Glenn Hughes Performes Solo Acoustic Set At Book Launch

Legendary singer and bassist Glenn Hughes has just released his long-awaited autobiography, "Deep Purple And Beyond: Scenes From The Life Of A Rock Star".

An invite-only launch event for the book was held this past Thursday night (May 12) at Idea Generation Gallery in Shoreditch, London, England. The evening featured a solo acoustic set by Glenn, a preview of the book packages, and the opportunity to meet Glenn, co-author Joel McIver and the team at Foruli.

Glenn's set consisted of the following five songs:

01. Coast To Coast
02. Holy Man

03. I Found A Woman

04. Too Late To Save The World
05. Cold

Check out fan-filmed video footage of the performance below.

The luxury first edition of "Deep Purple And Beyond: Scenes From The Life Of A Rock Star" includes an exclusive 10-inch vinyl EP featuring the following all-new recordings:
 "What Is A Woman's Role?" (Trapeze, written by Hughes) 
 "Holy Man" (Deep Purple, written by Hughes, David Coverdale, Jon Lord) 
 "Dying To Live" (brand new acoustic Glenn Hughes track)

Speaking to FaceCulture about his autobiography, Hughes said, "In the '70s and '80s, I was a very notorious drug addict, I was a very famous cocaine addict. I don't say that to be arrogant, but I was one of the first rock stars to become, 'Oh, Glenn Hughes, he's a cocaine addict.'"
