This is outtakes from a radio rockumentary with Glenn Hughes was made before his performance at Rock the Boat in Oslo in 2006. Glenn talks about how Deep Purple approached him while he was with Trapeze and that he thought is was going to be the lead vocalist in the first place. He also shares some insights about recording Deep Purple’s Burn album and playing the legendary Califonia Jam gig. Hear about how his first collaboration with Tony Iommi ended with a fist fight and a broken nose, and why the collaboration with Joe Lynn Turner came to an end.

    Stig is the founder and the president of Metal Express Radio, based out of Oslo, Norway. He has been around doing Metal radio since the mid-eighties. In fact, running Metal Express Radio takes almost all of his time. Is it worth it...? "Most times, yes," Stig says. "My philosophy is to try to give all Metal releases a fair chance to get promoted in one way or another. As you can imagine, it can be an arduous task to listen through about 20 albums every week! Still, I know we have the best METAL dedicated radio on this planet, and that is a reward in and of itself. I hope one day the whole Metal community can and will make listening to Metal Express Radio part of their daily rituals! Yeah, right..."
