Black Country Communion, coming to an end?
Sad news possibly on the cards with Black Country Communion, as Glenn Hughes seems to not be a 100%, happy camper!
Seems he's thinking new album 'Afterglow,' may well be the bands last.
He wants to tour the band, big time, but scheduling is clearly tough, due to Joe Bonamassa's popularity and own personal tour dates.
He's said this, in part of an interview with ABC news:
“If I had a magic wand I’d wave it over everybody’s head and go, ‘Hey, you guys, we’re going to go and do 200 shows and we’re going to be a huge rock’n'roll band globally.’”
But he adds: “It’s not gonna happen.”
He’d referred to scheduling problems in the past, saying Bonamassa’s limited availability had left him in charge of main songwriting duties. But that presented its own opportunity.
Hughes explains: “I figured that is this was to be the last album, I needed to come up with some pretty wild and epic tracks. I’m really proud of this album.”

Since 2004 was the last time they've played here, I've given up on expecting any Detroit date ... Shame ...
Really miss my old favourite British rockers ...
