Watch: GLENN HUGHES Joined By JOE BONAMASSA And CHAD SMITH At Beverly Hills Concert

Glenn Hughes was joined by Joe Bonamassa and Chad Smith (RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS) during his performance last night (Friday, September 8) at The Canyon Beverly Hills At The Saban Theatre in Beverly Hills, California. Bonamassa and Smith played the DEEP PURPLE classics “Burn” and “Highway Star” with the former PURPLE bassist/vocalist, with Bonamassa — who plays with Hughes in the long-running BLACK COUNTRY COMMUNION project — also handling guitar duties during another PURPLE classic, “Mistreated”. Fan-filmed video of the concert can be seen below (courtesy of the Brian James YouTube channel).

Glenn kicked off his summer 2023 U.S. tour on August 16 at The Landis in Vineland, New Jersey. Two days later, he teamed up with legendary Swedish guitarist Yngwie Malmsteen for a U.S. co-headlining run.

Hughes, the former bassist, and singer of DEEP PURPLE, known to millions as the “Voice Of Rock”, and Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame inductee, recently launched the “Glenn Hughes Performs Classic Deep Purple Live – Celebrating The 50th Anniversary Of The Album Burn” tour.

Glenn is performing DEEP PURPLE‘s legendary rock album “Burn” and is also playing DEEP PURPLE MKIII and MKIV songs.

Glenn‘s band features Søren Andersen (guitar),Ash Sheehan (drums) and Bob Fridzema (keyboards).

“It was 50 years ago, in the summer of 1973, that the ‘Burn’ album by DEEP PURPLE was written at Clearwell Castle in the Forest of Dean Gloucestershire,” reminisced Glenn. “It was recorded in October in Montreux, Switzerland. We all became one in this centuries old castle in the U.K. countryside, it felt like DEEP were a new band, with David [Coverdale, vocals] and I as new members, we couldn’t wait to start working on new songs. The atmosphere was electric, in such amazing surroundings.

“All the songs on ‘Burn’ were written in the crypt/dungeon, underneath the great hall,” he continued. “We worked on a new song every day, and we were in the flow. Musically we would play, and work out ideas, and David and I would come up with vocal melodies that would later have lyrics. I remember it like it was yesterday.

“As you could imagine, Ritchie Blackmore [guitar] was in full prankster mode, Jon [Lord, keyboards] had warned me, and he rigged my room one night with a speaker that was hidden, and had ghostly voices delivered to my bedside.

“The title track was the last song to be written. We came back from the pub, and went down into the crypt, and magic happened.”

Concluded Hughes: “It’s time to celebrate ‘Burn’, and I’m really looking forward to seeing you.”

“Burn” is the eighth studio album by the English rock band DEEP PURPLE, written and recorded in 1973, and released in February 1974. The album was the first to feature then-unknown Coverdale on vocals and Hughes, from TRAPEZE, on bass and vocals. “Burn” was recorded in Montreux, Switzerland, in November 1973, with the Rolling Stones Mobile Studio. With the addition of Coverdale and Hughes, DEEP PURPLE‘s hard rock sound incorporated elements of soul and funk, which would become much more prominent on the follow-up album, “Stormbringer”.

The phenomenal “Burn” title track started things off at full throttle and challenged the seminal “Highway Star” for the honor of best opener to any DEEP PURPLE album, while showcasing the always-impressive drumming of Ian Paice. The fantastic slow-boiling blues of “Mistreated”‘s greatness qualifies it for the highest echelons of hard rock achievement, and therefore ranks as an essential item in the discography of any self-respecting music fan.

“Burn” hit No. 3 on the U.K. albums chart, No. 9 on the U.S. Billboard 200, and No. 1 in Austria, Denmark, Germany, and Norway.

In 2004 “Burn” was remastered and released with bonus tracks. “Coronarias Redig” was recorded during the “Burn” recording sessions, used only as a B-side for the “Might Just Take Your Life” single in 1974. It appears as a bonus track (in remixed form) on the anniversary edition re-release. The 2004 remix version of “Burn” was later used in “Guitar Hero: Warriors Of Rock”.

In 2005 an unauthorized documentary about the album was produced as part of “The Ultimate Critical Review” series. It featured a brand new interview with Hughes.
