Glenn Hughes spent his childhood in his hometown, the only child of William and Sheila Hughes. Information about his education is unknown, except that he quit school when he was 15 years old in order to pursue a career as a musician.

Glenn was initially a member of several rock bands as a bassist and vocalist, including the Hooker Lees, then The News in early 1967, after which he joined Finders Keepers and another funk rock band called Trapeze, all of which marked the beginning of his professional musical career and basis of his net worth. With Trapeze, he released three studio albums – “Trapeze” (1970), “Medusa” in the same year, and “You Are The Music…We’re Just The Band” (1972).

In the following year, he was offered to join Deep Purple to replace bassist Roger Glover, so he left Trapeze. His first major work with the band was the album “Burn” in 1974, and another one later that year entitled “Stormbringer”. Before they disbanded two years later, they released one more studio album “Come Taste The Band” (1975) and a number of live albums, all of which added a considerable amount to his net worth. Nevertheless, Glenn continued as a solo artist, releasing his debut studio album “Play Me Out” in 1977.

In 1982, Glenn co-formed Hughes/Thrall band with guitarist Pat Thrall, and they released the self-titled album, but without major success. Three years later, he recorded the studio album “Run For Cover” with Gary Moore, and during the same year, the band Phenomena released with him their self-titled album, and two years later “Phenomena II: Dream Runner” (1987), all of which increased his net worth by a large margin. Although he had serious problems with alcohol and drugs at that time, which had a huge influence on his musical career, he successfully released with Black Sabbath, featuring Tony Iommi, the album “Seventh Star” (1986).

By the 1990s, he had recovered and continued with his solo career, releasing such albums as “L.A. Blues Authority Volume II: Glenn Hughes – Blues” (1992), “Feel” (1995), and “Return Of Crystal Karma” (2000). His first solo album in the new millennium was “Building The Machine” (2001), after which out came “Songs In The Key Of Rock” (2003), “Music For The Divine” (2006), and “First Underground Nuclear Kitchen” (2008), all of which contributed to his wealth.

In the following year, he founded the band Black Country Communion, alongside drummer Jason Bonham, keyboard player Derek Sherinian, and guitarist Joe Bonamasa. The band’s debut album “Black Country” was released in 2010, increasing further his net worth, after which they released three more albums. The band split up in 2013, but in the same year he founded a new band called California Breed, and they released one self-titled album two years later, before splitting up in 2015.

Most recently, Glenn released a solo album entitled “Resonate” in 2016, and his net worth is still certainly rising.

Thanks to his accomplishment in the music industry, Glenn was inducted as a member of Deep Purple into the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame in 2016.

If to talk about his personal life, Glenn Hughes has been married to Gabrielle Lynn Dotsun since 2000; previously he was married to Karen Ulibarri. His current residence is in Los Angeles, California.
