Hughes is not keeping up with new music

Glenn Hughes, promo photo 2010A small town newspaper from Michigan has an interview with Glenn Hughes on the occasion of his gig later this month.

The Enquirer: Matt Hires asks, “what’s the last album you listened to?”

Hughes: I have to be honest with you. I’m listening to my album right now because I’m mastering it.

That’s OK.

I need you to know I’m a fan of other people’s work but I can’t lie to you. I’m sequencing my album this week.

Other than that, I’d probably say outside of my work, the last album I listened to would have been Steely Dan.

Are you keeping up with newer bands?

It’s a difficult question for me because I don’t really know what is going on in the music world other than what I’m doing. I read magazines and I read up on stuff but I don’t really listen to radio.

If somebody said to me, ‘have you checked out this band,’ I’ll go, ‘no,’ and I’ll write it down, and I’ll go home and I will listen to it. But I haven’t heard anything that’s blown my mind in a while.

    Is there anybody in the Music biz that Glenn has not met and is a total friend or even family with???? Geez….

    Well, I will be in Kentucky on August 24th, 2 days before my BD, seeing the “Voice of Rock”. I wonder, am I somebody he would say he knows also???? He knows EVERYBODY!

    Looking forward to the show and one thing I noticed he didn’t mention. BCC was supposed to be back in action. He made mention in a previous interview that BCC would be his LAST BAND. WTF Glenn? Is it already over? I find it hard to believe you would not make reference to it if it was still a GO.

    Glenn, we ready to see you in Kentucky on 24th. We are coming from Alabama just for the show.
    Don’t pay attention to comments about “new music” because there is none!
    Keep up the great work. Only very few left, to remind us what music really is..
    My regards to Mr. exceptional, Doug Aldridge.
