Glenn Hughes News: Glenn Hughes Says Doug Aldrich Was The Only Man For The Job


.
On Wednesday Glenn Hughes Says Doug Aldrich Was The Only Man For The Job was a top story. Here is the recap: (Classic Rock) Glenn Hughes says Doug Aldrich was the only man for the job when he needed to recruit a guitar player for his solo band. The former Deep Purple, Trapeze, Black Country Communion and California Breed singer hits the road for a UK tour in October, starting at Norwich Waterfront on the 19th. It comes at the tail end of a wider European run.

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.
