup likely involving Glenn is recording in JANUARY.

The supergroup is a four piece , there won't be a bunch of guitarists. I'd like to see Sykes involved in this and I guess there's a chance of that although I have no idea who could be the drummer. Matt Sorum was a good suggestion though since VR seem to be on a hiatus. I doubt anyone from Chickenfoot will be involved.

Ok, Kevin Shirley has said on his site he will be working with one of the pioneres of the guitar world!! in January. It will be a 4 peice supergroup situation.

On Jeff Becks site it has a news headline running saying, "exciting news to be announced soon......

So Glenn, Jeff Beck and who else?????? wow this has really got me thinking, would be great to see Glenn back in the big league where he belongs and get some main stream recognition

my early front runner was John Sykes, but i get the impression from Glenn's twittering[waffling???] that it will be a BIG name. To me that leaves someone like Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck, and another who has just come into my head Dave Navarro, who of course featured on Soul Mover. Let's hope the real deal is as fun as the guesswork!

How is Dave Navarro a big name? Appearing on TV doesn't make you a guitar legend. Jeff Beck would be awesome though. Glenn has always said he'd love to work with Jeff.

On the production end of things, I'd think that "possibly the greatest hard rock producer on the planet" would be someone who's been around for quite a while

Jimmy Page, Matt Sorum, Toni Iommi, Adrain Smith!,(look at the clues) Jon Lord, John Sykes, Phil Collen, who knows but its fun guessing! any other suggestions,

How close are we now David?

..maybe Iommi again with full tour this time,or black Sabbath.

Genesis hmm .....Jeff Beck

So what's the situation with the guessing? So far it seems that Kevin Shirley will be the producer. Glenn on bass & vocals. As for the guitarist, my vote goes to Jeff Beck. Glenn's sudden hiatus with his solo work calls for some major motivation, which also shows in his teaser messages. Correct me if I'm mistaken here with my memory traces, but a man who has made him cry for playing the guitar like no one else and with whom Glenn has wanted to work for a long time now would surely provoke such enthusiasm.

What about the other two then? A drummer would be nice. Anyone got a clue what Mark Mondesir is up to? He has played with both Jeff and Glenn...

Then it could be keys or another guitar, but I've done enough guesswork for now... It's great that something good is constantly happening for GH.

I have to assume that Glenn enjoys reading our posts filled with guesses about his new project, or he wouldn't be teasing the issue as much. Although it's not like we wouldn't be wondering what was going on anyway. I do feel a bit like I'm on a treasure hunt or something like that just looking for another clue. Today I decided that Glenn has already told us who the guitar player is by not telling us. Like others who keep up w/ G. knows, it is no secret how much Papa has said that he would love to be able to do something w/ Jeff Beck. His name is not new to this discussion at all, but my twist is this; Glenn said that he watched the rock-n-roll hall of fame show on HBO the other day. He commented that U2 did well, he thought. BUT, what he DIDN'T say was how much he (obviously should have) enjoyed seeing Jeff Beck play. I think that Glenn purposely did not comment on Jeff's playing because he is trying to be coy about the whole thing. I see through you Glenn Your silence speaks out loudly to your well hidden little secret Don't forget that in absence of any factual things to talk about, we get to paint our own picture sometimes of your life as we see it Happy birthday to Gab I hope that ya'll have a safe and wonderful trip.
peace and love,

3/4 of Heaven & Hell is recuperating from one ailment or another:
  • Tony Iommi for stem cell treatment/surgery on his hand
  • Ronnie James Dio for stomach cancer
  • Vinnie Appice for shoulder surgery
So I think that would take Tony Iommi out of the picture.

Cheers...Todd

agree with you todd, not going to be Tony Iommi. Not sure if it will be Jeff Beck as does he do rock now? I'm not familiar with his stuff over last 10-20 years but thought he was far removed from rock now.

New 'supergroup'

I'd say Glenn is going to collaborate with Jeff Beck produced by Kevin Shirley.

Shirley has been announcing 'big stuff', Beck's website says it's about to announce big news. Glenn is keeping us on our toes with some big news.

It would be really awesome if Stevie Wonder could be the 'ivory tinkler' (I always liked that old Kerrang lingo) on the new record.

But...just as Chickenfoot (Chad Smith) and Them Crooked Vultures (Dave Grohl) they need some contemporary 'hero' to bring it all together....what's the name of that U2 drummer again?

Yep I think its Jeff Beck and agree It would have to be somone like him to stop Glenn continuing down the solo artist road he has been on for a long time now, so it has to be special.

Keith, would love to know your best guess as I think it would be spot on so please reveal!!!!!

Anyway, looks like most of us agree on Beck,Hughes, its just the 2 others we cannot identify. Drummers and keys players, I wonder, Lord and Aldridge maybe!!! having so much fun guessing!!!

Glenn is very excited about this project, and it must be really huge for him to 'give up' his solo career which has been flying recently. Looking forward to whatever it is!

Enjoy your Hawaii trip Glenn!

Jeff Beck is certainly somebody Glenn has said he has always wanted to work with so that would make a lot of sense. There is news afoot with him and also with Kevin Shirley so I think it's fair for us all to assume these 3 beign involved. This is such a fun thread to be be following and it's great to see how everybody is so excited by what is to come! This is sensationalism at it's best - we're all picking up on the slightest clues and reading what we can from them! I wonder what Glenn thinks to all this fuss we are making - he does keep on planting seeds amongst his tweets so I guess he is having just as much fun with this too! I can't wait till the announcement is made - are we all on the right lines? Or just barking up any tree we can see? I'd be very excited for a collaboration with Glenn and Jeff Beck - certainly because I can imagine how much this would mean to Glenn. Exciting times!!!!!!

well, more developments! The "exciting news coming soon" on Jeff Beck's website (that some linked to a possible GH collaboration) is now an announcement of tour dates with Eric Clapton in North America in February - so that doesn't rule Beck out, but makes it less likely...

Glenn's latest tweet "fallen in love with ROCK again"...suggests to me he'll be working with somebody other than Beck (and indeed Bonamassa) as they aren't straight ROCK artists...

So me - I've no idea..Kevin Shirley is a certainty..and big G of course - but the rest of the "supergroup" remains a well kept secret!

I was pleasently surprised to see Glenn tweet about rocking again/still. "Addiction" is still (one of) my favorite record. I loved the more rockin' stuff w/ Iommi, Voodoo Hill, ect. as well. I'm especially happy that he decided to make a rock album instead of the polka one that Grace has been campaining for . With Jeff Beck looking a bit less likely, we may be back at the drawing board for guessing. Maybe we'll get lucky and Gary Moore might decide that he likes to play rock-n-roll again . Isn't there an old story of Glenn and Gary almost playing together until Phil intervened ? The songs they did together on "run for cover" are very solid and still hold up to some of G.'s finest songs, in my humble opinion
peace,

Ha ha - yeah I just saw the Clapton US dates announcement too! So possibly not Jeff Beck now then! But who???? Anybody already mentioned would be awesome in all honesty. I too love Addiction album and it has always been a firm favourite although it's such an emotive, powerful album, it's one I have to listen to in certain frames of mind. Big lover of Run For Cover album too. The Voodoo Hill stuff is awesome - the rock really gets me moving on those albums thats for sure but I also love the funk from the heart material that Glenn has been writing of alte. Moving back into the rock scene I think will be a successful venture for Glenn whoever 'the others' are. Glenn has a very loyal fan base who will follow his every path - if you are a Glenn Hughes fan then you really are a Glenn Hughes fan. The suspense here is boyond massive!!!!!

Kevin Shirley is Joe Bonamassa's longtime producer, so perhaps there's more to Glenn's recent appearance with Bonamassa than we know...? Gary Moore would have to really be on his A-game to meet or surpass what Joe Bonamassa has done in recent years.

Some people are just terribly polka-challenged..................

I don't know, but while everybody is going nuts trying to figure out who
the super-guitarist will be, I can't seem to forget that monumental photograph
of Glenn with Jon Lord a while back, at some charity-music-event.

Back hundreds of years ago, these two weren't, shall we say, each other's best friends.
(Drugs will do that to a friendship, so I've been told.)
But that photograph of GH and JL didn't happen in a vacuum.
Could there have been "a meaningful conversation" between these two rock giants?

Yeah, yeah.
I don't know what I'm talking about ~ it will never happen.
Blah, blah.
Put me down for five dollars, on Jon Lord.
And another five on Tony Iommi.
