Glenn Hughes' autobiography and 80s drug addiction

Help

Former Deep Purple and Black Sabbath artist, Glenn Hughes, is releasing his autobiography Purple And Beyond: Scenes From The Life Of A Rock Star.

The singer, who now is the frontman for Black Country Communion, said the book focuses on his drug addiction in the 1980s.

"I was really into the music and then the drugs and stuff took the music away from me which was the worst part of it," he said

The musician says exploring his past has helped his song development.
