Glenn Hughes Sees Mel Galley In California Breed Guitarist

(Classic Rock) California Breed frontman Glenn Hughes says that his young bandmate, the 23-year-old Andrew Watt, is the nearest thing to his late colleague Mel Galley.

Hughes and Galley were bandmates in Trapeze before the guitarist moved on to work with Whitesnake, Phenomena and Cozy Powell. He died of cancer in 2008.

As California Breed prepare for the launch of their self-titled debut album, Hughes tells Tight But Loose: "Andrew was born in 1991, but he sounds like he's from the psychedelic era. He is not really a 70s or 80s guy - his main influence runs from 1968 and then leaps into 1994 with Pearl Jam and Soundgarden.

"I haven't played with a guitar player in that vein since Mel Galley. He was a little nervous at first but he has that New York swagger and he's ambitious." more on this story
