A band featuring four veteran heavy-hitters of British and American hard rock, Black Country Communion are rooted in an alliance between bassist/vocalist Glenn Hughes (Deep Purple) and blues-rock guitarist Joe Bonamassa. At the suggestion of engineer and producer Kevin Shirley, journeyman drummer Jason Bonham and keyboardist Derek Sherinian (Dream Theater) were invited to join, and both obliged. The quartet recorded its first album during early 2010 and had it issued that September on J&R Adventures. Upon release, it charted in the U.K. Top 20 and the U.S. Top 60.

In 2012 the band released its first concert album, Live Over Europe. « hide
