Glenn Hughes Speaks Out Over Black Country Communion Controversy

12/26/2012
.
Glenn Hughes of Black Country Communion aimed to "set the record straight" in a new interview with Classic Rock Revisited about the controversy over recent comments he made. Here is an excerpt:

CRR: Let's kill the elephant in the room. You did some interviews that caused a lot of reactions. Glenn: It is none of my business what people say, or write, about me. I am very sensitive. I need to set the record straight today. I know you will not lead me down a dark alley and that is the reason I am doing it.

CRR: Do you regret that this happened and do you regret what you said? Glenn: The only disclaimer I have in this interview, and this goes to all of the Black Country Communion fans out there is this: We have done three albums and one live DVD in two and half years. Ninety percent of the press campaign has been done by me.

I am very happy for Joe and his solo career. Because he is so busy, the band asked me to do the interviews. The promo for the first album went great. The promo for the second album was more difficult because people were talking about evolving in the studio, but they were asking me shouldn't a band evolve on stage.

Most journalists who interview me are Black Country Communion fans and, over time, I have been prodded into the touring question. Yes, I did get frustrated and, yes, I may have said some things that, in hindsight, due to my frustration, I shouldn't have said due to my frustration. Never once did I say anything disrespectful about any of the artists in Black Country Communion, who are of the highest caliber and are my brothers and friends.

I have not done any interviews for several weeks and I have learned that silence is golden. I have learned a lot about myself and the industry. He had a lot more to say, read it here.
