Recording with Glenn Hughes and Chad Smith in Copenhagen

Well I just got back from spending 2 and half weeks in Copenhagen Denmark recording with Glenn Hughes on his first solo album in 8 years. What an amazing time. A time I’ll never forget :-) Myself, Glenn, guitarist Soren Anderson, drummer Pontus Englebert and special guest Chad Smith really worked in some kind of cosmic harmony and produced what I think will be one of Glenn’s best albums.

My rig was a great Hammond B2 with the TREK 2 percussion and reverb installed. We ran it through a beautiful Leslie 251 and also a Marshall combo for the nasty distorted and in your face organ sounds. Lots of organ and organ solos. I also used an original Mellotron with the Flute/Strings/Cello tape installed. WOW!!! That was a serious treat. We tripled tracked every mellotron part and it sounds simply gorgeous. I also flew my Hohner D6 Castlebar Whammy Clavinet over and it got used an absolute heap. In the tracks it doubles a lot of the guitar parts and riffs. There’s also a solo in there. I reckon most people will not even realise its a clavinet. But I reckon you guys will recognise it :-)

Getting to play with Chad smith was an honour. He seriously came in and pumped us full of energy and vibe which was perfect for the tracks we recorded with him. Then I got to ride with him to Roskilde festival where he was playing with he Red Hot Chilli Peppers. Got the serious VIP treatment that night.
Lastly it was a dream to record this album with Glenn. He really understood me and what I do and wanted all of that on the album. His songwriting, singing and bass playing on this album is simply incredible and I reckon it should do really well I already miss the guys but it’s great to be back home with the family. I’ll see them all again when we tour the album in Europe Nov/Dec.
