Whenever they call on me I’ll be there, no problem at all. I urge all my musician mates to do the same.
Childline is a counselling service for children and young people who both Hughes and his wife are involved with - and good on both of them.
While they had him, the subject of Black Country Communion came up. Hughes suggested Led Zeppelin fans might just enjoy the show:
Two UK shows are booked for late December and we commence work on the second album on January 10 at the same studio in LA that the Hughes/Thrall album was made...
They’ll feature most of the first album and we might throw in a Led Zeppelin cover and some other things.
According to his Facebook page, Hughes had been very busy writing songs for BCC2, as he's currently calling it. A few weeks ago he noted he played what he had for Kevin Shirley, and it was well received. But he apparently wasn't done there, offering today:
My every wakin' moment is spent workin' on new BCC songs here in Brazil... I have no choice... the tap has been turned on... I am grateful... GH
It sounds like it will be a good 2011 for Black Country Communion.
