Glenn Hughes wants Deep Purple MkIII reunion

Glenn Hughes has revealed that he's is keen to reunite with Richie Blackmore and the other members of the Deep Purple MkIII line-up for a reunion.

Asked by Rocknworld in a recent interview whether he ever thought a reunion of the band that recorded 1974's Burn and Stormbringer albums would happen, Hughes said:

"I think everybody…except Ian Paice….Ian is still in MkII. We've all spoken about it, through third parties. We've all spoken. I mean David [Coverdale] and Jon Lord and I have spoken about it at great length. Ritchie [Blackmore] has now spoken to people. I mean… Look, I'd like to do it for two reasons. The first simply being to play with my brothers again and to complete the chapter. But you know, I think it would be great to play with Ritchie again and David and Jon and Ian again. I think it would be really, really good. I think it would be a really great band. One last time, you know."
