Glenn Hughes and Jason Bonham Form New Band
Apart from Hughes and Bonham, the band features 23-year-old singer-guitarist Andrew Watt, and their first album has been produced by Dave Cobb, (Rival Sons). "It's proper rock," says Hughes, "but at the same time it's very now. Andrew is as influenced by Mick Ronson as he is Jimmy Page."
"I grew up listening to all the grunge bands," says Watt, "but my dad always played me The Who, the Stones and Led Zeppelin so that became my music too.
"This kid is amazing," says Bonham. "The first time we met I thought he looked like the white Jimi Hendrix. And he plays in the studio likes he's onstage!"
The three-man line-up got together as California Breed for the first time last year after Hughes was introduced to the newcomer from New York by their mutual friend Julian Lennon. Find out what happened next.
