It's been an unusually rocky road to the completion of Black Country Communion's third album 'Afterglow.' The album's release has been almost overshadowed by a public war of words between guitarist Joe Bonamassa and singer Glenn Hughes, who has publicly said it may be the group's last recording.
Black Country Communion
Black Country Communion singer Glenn Hughes, guitarist Joe Bonamassa, and producer Kevin Shirley have taken to Twitter to discuss their frustrations about the recent announcement and almost immediate cancellation of a one-off show in the U.K., leading to further doubt about the band's future.
'Afterglow,' the new Black Country Communion album scheduled for release on Oct. 30 might be the rock supergroup's final effort. Glenn Hughes (formerly of Deep Purple) tells ABC News that guitarist Joe Bonamassa's solo touring schedule makes it impossible for BCC to tour, and he can't be in a band that only records.
After appearing in a stagnant state earlier this spring, Black Country Communion are now forging ahead with their third studio album. Earlier this year, singer Glenn Hughes stated that he had a wealth of songs ready to go, but there were only rumors at that point of a recording session over the summer.
In a recent interview with 69 Faces Of Rock, vocalist supreme Glenn Hughes talked about his current all-star band, Black Country Communion, and the overriding influence of days gone by on their sound. "Back in the '70s everybody was getting high," he says matter-of-factly. "Lots of women, and lots of drugs, and buzz and so on."
