Now the barbs are a flying!

I think that it would do good for Glenn to perhaps say something here. There is certainly evidence in certain directions. But without hearing what is really going on we are speculating to some degree.

I am also a big fan of Joe's music. It really is great stuff for those of you that don't know. I do however think that he is/has made a HUGE mistake here if its what it appears to be. I truly think that if they had put in the time and really toured both records that this band would be on a whole other level right now.

There are sure things in life and you have to seize the moment. When you don't you miss it all.

I also believe that Glenn has a plan in place and its not about going backwards to what was before. He has made that clear. So there will be no rehashing something he has done in the past. I also think that it may involve at least one if not more members of BCC. Just a gut feeling here.

Hi Chuck, you're absolutely right : The first trilogy is of course from TRAPEZE, and than PURPLE and after that BCC. Maybe it's now time for HTP 3

Again, we've been told that its not about going back to something he was involved with before. It WILL not be HTP or Hughes Thrall etc.

Thats cool man!! No worries!!

It just seems that there are a lot of people that are longing for Glenn to go back to something he has already done. He has NEVER done that and that is one of the things that makes him so great.

He captures a new vibe but always has that "thing" going throughout it all.

In fact, Glenn did 3 albums with JLT: HTP, HTP2 and The Michael Men Project's Made in Moscow. So we have:

Trapeze: Trapeze, Medusa, You Are The Music...;
Deep Purple: Burn, Stormbringer, Come Taste The Band;
Sabbath&Iommi: Seventh Star, DEP Sessions, Fused;
HTP: HTP, HTP 2, Made in Moscow;
BCC: Black Country, 2, Afterglow;
???: ?, ?, ?

"The rest is in the laps of the gods". Does that mean that if Joe Bonamassa wants to tour they do and if he don't want it, there will be NO tour. It's a pity that this guy seems to think he is the boss of this band. I see it as GLENN's band: He is the driving power. I've seen Joe's tour scedule. There is only space in the secord half of December and in January 2013. So if there will be a tour it will be a short tour.
Maybe BCC minus Joe can do the tour with anonther bluesrock giant: Jimmy Page................................

I think he was more referring to how well the album is received.

Kind of I've done all I can do and am doing all that I can do, now let the chips fall where they may.

I also don't see it as Joe being the boss nor do I think he thinks that. I think its more a case of it being a side gig for him and not one he really wants to spend a whole lot of time with. His solo gig is his thing and he is on tour for most of the year, every year doing that.

As I said yesterday, I have a gut feeling he'll be doing something with at least one member of BCC, if not more than one. Who else will be involved? Your guess is as good as mine

I have guessed, but won't tell

The silence surrounding this matter is in itself quite an achievement, but - as we all surely know - some people find it harder to resist the urge to unzip it, so to speak, which is of course true in several aspects of human behaviour. And these days, with videocameras in every other pocket, even the quickest and most innocent unzipping might be there for all to see and hear in a heartbeat...

In fairness to Joe he has worked his butt of to establish himself over many years!

It's perfectly natural he does not want to lose momentem . It was never HIS plan to form a band. Iam sure it's been quite difficult for him at times. You have to say he has never over plugged the band and has remained consistent that his solo band will always come first.

Respect!

For me I would love BCC to be a full time touriing recording rock band! Let's ensue Afterglow sells well enough to make it a no brainier for Joe!!!

It's quite simple.
Replace Joe with an other guitarplayer.
I always thought that Joe didn't fit in.
On the first one he shared some vocals with Glenn and had his own track. But on the second one he was mainly the guitarplayer.
And to me his guitarwork isn't that spectacular.

It's obvious that Joe's solo career gets his first attention.
Very understandable, but if BCC wants to go to a higher level they have to tour more and that's impossible with Joe.

Well it is for certain that they have hurt themselves by not jumping on the early success of the two albums. They really seemed poised to take it to that higher level and you could just feel the air coming out of it with the lack of live shows.

I have to vehemently disagree with you about Joe though. I've seen him live 8 times now and he is spectacular! He is also a damned good songwriter in his own right and certainly played a big role on both albums. He has two songs on BCC 2, Hadrian's Wall and Ordinary Son so I don't see that either.

All that said, they must tour more and put in the time, and I don't think anyone disagrees with this.

The one they filmed last week?

Well to be honest I didn't expect them to have cameras rolling while they were actually recording...

Hmmm isn't that their European label? If I pre-order, will I get American one without DVD?

Mascot Label Group/Provogue Records is their European label... no doubt a USA release will have a similar limited offering... I'm sure we'll hear all about it in a few days...

Track listing:


Here's a breakdown of the album’s contents in the words of Glenn Hughes:

Quote:
BIG TRAIN
“It’s very quirky and British-sounding. Jason Bonham is an incredible timekeeper. I love the way he provides the engine room on that song.

THIS IS YOUR TIME
“Let’s give Jason Bonham a little more love. He writes his songs on an iPhone whilst driving his car, which is completely nuts. It really helps the groove factor. He emailed me some footage of him playing this song. He wrote the music and I wrote the lyrics. It has a huge chorus, too. Jason is not just a brilliant drummer – he’s a great songwriter.”

MIDNIGHT SUN
“I had my wallet stolen in a Starbucks and arrived late at the studio. When I got there the guys were fooling around with a song that sounds quite a lot like The Who, thanks to those Rabbit Bundrick-style keyboards. I picked up my bass and joined in. It’s quite a romp; there’s a definite vibe of Moon and Entwistle.”

CONFESSOR
“The first album had ‘No Time’, which was slow and groovy. I wrote ‘Confessor’ that way too, but when Jason heard it he insisted upon playing it – in his own words – like his dad would have done. We’re a democratic band and I went along with that. When he turbo-d it up it really came to life.”

CRY FREEDOM
“I sang this one alone originally until Kevin pointed out that the album didn’t have a song with split vocals. Joe and I sing well together. I’ve never had a problem sharing a microphone with other great singers. We really let rip off one another on this one, which has a ZZ Top/Humble Pie kind of a vibe.”

AFTERGLOW
“[At more than six minutes long] it’s an epic song. I was adamant that this album should have a proper title instead of a number. I played it to the band right at the end of sessions – purposely so. When they heard it on acoustic guitar, everybody agreed that it should name the album.”

DANDELION
“I wrote it slower than we recorded it; maybe I had too much coffee that day. Had we done it that way then maybe it would have sounded a bit dirge-like. Jason sets the tempos – he’s got a really good ear for the way that a song should sound.”

THE CIRCLE
“It’s one of my favourites on this record. It gives me the chance to use my ‘breathier’ voice. Kevin asked me to sing it an octave higher than I intended, and it worked. The high voice in the chorus is not my falsetto, it’s my upper register natural voice. I’m singing about being powerless; being in a dreamlike state. People have spoken about my voice and bass playing for so many years, I hope that this time they notice my lyrics because I’m very proud of them.”

COMMON MAN
“That’s another of the songs that came from Jason. When he sang me its melody acapella I could hear myself singing it. It could have been a song from Deep Purple’s ‘Stormbringer’ album; he wrote it for my voice.”

THE GIVER
“When you listen to the end of the song, if people are trying to figure out what key it’s in, I’m playing a capo [a device that raises the pitch of notes] on the fifth fret. When I wrote it, I deliberately held back from completing it because it needed Joe’s input. Kevin helped as well.”

CRAWL
“Some people may know that this song was going to be on ‘BCC2’ but we held it over because there simply wasn’t enough room. To me, it fits this album a lot better. It’s a really aggressive song – it’s dangerous and angry. I love it. It’s a great way to finish the record.”

Thank you David! I can't wait to hear "Afterglow"! It's great that Jason will be very present in this album! He is very good drummer! If his father could see him he would have been very proud!

P.S.- "I wrote it slower than we recorded it. Maybe i had too much coffee that day!"... GH - Always with humor!
