Drummer Jason Bonham has revealed to Spinner, that he's working on a new project called BLACK COUNTRY with legendary bassist/vocalist Glenn Hughes (ex-DEEP PURPLE, BLACK SABBATH) and guitarist Joe Bonamassa."I just literally went into the studio last week for two days with one person I'd done an album with before, very quickly, and then the other was a friend of my father's I got to meet later on, Joe Bonamassa and Glenn Hughes, and we're working on a new project with a working title of Black Country," Bonham says. "We just went in with [producer] Kevin Shirley (LED ZEPPELIN, IRON MAIDEN) and played riffs and just jammed for two days. And that's really exciting."
Bonham says the new group, which takes its name from the industrial area in England that he and Hughes come from - is in fact a band. "We're actually recording an album, literally in that process of jamming it out and editing and putting together and going, 'Yeah, that's really cool,'" he says. "Joe just wanted to play guitar so with Glenn on bass and vocals, it's a power trio."
