maybe there is room for DS he finishes his tour with Joe by the time they go to record in Nashville. Andrew Watt is a better fit for GH that Joe ever was. listen to chameleon by AW it could have been written by Glenn.

AW maybe less well known to us older fans but Cody Simpson and bieber fans will all know him!!! this band has great potientail bring it on...

(If you want to see Tony, go to the Hollywood Bowl in L.A. on April 26 )

Andrew Watt has far better showman qualities than Joe ever had. It should be fun watching him and Glenn on stage together It's the fun on stage that makes all the difference, not necessarily a great name or perfection!

Looking forward to Watt/GH/Bonham although it would have been cool to see what GH/Kotzen/Bonham could have come up with too Kotzen has such a knack for melodies and can channel Coverdale CTTB era too. Plus he is a devil on guitar. Hard to beat that combo.

Regardless, I think the trio format is the right way to go.

Why so secret???????? What's the use of this blah blah blah. But big name or no big name, I don't give a **** as long as it is good music: Glenn Hughes' Trapeze (sorry Chuck, but this trio could do a lot of good Trapeze stuff) ( also new edition songs, I hope )

Well...this is the second half of BCC....remember when Van Hagar split and Sammy and Mike went on tour as Other Half? Joe and Derek already visited Finland, now it is Glenn's and Jason's turn...

Album may be very good....but somehow the thrill is gone...and I'm being my normal negative self...

Not worried that any thrill is gone. In fact, I think it will be better than BCC.

Hey David,

Where's the pic of Glenn in rehearsal? Your post is blank!

Do I need a special pair of GH glasses to see it?

I heard Watt & I hope the stuff the band is writing isn't too much

like his stuff! He's ok, but doesn't blow me away! We'll see. I know

if GH is in the band, it will still be good!

David, is it safe to assume that the secret album/project recorded at the end of 2012 is not going to see the light of day?

Was never advertised as sessions only, was spoken of as if it was going to be some major release.
A shame as we all were greatly anticipating the new music.

Advertised etc? Those are your words

Until an official announcement is made about something, it's just another project/session/collaboration etc, that may or may not go somewhere.

Meanwhile, there should be news of new music soon, but we'll all know for sure when we read the official announcement

Well i'm not going to be pedantic David, but the postings form yourself and Glenn did nothing but imply that we would be seeing these sessions officially released.

Maybe we should all pay less attention to what is said as we are often left disappointed.

So it looks like that secret project we have been waiting for, since last year is now dead in the water. That is a great pity as Glenn seemed really enthusiastic about it and there were plenty of heavy hints that it would be something special.

Let's hope the new project/band is the real deal and we see some new music and Glenn on tour in 2014, I am getting withdrawal symptoms and need some new funky rock music.

Avoidable pressure?

I wouldn't bet on an announcement before the new year. I've certainly given up on it. I've followed Glenn since 1973. He's been a huge influence on my music and career. But this year-long protracted 'secrecy' thing is ill-advised, in my opinion. I never heard of Andrew Watt before Glenn flagged him. He may or may not be great, we'll wait and see...but if the new band consists of him, JB and Glenn, then this is a huge amount of expectation put on his shoulders for what I can see as no good reason. Why the secrecy? I don't see how this is different to Glenn working with Chad and Luis Maldonado. The constant teasing is ramping up the fans expectations, and with the best will in the world, I can't see it as anything other than counterproductive. More knowledgeable marketing and management men will probably beg to differ, but I've stopped looking for news now. When the new music's out, we'll see.

Thanks a lot, Kev Moore, I'm not following Glenn as long as you do but I also don't understand this 'secrecy thing' when there's nothing announced at the time it should be. That's putting fans off instead of getting them more excited. Teasing is okay as long as the cookie is presented in time.

But if you don't have a cookie (anymore?), you should tell the waiting puppies whose tongues are hanging out with expectation. The harvest would be understanding instead of growing frustration...

We've been teased about so many projects especially recently that haven't come to fruition that i'm feeling the same as Kev.

All teased up with no place to go!!

Better to keep it under wraps and make sure its a go than have another Hughes Travers or Hughes Thrall II where they announce it, get together and then find one side ( Not GH) can't produce the goods.

JohnH - I take your point, it's a fair one about the Hughes/Thrall follow-up. I just feel the sheer protracted-ness (is that a word?) of this 'under-wraps' deal is counter-productive, which is a shame. It seems that it's down to 'the lawyers' which doesn't surprise me in the least! -It reminds me of the old joke:

"What do you call a hundred lawyers at the bottom of the ocean?"

- "a good start!"
