Glenn Hughes: The Autobiography by : Glenn Hughes : Joel McIver
Vocalist; bassist and songwriter Glenn Hughes is a living; breathing personification of British rock; and the arc of his career and attendant lifestyle make for a compelling story. Starting with the Midlands beat combo Finders Keepers in the 1960s; he formed acclaimed funk-rock band Trapeze in the early 70s before joining Deep Purple at their commercial peak. Flying the world in Starship 1; the band's own Boeing 720 jet; Hughes enthusiastically embraced the rock superstar's lifestyle while playing on three Purple albums; including the classic Burn. When the band split in 1976 Hughes embarked on a breakneck run of solo albums; collaborations and even a brief; chaotic spell fronting Black Sabbath. All of this was accompanied by cocaine psychosis; crack addiction and other excesses; before Hughes survived a clean-up-or-die crisis; and embarked on a reinvigorated solo career enriched by a survivor's wisdom. In his autobiography; Hughes talks us through this whirlwind of a life with unflinching honesty and good humour; taking us right up to date with his triumphant re-emergence in current supergroup Black Country Communion.
“I had a constant fascination with the darkside. It is another world; bordering on insanity; and demonic possession; or what I thought was my own soul-bending personal nirvana. Its good to be back in the middle of the boat; instead of hanging on for dear life in the last life boat.” – Glenn Hughes; April 2011
