Never a finished article

Glenn Hughes in the studio, December 2013; photo courtesy of GlennHughes.comGlenn Hughes recently spoke to GuitCast podcast (even though he’s not exactly known for his guitar playing skills).

On his knee surgery:

I was privately in a wheelchair for a couple weeks at the end of my Asian tour last December, knowing full well when I got home that that I was going to have the surgery done.

Regarding a new album:

I’m gonna go to Copenhagen the last week of June, I’m gonna start making the Glenn Hughes solo album. Normally it takes me a couple of weeks to get that, then I’m mixing so by the end of July I’ll have an album ready to roll.

On the HoF induction ceremony and who will perform there:

We won’t know anything until we get into rehearsals next Thursday, April 7th.

Glenn’s interview starts at around 31:35 into the podcast:

Thanks to Shawn for the info.

    Though Glenn Hughes may not be a guitarist per se; he is an excellent bass guitarist and acoustic guitarist.

    Glenn Hughes is great. No disrespect intended but his bass playing was way more dynamic than RG’S. To hear Ritchie compliment his playing in the new Blackmore DVD is great. I’m going to see him in CA in September but am bummed because I thought Aldrich was going to be on guitar. I hope there is footage from the touring with Aldrich because the trio playing those Purple songs was sooo cool. Would love a DVD of that.

    I do hear the light is green for a Smoke outing. But don’t forget, Glenn, nobody is required to show up to rehearsals. Perhaps you know more you aren’t telling?
