Black Country Communion

Black Country Communion, originally Black Country until copyright issues forced the addition of Communion, are an English-American rock supergroup featuring Glenn Hughes, Jason Bonham, Derek Sherinian, and Joe Bonamassa.

The band was originally conceived during a concert being held for Guitar Center in November 2009. Joe Bonamassa, who was performing, was asked by Guitar Center to invite several friends along, one of which was former Trapeze and Deep Purple singer/bassist Glenn Hughes. Hughes joined Bonamassa for several songs on stage, which was noticed by renowned producer Kevin Shirley, who had worked with Bonamassa before, on several of his solo albums.

Shirley approached Hughes and Bonamassa with the concept of making a studio album under a band moniker. Not long afterwards, drummer Jason Bonham was recruited into the band by Shirley. The concept of a power trio didn’t satisfy Bonamassa however, so Derek Sherinian, formerly of Dream Theater and Billy Idol’s backing band was asked to join.

Their debut album “Black Country” is now on release with the title track below for your enjoyment.

“Black Country” – Black Country Communion

Nice bass intro followed by Deep Purple/Rainbow/Led Zeppelin by numbers which ain’t neccesarily a bad thing, however, if I want to listen to classic rock then it’s back to the 70’s and the albums of my youth for me.
