Icon34 Chase Post latest interview

This piece was in the local Cannock paper The Chase Post on Thursday 26th October right before the JBs gig.
This is the first chance i have had to post it - and i still have another piece from the Express and Star to do yet!

Local boy is proud of his roots

Life is sweet for former Deep Purple icon Glenn Hughes.
Not only is he pretty damn pleased with his new album Music for the Divide (yes, they put that! ) he is also delighted to be in one of his most creative periods.

The VOR is still in demand, but so too are his writing skills.

On top of that – he’s coming home, albeit for a whistle-stop visit.

Glenn will be performing at JBs, Dudley on Saturday. It’ll also be a chance to catch up with mum, in Cannock, and some of his old mates who he still keeps in touch with.

And of course, there will be a visit to see his beloved Wolves play.

Among the talented performers he has recently written songs for are American Idol finalist Catherine McPhee.

Glenn has really enjoyed collaborating with RHCPs drummer Chad Smith on his latest album. Glenn sang at his wedding and is god-father to Chad's child.

The dark days of his drink and drugs have long since been left behind. Glenn, aged 54, has lived in the Chad’s child.

He also acts as a responsible employer in the music ‘business’ with his wife.

He admits: “I never thought I would become that part of the establishment. I went off the rails in the late 80’s but I’ve got myself together. I feel driven.” Glenn’s dream to simply become ‘a working musician’ has been far surpassed.

But he remains proud of where he’s from. “I never say I’m from the Black Country, Wolverhampton or Walsall – I say Cannock and spell it out C-a-n-n-o-c-k to people”, he said.

The JBs gig kicks off an eight month tour broken by a vacation in Hawaii in December. Then there are performances in Las Vegas, Australia, Russia and the Netherlands (with Paul Rogers), Spain, Greece and Turkey to name a few.

Glenn has a message to anyone out there with a dream, whether in the music business or not: “Don’t let anyone deter you. No matter how old you are, where you’re from, or what your background is. Walk through the fear.” The latest album also includes a glorious updated version of The Moody blues classic Nights in White Satin which will be played at the concert.

Although Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith collaborated on Glenn’s latest album he will not be at the gig as reported last week.

Wink

I dont know the answers to these questions
This is what was printed so i guess thats what Glenn told them.

Maybe the UK March tour will go back to Europe afterwards?

As for Las Vegas, could that be Hughes Thrall?
Maybe at The Hard Rock Hotel?
Hopefully our local Vegas reporter Todd can find out for us and tell me its while we are over there in March
