Making Metal Like Making A Meal

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Music is food for the soul, so maybe it makes sense to compare making a record to going to a restaurant.

That’s how former Deep Purple bassist Glenn Hughes compares his collaboration with former Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi.

The two worked together back in 1996 on a CD that was recently released called The 1996 DEP Sessions and are collaborating on an upcoming CD, Fused, set for release in July.

Hughes says the 1996 session was “the appetizer” and calls the new album, “the entree” and looks forward to the upcoming tour as “the dessert.”

But the Iommi project isn’t the only item on Hughes’ plate. He’s just released a solo CD, Soul Mover, that he considers to be one of his best because, as he puts it, “I didn’t give myself three weeks to write and produce it.”

He says the biggest compliment he has gotten for the new record has been from friends who say they need four or five listens to get into it.
