Glenn Hughes, former Deep Purple bassist and Black Sabbath vocalist will release his autobiography later this year via Foruli Publications.

The book is titled 'The Life, Near Death, And Rebirth Of A Rock Star: Deep Purple And Beyond' and is co-written with Joel McIver.

It features an introduction by Lars Ulrich and will appear in a luxury first edition along with rare photographs and an exclusive 10" vinyl EP called 'The Life Of A Rock Star'.

The EP was produced by Glenn himself and was recorded in June 2010 by Jono Brown at Word of Mouth Recording in California. The tracks on the EP are;

'What Is A Woman's Role?' - Trapeze
'Holy Man' - Deep Purple
'Dying To Live' - new Glenn Hughes track

Hughes said, "My autobiography is going to be a literary event. I've been working on this book for the last three years and you've never read anything like it. It's the true story of the Voice Of Rock, from my childhood via my career in Trapeze and Deep Purple to my addiction and recovery. I'm now on top of the world as a solo artist and after so many years of sobriety, I can hardly believe that I survived. I spent a million dollars on cocaine and, when you've read this book, you won't believe it either."

'The Life, Near Death, And Rebirth Of A Rock Star: Deep Purple And Beyond' features contributions from Hughes' friend and comrade in Deep Purple David Coverdale, his lifelong musical collaborator Tony Iommi of Black Sabbath and a host of others, including Angie Bowie, John Varvatos and the members of The KLF, with whom Hughes scored a global hit in 1991.
