Photography: Gene Kirkland It is a very sad day today... I have lost a very dear friend.

Ronnie was a true Leader of Heavy Metal... an Icon and a Visionary... there will never be another like him.

Ronnie gave me wisdom, and showed me great compassion when he was in ELF, all those years ago, when we were on tour together in my time in Deep Purple. He was a beautiful Soul, kind, considerate and a wonderful teacher.

Someday I'll be bringing your Microphone up there with me, and we'll sing a song, and share a Vindaloo together...

I'll miss you mate.

Your Pal,
Glenn Hughes

    HUGHES/THRALL 2

    [June 2nd, 2009]

    "I am finally putting the Hughes/Thrall 2 album behind me...it was 10 years ago that we started this production. It was never completed...I want the legacy of the only Album we made, to live on...my own Productions are done on a time scale that are pre-planned on a schedule that works for me, as I grow as an Artist.

    Usually the writing, pre-production, recording, mixing and mastering, takes no longer than 6 months. Pat wanted to produce H/T 2 alone...10 years to finish an album?

    Let's please put this behind us as we move forward with our lives...

    The best is yet to come.

    Love, Faith and Soul...

    YOU ARE NOT ALONE

    [March 6th, 2009] You Are Not Alone

    The "You Are Not Alone" campaign won over millions of people across the world for the cause of the Bulgarian medics who were sentenced to death in Libya. The international humanitarian mission raised public awareness throughout Europe and the United States and made people compassionate with the fate of the Bulgarians.

    You Are Not Alone

    The tricolor ribbons, emblems of the company, became known around the globe. For the first time the campaign launched by The Standart, Darik Radio and bTV private national channel united all the Bulgarians who rose to defend the national cause. The support rally for the nurses brought together over 30,000 in front of the St. Alexander Nevski cathedral in Sofia. Pop and folk singers, eminent artists and public figures of Bulgaria have contributed to the campaign. The best musicians composed the anthem of the campaign - "You Are Not Alone." A petition demanding freedom for the nurses signed by a million of Bulgarians was handed to the authorities in Brussels. Rock legends like George Michael, Glenn Hughes and Bianca Jagger also paid their tribute to the cause.

    Over 8 million Europeans pinned on the emblem of the mission in solidarity with the Bulgarians, among them British PM Tony Blair and president of France Nicolas Sarkozy who personally visited Gaddafi to plea for mercy for the Bulgarians.

    Protesting rallies that condemned the unjust decision of the Libyan court swept the entire Europe. People rose to defend the nurses and the results came soon.

    MUSICIANS INSTITUTE - HOLLYWOOD

    [February 25th, 2007]

    On Feb 15 Glenn gave a clinic for a class of music students at the Musicians Institute in Hollywood, California. Here is what MIT graduate and teacher Christopher Maloney had to say about it: "Glenn Hughes was one of the most entertaining and enlightening performers we've ever had at the Musicians Institute. His stories of his own personal and professional challenges and achievements were inspiring even to the most apathetic student. His vocal and musical talents are well obvious, but it was his charm, frankness and sincerity that really came across to his audience, who rewarded him with a huge standing ovation (a rarity for "school events"). Most impressed were the faculty members who were in attendance, many of whom cancelled their classes and required their students to attend the Glenn Hughes event. The faculty knew the importance of their students hearing someone of Glenn's status, experience and talent. In fact, the instructors were just as blown away by Glenn as the students were. Overall, it was an amazing event, and we would have Glenn come back anytime." Some pictures can be found here.

    MUSIC FOR THE DIVINE - USA RELEASE!

    [January 29th, 2007]

    Glenn Hughes, whose vocal talents have earned the singer the title of “the voice of rock,” has entered the newest phase of his storied career with “Music for the Divine", the vocalist/musician’s latest collaboration with drummer Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers). Set for release January 30th in America on Demolition Records, “Music for the Divine” is a testament to Hughes’ versatility and ability to grow. “I had bought a 1955 Martin acoustic and I hadn’t written on acoustic in a long time,” said Hughes. “This is How I Feel,” “This House,” “Frail,” “The Divine,” and “Valiant Denial” were all the product of Hughes’ acoustic experimentation, but Hughes was also writing with the idea that he wanted to create an album that could be scored with strings. “He’s not stuck in the past,” Smith said. “It’s modern, new music. This album represents the full spectrum of Glenn’s music and it’s a great statement about where he’s at now. It’s very honest.”

    With the love of funk seeded deeply in his soul, Hughes underlined each song with its own funky style. Smith, Hughes’ partner in crime in recent years, acted as a sounding board for Hughes’ demos before the musicians came together with longtime guitarist JJ Marsh to flesh out the tracks. The trio, along with help from Chili Peppers guitarist John Frusciante and Mark Kilian on keys and string arrangements, recorded “Music for the Divine” live at Smith’s Hollywood Hills home.

    “I don’t think I can ever go back to recording any other way,” Hughes said. “Chad is an amazing arranger and he is the most musical drummer that I have ever worked with, and remember that I have worked with some of the greatest drummers.”

    The Hughes/Smith musical relationship dates back to the NAMM show in 2002, where one of Smith sponsors, Sabian, heard about Hughes’ show and suggested that the duo would be a “match made in rhythm heaven.” Smith, who had been a big fan of Hughes’ work in Deep Purple decades before, gladly accepted the offer.

    “Chad came down to my rehearsal and we clicked immediately,” said Hughes. “He sat in on half of my set at the show and has been my wife ever since!”

    “We played the show and it was fantastic,” Smith said. “We hit it off immediately, musically and personally. He comes from a very similar background – soul, funk. It’s a really fun working relationship. Really, it’s just fun playing. I think Glenn us the best singer of his generation. He gets better and stronger. It’s amazing what a gift he has.” “I am extremely grateful that I have been given the gift to be a songwriter,” Hughes said. “It is like a tap has been switched on and it is continually flowing. It has been like this for about three or four years, and I am humbled by it and I don’t take it for granted.” (Mazur PR) [More]

This will be a very special event, as Mr Tsonev is making Glenn an honorary citizen of Kavarna. At 12 noon, Glenn will cut a ribbon in front of a building at the Central City Square which has had a specially commissioned portrait of Glenn painted onto it (other buildings in Kavarna have portraits of Ian Gillan and Ronnie James Dio on them). Glenn will then be presented with the Honourable Sign of Kavarna, making him an honorary citizen of Kavarna. After the ceremony, Glenn will then perform with his band.

The concert will take place in a new hall in the city, and Glenn's show -as it will be the first concert at the new hall - will act as an inauguration for the hall.

    FREEDOM FOR BULGARIAN NURSES IN LIBYA

    Mr Tsonev is doing his best to create awareness for the plight of the Bulgarian nurses still held captive In Libya since 1999.

    NEW ALBUM - MUSIC FOR THE DIVINE

    [March 30th, 2006]

    Here is what Glenn has to say about his new album which is called Music for the Divine: "...the title is very important to me - when you hear the music, you'll understand the meaning. The title speaks to me, as all the previous one's have. Divine is goodness and is a statement to the fans that really understand my music. The album has deep lyrical and spiritual meaning and once again is where I'm at, at the present time. I do not wish to tread into the past and so this album is a major step forward to me. This is my most honest and artistic album. I am very glad to know that things have continued to grow along spiritual lines. Because of the amazing changes in my life, that have happened since 'Soul Mover', it has given me a creative output and encouragement to make this new album. When I was growing up in England, my favourite bands & artists were always growing and morphing and continually reinventing themselves and this CD, I believe, has captured all of those elements. Expect a release date in the second week of June." Click here to be taken to the studio report section.
