It's Official: New Band BLACK COUNTRY To Feature Glenn Hughes, Jason Bonham, Joe Bonamassa

Rock Hard

Posted on Wednesday, January 13, 2010 at 16:55:41 EST

Drummer Jason Bonham has revealed to Spinner, that he's working on a new project called BLACK COUNTRY with legendary bassist/vocalist Glenn Hughes (ex-DEEP PURPLE, BLACK SABBATH) and guitarist Joe Bonamassa.

"I just literally went into the studio last week for two days with one person I'd done an album with before, very quickly, and then the other was a friend of my father's I got to meet later on, Joe Bonamassa and Glenn Hughes, and we're working on a new project with a working title of Black Country," Bonham says. "We just went in with [producer] Kevin Shirley (LED ZEPPELIN, IRON MAIDEN) and played riffs and just jammed for two days. And that's really exciting."

Pretty much what I expected, except I thought this band was supposed to be a four-piece?

Bonham says the new group, which takes its name from the industrial area in England that he and Hughes come from - is in fact a band. "We're actually recording an album, literally in that process of jamming it out and editing and putting together and going, 'Yeah, that's really cool,'" he says. "Joe just wanted to play guitar so with Glenn on bass and vocals, it's a power trio."

What a fantastic name if it's true. I reckon this will work big time but better wait for our man to do his bit methinks.

If this is confirmed by Glenn then Iam real excited, Agreed Keith, this will be very speciel, I was not familiar with Joe's work but having been on "You Tube" his stuff is great, he really is the real deal, vocal harmonies will be great.

Love his playing style, can see this working great with Glenn, Jason will be a great powerhouse behind them ,looking good hope they get all the exposure nessesary to propel the onto the big stages of the world!!!

Love the name, bet David's busy on the new web site as we speak !!!!!!!

I thought this was supposed to be a supergroup!!
No disrespect to Joe, but I'd only ever heard his name on this site!! I thought that the term 'Supergroup' meant that all the band members were pretty much household names. I'm really into all kinds of music and the name Bonamassa means nothing... no CD sales!
Don't get me wrong Glenn always puts out top notch music and I expect this to be a first class release, but selfishly I wanted a BIG name guitarist that would put Glenn back at the top of the charts where he belongs!

This is gonna be another great Glenn Hughes album

Sorry for my negative thoughts... I am looking forward to it though!
