GLENN HUGHES Performs At MUSICIANS INSTITUTE; Photos, Report Available

On February 15, legendary bassist/vocalist Glenn Hughes (DEEP PURPLE, BLACK SABBATH) gave a clinic for a class of music students at the Musicians Institute in Hollywood, California. Here is what MIT graduate and teacher Christopher Maloney had to say about it: "Glenn Hughes was one of the most entertaining and enlightening performers we've ever had at the Musicians Institute. His stories of his own personal and professional challenges and achievements were inspiring even to the most apathetic student. His vocal and musical talents are well obvious, but it was his charm, frankness and sincerity that really came across to his audience, who rewarded him with a huge standing ovation (a rarity for 'school events'). Most impressed were the faculty members who were in attendance, many of whom cancelled their classes and required their students to attend the Glenn Hughes event. The faculty knew the importance of their students hearing someone of Glenn's status, experience and talent. In fact, the instructors were just as blown away by Glenn as the students were. Overall, it was an amazing event, and we would have Glenn come back anytime." Some pictures can be found at this location.

In other news, Hughes has been confirmed as the headliner of this year's Raismes Fest on Saturday, September 8 in Raismes, France. This is a prog/rock/metal open-air festival held in the park of Le Ch√Ęteau de la Princesse d'Arenberg in Raismes, close to the Belgian border of Northern France, and is the only French rock festival north of Paris. As Glenn has not played in France for 6 years, it will be a great opportunity for him to connect with his French fans.
