Glenn Hughes To Mark Anniversary Of Friends Death With Special Show
Hughes and three other crewmen were originally suspected of murder and spent a night in jail, before authorities released them. The following night, Purple abandoned their second of two Jakarta shows after heavy-handed police officers began assaulting members of the audience.
Hughes recalled last year: "That sh*t was flying - we were in a time bomb in the midst of war that had just started in the country. All of us were lucky to escape alive."
Now he tells Metal Shock Finland: "40 years after the death, I'm going to play that city again, to commemorate the loss of my friend, and go to a place I could never go to.
"They threw me in jail for murder and they let me out. We had to pay money to get out. It was a horrible event." Read more here.
