Glenn Hughes (DEEP PURPLE, BLACK SABBATH) filmed a video message just prior to attending Ronnie James Dio's (DIO, BLACK SABBATH, HEAVEN & HELL, RAINBOW, ELF) public memorial service, which was held on May 30 at the Hall Of Liberty at Forest Lawn Hollywood Hills in Los Angeles, California.

Hughes was asked to perform at the memorial by Ronnie's wife/manager Wendy Dio. He sang two songs during the service: "Coast To Coast" (one of Ronnie's favourite songs by Glenn), and "Catch The Rainbow" (RAINBOW).
