GLENN HUGHES Doesn't See BLACK COUNTRY COMMUNION Returning To Studio Before 2020

In a brand new interview with Midlands Metalheads Radio, Glenn Hughes spoke about the possibility of more live performances from BLACK COUNTRY COMMUNION, the band he formed with drummer Jason Bonham (LED ZEPPELIN), guitarist Joe Bonamassa and keyboardist Derek Sherinian (DREAM THEATER, ALICE COOPER, BILLY IDOL).

“When we got back together about 18 months ago, we decided to make another record and do a couple of shows,” Glenn said (hear audio below). “But that isn’t going to quench my thirst. So what I’m doing now, as you can see, is I’m filling my calendar with things I can actually really confirm.

“Would I like to do BLACK COUNTRY shows? Of course I would,” he continued. “It’s a band that I formed with Joe, it’s a band that we are partners in together; we are the writers and we are the guys that bring it to people. But what I don’t do anymore, brother, is I don’t get upset if things don’t go the way I think they should go, because I’m just so busy doing other things.

BLACK COUNTRY COMMUNION is one of my favorite bands I’ve ever been in. It is a band that Joe and I lead very happily, but we just have to wait and see what happens.’

Asked if BLACK COUNTRY COMMUNION is a project that he and the other members of the band come back to when their schedules align, Glenn said: “That’s exactly true. We were supposed to go in the studio next year. That will not happen now, because of my schedule being very hectic. But you never know with Joe and I, because we get together at my home — that’s where we do all the work, at my house — and things change. But I wouldn’t per se see anything happening… I was on Planet Rock last week talking about a possible this or possible that, but the fact of the matter is you just never know. But I think 2020 would look like the window will open.”

Hughes went on to say that he will spend most of his time in the coming months nurturing his solo career, including continuing his “Classic Deep Purple Live” tour during which he is playing a set consisting exclusively of DEEP PURPLE material. “Well, I have to, because you know how old I am, and Joe‘s 22 years younger than me,” he said. “So he’s got a lot of time. And I look at my mate Mick Jagger — he’s 75 now — and I’m thinking, ‘He’s still doing it.’ A lot of my friends didn’t make it, did they? A lot of my friends aren’t here talking to you. But I’m one of those guys that seems to work more now than I did 20 years ago. So all I’m trying to say is as long as I’m breathing and kicking and screaming, I’m just gonna be out there working, working, working. But I get a chance now to choose what I want to do. When I worked with [Joe] Satriani and Chad Smith, that was a great thing. Joe [Satriani] wants to also make [another] record with me — a singing record — so that may happen in 2020 as well… I’m not gonna slow down. I’ve got a clean bill of health from my doctors. I’m in great form, in great shape, spiritually and mentally.”

Bonham recently told the “Iron City Rocks” podcast that BLACK COUNTRY COMMUNION was planning to enter the studio in January to begin recording its fifth album. The disc was supposed to be the follow-up to “BCCIV”, which was released last September and marked BLACK COUNTRY COMMUNION‘s first studio effort since 2013’s “Afterglow”.

Just like its three predecessors, “BCCIV” was overseen by Kevin Shirley, who originally had the idea of putting Hughes and Bonamassa in a band after seeing them jamming together onstage in Los Angeles back in November 2009.

BLACK COUNTRY COMMUNION played two exclusive concerts in the U.K. in January.
