Biography

(2001 – present)

Hughes Turner Project (HTP) was a musical project formed in the 2001 by bassist/vocalist Glenn Hughes (formerly of Deep Purple, Trapeze and Black Sabbath) and vocalist Joe Lynn Turner (formerly of Deep Purple, Rainbow and Yngwie Malmsteen).

Long time friends Glen Hughes and Joe Lynn Turner had first planned to release an album together in 1989, the two got together and wrote some demos, but nothing ended up being released from these sessions. In 2000 Hughes toured Japan with Turner, followed by joint appearances during the Voices of Classic Rock tour in 2001. During this time the two decided to start work on a new collaboration.

The duo released their first album in February 2002, it was simply called HTP. The album featured Hughes’ regular guitarist JJ Marsh, who contributed to much of the song-writing. There were also contributions drummer Shane Galaas and keyboardist Vince DiCola as well as guest guitarists John Sykes, Paul Gilbert and Akira Kajiyama. The follow-up album, simply titled HTP 2 was released in September 2003 and was stylistically in a similar vein to the first record.

After the conclusion of the 2004 tour the pair decided to put the Hughes Turner Project on an indefinite hiatus so they could focus more on their solo careers

    "Mystery of the Heart", "Fade Away" - best ballads of this group.

    Совсем неплохо, великие легенды харда. Правда до таких песен Rainbow как "I surrender" и "Cant let you go" не дотягивает. Голос Тёрнера уже не такой как в 70-80-е, сейчас более низкий. А вот музыка полностью как у Deep Purple, особенно, клавишные, Может, Джон Лорд поигрывает втихаря у них :)

    The concert i saw in Spain wasn't exactly as powerful as I expected it to be, but man, for their age (with all due respect to The Gods) they rock like hell.

    One of the greatest recent hard rock projects! It's really sad they haven't recorded a DVD!
