    The Voice of Rock: Glenn Hughes Concert Review

    A HUGE bucket list concert for me happened Sunday night in Cleveland at House Of Blues.
    The Voice Of Rock Mr. Glenn Hughes!!!
    I’ve been a fan of this man and his work for 19 or 20 years now.
    Unfortunately, he has not toured the US much within that time frame.
    But now he’s coming around more which is wonderful.
    On this tour, he is playing Deep Purple songs that he was involved with (he was a member from 73-76 and co-sings/plays bass on 3 incredible DP albums Burn, Stormbringer, and Come Taste The Band), has sang on so many other albums of his own, as well as albums with Trapeze, Tony Iommi (Black Sabbath), Gary Moore, Hughes/Thrall (Pat Thrall of Pat Travers), even Motley Crue and Quiet Riot, and more recently California Breed and Black Country Communion, and many more.
    This man is one of the best singers you will ever hear in your life.
    He can sing anything and has. Rock, Metal, Blues, Funk, Soul, Christmas Music, you name it.
    Look up his discography.
    And he’s still as great or better now than he’s ever been.
    A phenomenal bassist too, but his voice is off the charts.
    And most importantly, he’s just a great person and very fan friendly.
    He emailed me back one time and has liked several tweets I’ve sent him and has replied to me on some of them (yes it is him).
    I never thought I would see this man in concert but I FINALLY did.
    I’m glad it happened.
    I’ll always be a fan of this guy.
    Two more concerts to go this year, as well as two other non concert events.
    As Glenn says all the time “Music Is The Healer”.
    It certainly is to me.
