Glenn Hughes Goes Acoustic For Japan

Famed manager Alan Niven, the man who managed Guns n' Roses and Great White to multi-platinum success, is helping to put together a novel charity project to raise funds for victims of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan.

"It’s called Artists Support Japan," says Niven, "and the idea, which began with Graham Thomas, an old friend and former CEO of Saatchi and Saatchi is for artists to record an acoustic song with an iPhone or whatever, something immediate and real and of the moment, and attach a message of support.”

Amongst the artists already committed are Paul Rodgers, Glenn Hughes, Quiet Riot drummer Frankie Banali and Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider.

Check out Hughes' acoustic version of the Hughes/Thrall classic “Coast To Coast” below:
