GLENN HUGHES Working With 'Beautiful' RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS Guitarist On New Solo Album

Legendary vocalist/bassist Glenn Hughes (DEEP PURPLE, BLACK SABBATH) has posted the following message on his official web site:

"I spent the afternoon yesterday with John [Frusciante, RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS guitarist] and Chad [Smith, RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS drummer] at Chad's home. We had a funky good time writing and going over a couple of songs for my [upcoming solo] album. John Frusciante is an absolute one-of-a-kind. His vision and depth amazes me, and like Chad, he is extremely beautiful. Look forward to creating my next adventure in the New Year."
