Glenn Hughes Not A Fan Of Millennials Mindset, Guns N' Roses Star Jams with Steel Panther, Vinnie Vincent Invasion Member Speaks Out, moreFormer Deep Purple star Glenn Hughes says working with guitarist Andrew Watt in California Breed showed him that "millennials want all the power and all the money of people who've already got it without working for it." Hughes told the White Line Fever podcast, "It was a very stressful band for me to be in. I was, you know, bamboozled into forming this band with a young man, Andrew Watt - a very talented young man - but it was the wrong move for me. The guy is a millennial. The guy is 25 years old and it was difficult to play with somebody with a different head space to me and Jason not wanting to tour was a difficult thing.Looking back at California Breed, I should never have toured behind that. I should have just released the album and moved back onto my solo work." Read more here.
