Glenn Hughes, the ex-bassist and singer of Deep Purple, criticized his former band members (Ian Gillan, Roger Glover and Ian Paice) of Deep Purple in an interview with Guitar Interactive Magazine. He talked about his experience at Deep Purple’s Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame induction in 2016.

“I will never speak to any of them again, simply because they were rude. Both Roger, Ian and Gillan were rude to David [Coverdale] and I. Very, very hurtful. […] I was the only sober man there. I don’t care about those guys. Gillan was rude to me on stage, accepting the award. I went to congratulate him. He looked at me in the eyes like I didn’t exist. The guy has a problem with me, period. I’ll let him run with it. I feel bad for him. […] I’ve tried to make some kind of friendship with him over the last 40 years,” he says. “He doesn’t want to know. David Coverdale and I don’t exist to him. I wish him only the very best, but I have no time left for that behavior.” Glenn Hughes
