The spotlight is on Deep Purple this year, as their classic album 'Machine Head' turns 40. The metal pioneers will be saluted by a number of rock icons on the 'Re-Machined - A Tribute to Deep Purple's Machine Head' tribute disc that's due Sept. 25. Former Purple singer Glenn Hughes spoke to Noisecreep about the band's legacy and why he wanted to be part of this project even after serving his tenure in the band.
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."
