Purchase BCCIV by the Black Country Communion!

Jason Bonham and Glenn Hughes form another new band

California Breed Glenn Hughes Jason Bonham

Black Country Communion was a great group, releasing three albums in four years, hearkening back to the thundering rock of the 1970s. Unfortunately, the group was unable to tour extensively because of conflicting schedules, and a split occurred after the 2012 album Afterglow.

Fortunately, Glenn Hughes and Jason Bonham have decided to forge on with a new trio completed by guitarist/vocalist Andrew Watt, a young guy who grew up on grunge but was also influenced by the classic rock that his dad forced upon him (good job, dad!). The 23-year old and the grizzled vets have formed California Breed, with an album due out in May on Frontiers Records.

Classic Rock Magazine published an article about the new group yesterday. Check it out, and while you’re waiting for the record to drop, fire up some Black Country Communion.

Happy birthday Joe Bonamassa!

Guitarist Joe Bonamassa, who has an excellent solo career on top of his work with Black Country Communion, turns 35 years old today.

Joe was previously in a band called Bloodline with Berry Oakley, Jr., Miles Davis’s son Erin, and Robby Krieger’s son Waylon. Bonamassa was still a teenager when that album was released.
