'It was 50 years ago, in the summer of 1973, that the BURN album by Deep Purple was written at Clearwell castle in the Forest of Dean Gloucestershire,” reminisces Glenn. “It was recorded in October in Montreux, Switzerland. We all became one in this centuries old castle in the UK countryside, it felt like Deep were a new band, with David (Coverdale) and I as new members, we couldn’t wait to start working on new song. The atmosphere was electric, in such amazing surroundings. All the songs on Burn were written in the crypt/dungeon, underneath the great hall. We worked on a new song every day, and we were in the flow. Musically we would play, and work out ideas, and David and I would come up with vocal melodies that would later have lyrics. I remember it like it was yesterday. As you could imagine, Ritchie Blackmore was in full prankster mode, Jon had warned me, and he rigged my room one night with a speaker that was hidden, and had ghostly voices delivered to my bedside. The title track was the last song to be written. We came back from the pub, and went down into the crypt, and magic happened.”
Concludes Hughes, “It’s time to celebrate BURN, and I’m really looking forward to seeing you.”

"Burn" is the eighth studio album by the English rock band Deep Purple, written and recorded in 1973 and released in February 1974. The album was the first to feature the then-unknown David Coverdale and Glenn Hughes on bass and vocals.

GLENN HUGHES is truly a one-of-a-kind original. No other rock musician has embellished a style that mixes the best elements of hard rock, soul and funk in such a unique way. Even the famous Stevie Wonder once called Hughes his favorite white singer.

GLENN HUGHES already achieved remarkable success in the band Trapeze. In 1973, Hughes joined Deep Purple. He recorded four studio albums with the award-winning supergroup Black Country Communion with guitarist Joe Bonamassa, keyboardist Derek Sherinian (Dream Theater) and drummer Jason Bonham, son of the late Led Zeppelin legend John Bonham. In 2019, Glenn joined The Dead Daises as their lead singer and bassist, recording two albums with them, "Holy Ground" (2021) and "Radiance" (2022). On top of all that, he is an absolutely amazing and very highly regarded solo artist who just shine!
