Former Deep Purple bassist and vocalist Glenn Hughes has announced he is releasing a new autobiography in 2010, which is yet to be titled. The book will be co-written by Joe McIver, and an introduction is to be written by Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich.
“My autobiography is going to be a literary event,” says Hughes. “ I’ve been working on this book for the last three years and you’ve never read anything like it. It’s the true story of the Voice Of Rock, from my childhood via my career in Trapeze and Deep Purple to my addiction and recovery. I’m now on top of the world as a solo artist and after so many years of sobriety, I can hardly believe that I survived. I spent a million dollars on cocaine and, when you’ve read this book, you won’t believe it either.”
The book will also feature input from some of Hughes’ friends, including David Coverdale, Tony Iommi, Angie Bowie, and John Varvatos.
The book will be published by Foruli Publications, and pre-orders will be available in spring. To keep up to date on its progress, visit Foruli’s site.
