    BCC on BBC? About time Mr. Glenn “Huge” Hughes goes back to the roots (and the truth) of himself and recover the original “Glenn” we used to love and listen back in the early 90’s. From now on…

    Glenn was quite reserved and funny during the interview. He didn’t call anyone his ‘brother’ and was generally there to talk about a Jim Marshall tribute concert this coming weekend. The presenter actually asked him what was happening with Deep Purple! he said he had left the band and they are still going God bless them and he had no plans at the moment to rejoin . Early on in the programme they were doing an item on headaches with a trailer for Glenn following immediately after (singing ‘Black Country’) and the same presenter said Glenn sounded like he had a head ache..ouch! At BBC breakfast they don’t bother with research !

    I can’t believe all the criticism Glenn gets from so-called Deep Purple fans. What is wrong with any musician appearing on TV to promote themselves and their work? It’s what anyone will do given the opportunity. I understand that some of this stems from his days in Purple and the shift in musical direction the band took, but even then the facts should be considered: Blackmore, Lord and Paice watched Trapeze several times. They knew Glenn’s musical interests, yet they selected him for the band, knowing that.

    And one thing is for sure. You might not like the funkier element to his work, but when fans comment on his lack of talent, as I have read on this site several times, that is simply ludicrous. His bass playing is extremely good and so many other musicians will tell you his voice is phenomenal. The great Andy Fraser said that to me three months ago. There are many musicians whose music doesn’t cut it for me but I wouldn’t criticise their talent, simply because I don’t like the style.

    As I have said before, if you are going to criticise, then at least have the guts to let those who read it know who you are, and what your achievements have been before you start casting critcism upon others, who have more than likely achieved more than you in their lives. 🙂

    His talent is enormous. He is responsible for some truly great things, but I think people grow tired of his whiny diva attitude. He sometimes comes across like an aging actress that just won’t let it go. He sometimes just needs to turn it back a notch or two. [In my humble opinion] If someone attacks his talent, they must have a blind agenda. He is one of the handful of singers that can give me goose flesh with his voice. I assure you Mr. Gillan wishes he could still do it like Glenn does. Those two in their prime were up there on a short list of greats.

    I thought it was great to see Glenn on TV the other day, even if he did have to put up with 2 uneducated presenters who clearly didn’t do their homework on him, nor probably know anything about rock music anyway. I too am amazed when Glenn gets criticised by Purple fans. Yes, I love the Mk 2 line-up more than anything, but I respect anyone who has been in DP. What a privilege that must be! Burn was a fantastic album, the title track is up there as an all-time classic, Stormbringer was different, but I still like it, it showed a different side to the band which wasn’t a bad thing and it gave us Soldier of Fortune among others. You can’t have everything sounding like Speed King or Highway Star all the time! And Glenn’s vocal delivery on “This Time Around” on CTTB is truly awesome. He’s an immensely talented guy & he’s been part of the best rock band in the world, respected guys like Jon, Ritchie and Ian P who recognised that talent all those years ago. Keep on rocking Glenn!

    People criticise Glenn for several things.
    I only feel frustrated by his non stoppable overboard screaming on stage.

    But he appearantly feels different about that.

    Such a shame and waste because without that his work, his voice, etc are unbeatable.
