California Breed Announce Breakup
The bad luck streak that Glenn Hughes is experiencing with his recent run of star-crossed projects has claimed another victim.California BreedBlack Country Communion
As fans may recall, although Bonham stuck around for the recording of California Breed's debut (and presumably final) LP last year, he took himself out of the lineup prior to their tour in support of the record, saying, "I love those guys but it wasn’t going to work for me."
Guitarist Andrew Watt, who stayed in touch with Bonham after the split, has taken pains to let fans know that breaking up the band wasn't his idea. "I put everything I had into this band," he wrote in a Facebook note, adding, "all I can say is I was in it for the long haul...I have a lot of new music for you guys...going to be announcing my plans soon...I cannot tell you how much I appreciate you supporting us, buying our music, coming to our shows."
And while this is the end for California Breed, Watt is already vowing to forge ahead with whatever comes next, promising his followers to "continue the quest to bring rock n roll back to the people that are hungry for it."
Hughes, for his part, hasn't commented directly on the split, although a Jan. 14 Facebook post now seems like it could have been alluding to trouble. "Life is what you make it," reads the note. "Be aware of the 7 deadly sins, for they are all around us ..LOVE ONE ANOTHER."
