Joe Bonamassa Speaks Out On Media Feud With Glenn Hughes

(hennemusic) Ahead of the October 30th release of their third album, "Afterglow," members of Black Country Communion continue to battle each other in the press.

Tensions went public early last month when bassist Glenn Hughes dropped a bombshell about the group's future, telling ABC News Radio, "This may be the [band's] last album. I hate to break it to you, but it just may be, because I need to be in a band that tours on a regular basis."

"A lot of this stuff I fell into second-hand you know, I'd read a blog, or I'd read this or I'd read that. I was going, 'Why all of a sudden is it my fault?' Joe Bonamassa tells Music Radar about the situation. "That I'm doing what I said I was going to do for the last three years, and now because somebody changes his mind, that's now my fault? At first, it didn't really faze me. You know, journalists do like to take liberties; they do like to start sh*t. But then it's time and time again, and then I read the Classic Rock article, and it went from slightly annoying to supremely not cool."

"I never would have done that to my friend, Glenn Hughes, no matter how I felt about the situation," Joe continued. "If Glenn Hughes had been offered the Deep Purple reunion Mach III for a two-year world tour, he would've dropped Black Country Communion and put that on hiatus to go do that in a heartbeat. The fact that I tour religiously in the spring, religiously in the fall and do 125 shows you can set your watch to that. And you could have set your watch to that in 2000 or 1999, and you can set your watch to it in 2012." He had a lot more to say.
