Glenn Hughes’ Autobiography: How Much For A Copy?!
In a move that makes tickets for Bon Jovi’s O2 Arena residency in June seem like a bargain, copies of Glenn Hughes’ autobiography can now be ordered – for just £550!
No, that’s not a mistake. That’s the cost of a deluxe edition. Here’s the official statement:
“Due to overwhelming demand we are giving fans the opportunity to pre-order the Deluxe Edition of Glenn Hughes’ autobiography The Life, Near Death And Rebirth of A Rock Star: Deep Purple & Beyond.
‘Only 100 copies of this edition will ever be made. Each copy will be hand bound in white satin, a reference to the suit Glenn wore at the California Jam in 1974. Each numbered book will be signed by Glenn Hughes. The book will be accompanied by an especially recorded 10 inch record pressed on white vinyl and authenticated with a hologram. Again, only 100 of these records will ever be sold. The entire set will be presented in a handmade solander box, with a numbered facsimile tour laminate and other goodies.
“It is intended that books will be sent out to purchasers in Summer 2010. As a gesture of thanks for supporting his book, everyone who pre-orders the Deluxe Edition will receive in the mail a personal signed note of thanks from Glenn on special notepaper. Each purchaser will also be invited as Glenn’s guest to special gigs in Europe and North America and will have the opportunity to meet him.
“Worldwide price is £550 including shipping.”
Words fail us. Presumably, Hughes is trying to make back some of the million dollars he spent on drugs.
