Glenn Hughes on new Iommi Album

I was just alerted to a new interview with Glenn Hughes over at classicrockrevisited.com. In this interview (conducted by Kevin DuBrow of Quiet Riot, of all people), Glenn had some major praise for the as of yet unnamed album by Tony, which has no release date yet. Check out these choice comments by Glenn..
Kevin: You played me the upcoming, not-yet-released Iommi-Hughes record today. I have to say that for a heavy metal record, it is just fucking huge.
Glenn: We finished it about a month ago with Kenny Aronoff. It is a mammoth, spectacle extravaganza record. It is a huge, huge album. It is classic rock and modern rock with Tony’s guitar sound and Big Daddy’s soulful overtones. It was written in Birmingham in October. Tony and I wrote about 18 songs. We realized we were missing something and we realized it so we brought in Kenny Aronoff. We didn’t want a session guy, instead we wanted someone who would play with us in a live setting. When we started playing with Kenny we knew we had what we wanted. The album was recorded between December 3rd and December the 20th at Monnow Valley in Wales. I think it really is a mammoth record.
Kevin: Will you and Iommi be doing anything live?
Glenn: Tony and I will tour the album properly when we get the right release date and the right tour in front of us. This album is too big to ignore.
Kevin: When is the release date for the album?
Glenn: I have heard the press will be flown into New York and London and have a listening party. It is a big record and when the fans hear it then they will understand why I am making such a big deal out of it. It makes a big statement.

There is plenty more in this interview, so go check it out.
