Glenn Hughes Explains Black Country Communion Decision


(Classic Rock) Glenn Hughes has explained why Black Country Communion never took their preferred name of Black Country despite winning a legal battle over the rights.

The former Deep Purple and Black Sabbath singer formed BCC in 2009 under the name of Black Country. But when a group from Baltimore with the same name objected, Hughes and co were caught up in a legal battle.

With the clock ticking on the release of their self-titled debut album, the band had to pick a name before the legal discussions had been settled. Hughes tells Loudwire: "We were in a law thing with them for maybe 10 weeks and we needed to get the album done and brand it, so I said let's just call the band Black Country Communion.

"Then we bought the name from them. We do own the name Black Country, and we should have called the band Black Country. These fellows from Baltimore were verbally fighting with us and threatening us, saying 'We'll have thousands of our fans follow you.'

"I googled them and they've got seven hits on YouTube. I'm not being disrespectful, they're young guys who wanted to make a buck, and they did make a buck. We basically threw away some money there." Watch the full video segment here.
