Dave “Gunner” Gunn of the Q95 (94.7 FM WFBQ) radio station in Indianapolis, Indiana earlier this month conducted an interview with bassist/vocalist Glenn Hughes (DEEP PURPLE, TRAPEZE, BLACK SABBATH) and blues rock guitarist/vocalist Joe Bonamassa about BLACK COUNTRY COMMUNION‘s second album, simply entitled “2”. You can now watch the chat below.

The self-titled debut album from BLACK COUNTRY COMMUNION sold 7,100 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 54 on The Billboard 200 chart.
BLACK COUNTRY COMMUNION initially came to fruition when Shirley saw Hughes and Bonamassa join forces on stage in Los Angeles in November 2009 for an explosive performance at Guitar Center‘s King of the Blues event. Shirley then recruited Bonham and Sherinian for the project, which is named after the industrial area in the British Midlands where both Hughes and Bonham were born and raised.
