Joe Bonamassa Done With Black Country Communion

03/13/2013
.
(hennemusic) Guitarist Joe Bonamassa says he's done with Black Country Communion, the supergroup that includes bassist/vocalist Glenn Hughes (Deep Purple, Trapeze, Black Sabbath), drummer Jason Bonham (Led Zeppelin), and keyboardist Derek Sherinian (Dream Theater).

"As far as I'm concerned, my involvement is pretty much done, and I'll tell you why: Originally, I did it for the same reasons I did the stuff with Beth Hart and Rock Candy Funk Party it was an excuse to play a different kind of music that I don't get to play normally," Bonamassa tells Premiere Guitar.

"The first two records were a blast the band is fantastic when the Ritalin kicks in, the ADD goes away, and everyone's focused," he continued. "It's a devastatingly good rock band of the early-1970s type, and Glenn is a fantastic singer just one of the best ever.

"So I did it and did a nine-week tour in 2011 that really, by the end of it, wasn't fun for me. It wasn't because I didn't like the cats in the band, but it was just too much too much involved in getting people from place to place and getting the band onstage. Everybody seemed to be very tense, and it made my crew very tense, and it's not the way I like to tour. I run a family I have 21 people who go on the road with me all the time, and if you asked them who was the cause of the least of their problems, they would say me. Unless there was no Diet Coke then it's a huge [expletive] problem, and either I'm going to the supermarket or somebody else is. [laughs]" more on this story
