CALIFORNIA BREED's HUGHES, WATT Interviewed On KLOS 95.5 FM's 'The Heidi & Frank Show' (Video)

CALIFORNIA BREED members Glenn Hughes (bass/vocals; DEEP PURPLE, BLACK SABBATH, BLACK COUNTRY COMMUNION) and Andrew Watt (guitar) were interviewed on yesterday morning's (Friday, May 23) edition of "The Heidi & Frank Show" on KLOS 95.5 FM radio station in Los Angeles, California. You can now watch video footage of their appearance below.

CALIFORNIA BREED, the new band built around the foundation of Hughes, Watt and drummer extraordinaire Jason Bonham, has just released its self-titled debut. The CD was recorded at producer Dave Cobb's (JAMEY JOHNSON, RIVAL SONS, SHOOTER JENNINGS)'s Nashville studio and features equal co-writing credits among the three-man lineup. "It's proper rock," Hughes told Classic Rock magazine, "but at the same time it's very now. Andrew is as influenced by Mick Ronson as he is Jimmy Page." "This kid is amazing," says Bonham. "The first time we met I thought he looked like the white Jimi Hendrix. And he plays in the studio like he's on stage!"

Glenn Hughes, 'The Voice Of Rock', is a true original, a legendary icon whose credits include DEEP PURPLE and guesting with everyone from BLACK SABBATH to EARTH, WIND & FIRE — up to his most recent collaboration in rock supergroup BLACK COUNTRY COMMUNION. No other rock musician has carved such a distinctive style blending the finest elements of hard rock, soul and funk. That astonishing voice is Hughes' calling card.

The legacy of LED ZEPPELIN lives on in Jason Bonham, British drummer and son of ZEP's legendary John Bonham. He has inherited the best of his father's skills while mastering his own distinctive and dynamic technique. Jason has followed his own distinctive path over the years, fronting his own successful outfits like BONHAM, and playing with LED ZEPPELIN, FOREIGNER, HEART and, most recently, movie composer Hans Zimmer.

Andrew Watt is a soulful singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist whose high-energy aggressive style and creative spirit are synonymous with New York City.

Hughes says: "I live in the moment, it's all about NOW. CALIFORNIA BREED is exactly where I live, breathe and where my freak flag flies."
