Glenn Hughes is a Stafford-born bass guitarist and vocalist who has been in various Deep Purple and Black Sabbath line-ups, as well as recording dozens of collaborations including the acclaimed Hughes / Thrall and Hughes / Turner projects and also with Pat Travers, Tony Iommi, Robin George and Keith Emerson.

He has a unique singing style bordering on a falsetto and can hold a note for around 30 seconds (I've seen him do it!). He cites funk and Motown as an influence on his bass-playing.
