GLENN HUGHES: 'I Love My New Band Both On And Off Stage'

Legendary vocalist/bassist Glenn Hughes (DEEP PURPLE, BLACK SABBATH) has posted the following message on his official web site:

"Just got back last night to LA. I am really looking forward to the Christmas holiday. In my opinion this tour was an extremely vibrant experience. Mark [Mondesir, drums], Anders [Olinder, keyboards] and Jeff [Kollman, guitar] were all complete revelations to me. It has been such a long time since I felt such emotion singing with my band. The groove, the funk... the soul... all extremely passionate and I love my new band both on and off stage. I will have great memories from this tour. For those of you were there, I hope you felt the vibe. The band really inspired me to new heights. The musicianship on stage deeply spoke to me, and I look forward to the next leg of the tour in February."

Hughes' latest solo album, "Music for the Divine", is available now on Frontiers Records. The CD was recorded in Chad Smith's (RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS) house in Los Angeles and again features Smith on drums and longtime Glenn Hughes collaborator JJ Marsh on guitar. Also featured are RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS guitarist John Frusciante and Mark Killian, who has provided the string arrangements and keyboards.
