Why Glenn Hughes?


Why Glenn Hughes? He's hardly ever sung! He's only been Coverdale's backup so far.

Que?

In DP he sang lead vocals on at least three tracks, he has released quite an amount of solo albums and sang lead vocals in Trapeze and Black Sabbath and has an uncountable number of sessions where he sang on tracks on many different albums.

Don´t think we were talking DP only, and even there he sang quite a lot lead parts...

Re: Turner, Hughes, Coverdale, Gillan? Who's THE MAN?


I'd have to say that Big Ian will ALWAYS be 'The Man'. Even if his voice isn't what it used to be, that doesn't matter. Purple wouldn't be Purple without his lyrics, his stage presence and his humour.

There could be arguments made for Glenn Hughes as his voice is still as strong if not stronger than his DP days, but what let's him down is all that damned "whoop whooping" and screeching he STILL does. Fine it's hard to ignore his soul influences, but I still find myself cringing at some of the stuff he's done recently, where a perfectly good song ends up being skipped because he goes completely off the rails somewhere along the line.

Coverdale...never had the lyrical prowess of Gillan, and never really did justice to MKII songs live. Great on his own original material though.

Evans: The original and I guess he had to feel his way for much of his time in DP (way too Tom Jones as JL put it). But he could certainly hold a tune and the material MKI did suited him perfectly. The Shield is still a cracking tune.

JLT: Without resorting to bashing, I have never thought he came anywhere close to the previous DP singers either in his vocal ability, his lyric writing or his stage presence. S&M still ranks as THE low point of DP's career IMHO.

You´re quoting yourself with something you have said over 20 years ago? That´s some cool thing I´ve never seen before! emoticon

Actually you'll find the above quote in an episode of Judge Dredd called Punks Rule from 1979, where one of the antagonists had that exact phrase on his helmet emoticon

Interesting.

I never followed Judge Dread. Thanks for sharing that with me! Honestly, in the early 80's I led a band called the "Us" band (not U.S., but Us, as in Us and Them) and that's when I developed the "tag line" of "There is no justice, just Us"!.

However, this only underscore's my other posted quote:

"There is no originality; originality is merely the art of concealing your sources"

Re: Turner, Hughes, Coverdale, Gillan? Who's THE MAN?


...but a truely great artist can easily take an original idea and compliment it to the extent of yet more originality...alot of them have even forgotten where they snipped their ideas,especially if they succeed with them.
Theres a compliment and then theres downright theft.
I remember glancing at the Grammys around a decade ago,and watching Guns And Roses credit Metallica with there award,giving them credit where it was due I suppose.
The previous year Lars was all bent out of shape because Jethro Tull won the Heavy Metal catagory,due to what he called simple"name recognition"...nice to remember them getting snubbed until there was nothing left but to take over to the point of grossly overrated status. emoticon

As far as who's the man goes,well it depends on if you like sheer power vocals with well placed melody,or out of control erratic whooping,or turquise jewelry and a face lift,yelling "suck it" to a mostly male audience,or posing to the tune of coat tailing a seemingly confused image concious guitarist that will not be upstaged or equaled by anyone...or so he believes!
Myself I like to hear them all,but I have a hard time with substitute singers,so I tend to concentrate on the first choice.
Guitar players are a dime a dozen,good or not,but a great singer is much much harder to find,making them more important than people might say.emoticon

Anyone who disagrees can take it with a grain of salt and have a laugh on me!!emoticonemoticonemoticon

"Even if his voice isn't what it used to be, that doesn't matter."

This is exactly contradictory to the topic itself!!! This is what I'm talking about! Constancy and quality over the years!!!! Not ups and downs!

And why Hughes 'screeches and screams and whoops'??? Well, why a dog licks his balls??? Coz HE CAN!

How many others can? Tell Gillan to do Child in Time now. No !@#$... way! Tell Hughes to do what he did 35 years ago. Sure, even better! That's what I'm talking about. Soul, rock, blues, pop, even metal - the man is capable of it all!
 How many others can boast that?!

Re: Turner, Hughes, Coverdale, Gillan? Who's THE MAN?


...sorry about Glenns poor luck then.
He has Morse syndrome,too many styles for one artist to forge any definitive image.
Just when he gets a so called "funk" album out,his manager,promoters and record company demand another rock effort,whats an artist of his talent level to do,when plagued by the one and only 15 minutes of fame he once had...they milk him,while he slipps in his everyother indie release,and sneaks around various other projects.
Hats off to his health,I'll bet he's done enough self abuse over the years to double Gillans,but having only toured not even a fraction of amount of dates...just goes to show that the road alone can take it's toll in extensive doses,partying only adds to the fatigue.
(remember Glenn has only played a total of not too many hundreds of gigs in his life,compared to u kno who)
Recently said in a "fuze" interview.
(saving grace?)

Just because Gillan can't do Child in Time anymore on a regular basis doesn't mean he is a lousy singer. To me Gillan was far more than just the guy who could scream.

Just because Glenn Hughes does his !@#$ better today than he did 30 years ago doesn't mean it's good at all.
