Glenn Hughes Says Doug Aldrich Was The Only Man For The Job
Hughes' longstanding drummer Pontus Engborg is onboard for the jaunt, and the vocalist was thrilled to secure ex-Whitesnake axeman Aldrich to replace Soren Andersen.
As he releases the first image of the lineup, Hughes tells TeamRock: "I felt it was time for me to start touring with my solo band. I called Pontus and Soren, but Soren had made a contractual commitment to do an autumn tour in Scandinavia, so I had to find a replacement.
"There was only one man on my mind - Doug Aldrich. I've known Doug from his time with Ronnie Dio, and of course Whitesnake. Doug played with me on a couple of Purple songs at a festival the night before Ronnie passed away. We had great chemistry and talked about playing together again." Read more here.
