Although statements have been made to the contrary, Hughes still hopes to be able to perform when Deep Purple is inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on April 8th at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY reports Gary Graff of Billboard.
"All I know is I'm getting the award," Glenn Hughes, who played with the band for three studio albums between 1973-76, tells Billboard. "There's a lot of gossip and innuendo about who's saying what. I'd love to play. I'd love to sing. And so would David," referring to David Coverdale, who was part of Deep Purple's Mk. 3 (third iteration) and Mk. 4 (fourth iteration) lineups with Hughes.
