BCC Wins Breakthrough Act of The Year
Rock group Black Country Communion led by Cannock singer Glenn Hughes landed a top prize at last night’s Classic Rock Roll of Honour awards. The four-piece band, who released their second album earlier this year, won breakthrough act of the year.
The band also includes Dudley-born drummer Jason Bonham, son of late Led Zeppelin drummer John, guitarist Joe Bonamassa and keyboard player Derek Sherinian.
Hughes tweeted “sweet” after the band’s award was announced at the ceremony at the Roundhouse in London. Black Country Communion played their debut gig at Wolverhampton Civic Hall last December in front of 3,000 fans.
Other winners were Manic Street Preachers, celebrating their 25th anniversary, and picked up the classic songwriters award, while guitarist Jeff Beck collected a living legend award for his lifetime achievements.
The Classic Rock Roll Of Honour also recognised the achievements of a string of luminaries including Steve Winwood, former Pink Floyd star Roger Waters, Deep Purple and Jethro Tull.
