Glenn Hughes and his parents
RIP MOM : Sheila Born dec 1, 1928
Passed away Feb 1, 7.15pm UK time 2017
Now with my father William
I was holding your hand at your bedside for 18 hours Mom , and God took you into the light to join our loved ones… Each person in their last breath drops all that they are carrying…
Each breath is a little death that can set us free… words cannot describe how deeply sad I am, but I will do as you wish , and stay on tour and be of service. Losing you & Dad 9 months apart is massively heartbreaking. For those reading this, please reach out to your loved ones to let them know they are loved. #loveistheanswer #musicisthehealer

Our sincerest sympathies from all of us here at THS.

    I was at Reading, and was very appreciative of Glenn’s honesty and touching love for him mum. It was wonderful to share that with you in an atmosphere of love and kindness.
    Well done, Glenn – your mum was, I’m certain, very proud of you.
    Warmest wishes to you and your family.

    Respect, saw Glenn on Sunday at Sub89, awesome show and thinking of his Mum. It must have been very difficult for him. What a true gentleman he is.

    Glenn did this cover of the Gary Moore song ‘Nothing’s the Same’ as a bonus track on his latest album ‘Resonate’. Quite fitting for this sad moment in his life and heart felt….
