Black Country Communion is an Anglo/American rock supergroup featuring vocalist/bassist Glenn Hughes (Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Trapeze), drummer Jason 'Bonzo' Bonham (Led Zeppelin), keyboardist Derek Sherinian (Dream Theater) and blues rock guitarist Joe Bonamassa. This is a track from their second album 2
, which was produced by Kevin Shirley. Hughes explained to Musicradar.com
how the band collaborated on this song: "This is one that Joseph had started the day he came to the studio. He had the acoustic bits, and I added my bass line. The whole thing came together very quickly, but then, of course, what doesn't happen fast with this band?
If I had my druthers, Joe would be singing more in this group, but he wants me to sing and he wants to just play. But I'll say this, and I want everybody to hear me now: I. Love. Joe. Bonamassa's. Voice. There you go. I love his voice, and I wish he'd sing more.
Harmonizing with him, as we do on this track, was sheer bliss. And thank you, Kevin, for having us put the 12-string in the pre-chorus and the chorus. It's very Zeppelin-y, but we're not Zeppelin. We've just taken a little leaf from the page with the 12-string and the Bonzo and what have you – that's it, really. We're celebrating, if you will."
