Glenn Hughes Autobiograhy "Deep Purple & Beyond: Scenes from the Life of a Rock Star" Due In May

Glenn Hughes’ years in Deep Purple epitomised the glamour and excess of 1970s stadium rock. Playing in one of the world's biggest bands, recording classic albums such as "Burn", squiring a long line of film starlets and singers, ploughing through a mountain of cocaine and hanging out w

ith a multitude of stars including David Bowie and the Rolling Stones, Hughes lived a life that

many can only dream of. However, it soon metamorphosed into a nightmare. Glenn's journey through cocaine and crack addiction was a trip few people would never have survived. And after the demise of Deep Purple and disastrous stints with Gary Moore and Black Sabbath, Hughes hit rock bottom.

But this book is a story of redemption. Glenn came back from the gutter a new man and went about reclaiming his position as “The Voice of Rock” - first with the KLF and then as a solo musician with an international fan base, before teaming up this year with Joe Bonamassa and Jason Bonham in Black Country Communion.

The foreword has been written by Lars Ulrich of Metallica. The book also features contributions by legends such as Tony Iommi, David Coverdale, Ozzy Osbourne and Tom Morello. This stunning edition features never before seen photographs from the Hughes family archive and memorabilia from the Deep Purple years and beyond.

THE CO-AUTHOR: Glenn Hughes has written this memoir with Joel McIver, the British author of, amongst others, the bestselling "Justice For All: The Truth About Metallica", first published in 2004 and selling close to 50,000 copies in nine languages since then.
