Two CD live album from 'the Voice Of Rock'. In June 2009, Glenn Hughes was invited to his hometown Bilston, Wolverhampton for a rocking dual-night concert. These two nights, full of his biggest and most legendary hits, led to unforgettable moments and an unbelievable once-in-a-lifetime atmosphere. The touching evening created a powerhouse of intimate, emotional and rocking good memories, as he remembered his friend and former Trapeze bandmember Mel Galley who recently passed away.
THE VOICE OF ROCK collects 16 tracks by Glenn Hughes, a former bass player for Deep Purple, including'Burn', 'Still The Night', 'The Look In Your Eye','Surrender' and 'So Much Love To Give'.
Starting out as the bassist and lead vocalist for English hard rockers Trapeze (which evolved from British soulsters the News) in 1969, Glenn Hughes achieved his greatest fame as the bass player of Deep Purple from 1974 until the group split in 1976. Hughes subsequently reconvened Trapeze (with no records resulting) and issued his solo debut, Play Me Out, in 1978. His next effort, recorded with guitarist Pat Thrall under the name Hughes/Thrall, appeared in 1983, and worked in the supergroup Phenomena in 1985.
Glenn Hughes has always seemed to surround himself with the greatest guitarists and drummers of rock, including Ritchie Blackmore, Tommy Bolin, Ian Paice, Tony Iommi, and Kenny Aronoff. And on his 2006 solo outing, Music for the Divine, the string of strong supporting players remains intact, as Hughes is joined by a pair of current Red Hot Chili Peppers – guitarist John Frusciante and drummer Chad Smith – and an ex-Pepper, Mr. Hollywood himself, Dave Navarro.
