Glenn Hughes

Visit Artist WebsiteTour InformationPurchase AlbumsView Discography

Born in Cannock on August 21, 1952, Glenn Hughes, also known as “The Voice of Rock”, is a bassist and vocalist who fronted the British funk rock band, Trapeze, in the early 1970s before moving on in 1973 to join forces alongside David Coverdale in the legendary Mk. III & IV line ups of Deep Purple.

After Purple disbanded in 1976, Hughes embarked on a solo career that, though marked by a number of sudden stops and left turns along the way, continued to bear musical fruit with such gems as Play Me Out, (his 1977 solo masterpiece, which also featured former Trapeze/future Judas Priest drummer Dave Holland and Canadian guitarist Pat Travers), and Hughes/Thrall, (the highly acclaimed album he collaborated on with Automatic Man/Pat Travers guitarist, Pat Thrall, in 1982).

The mid-1980s found Hughes moving from one high-profile gig to the next, with albums recorded with bands and artists like Phenomena,(Phenomena and Phenomena II: Dream Runner), Gary Moore (Run For Cover), and Black Sabbath (Seventh Star). By the end of the 1980s, however, an ongoing drug problem had pretty well sidelined Hughes, and it wasn't until the early 1990s that a clean, sober and fully rejuvenated Glenn Hughes returned to the scene in a big way, performing on the world-wide mega hit “America: What Time is Love?” with the KLF, and recording a phenomenal melodic rock masterpiece with former Europe guitarist, John Norum, (Face The Truth), before re-embarking on an international solo career that has kept him busy recording and touring ever since.

Currently, Hughes is on tour for his latest solo effort, Soul Mover, in addition to collaborating, once again, with his longtime friend, Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi on Fused, released in mid 2005.
