Bonamassa Business Partner Takes Cancelled Show Blame

Roy Weisman says he made the decision

In an interview with Classic Rock Magazine, Weisman says that Joe's solo career was always going to come first ahead of Black Country Communion and that everyone in the band apart from Glenn Hughes knew that.

He tells Classic Rock: "When BCC was created almost three years ago, everyone knew Joe had a full-time solo career. This project was ‘modern Travelling Wilburys,’ bringing four individual artists with their own careers together to make a great record.

"Both Joe and I were always above board about the touring. It was always meant to be from time to time. However, especially with Glenn, this idea seemed to go in one ear and out the other. His manager always knew the deal, even though Glenn wouldn’t stop pressing on the point.”

He added "When Glenn started speaking about Joe the way he was in the press, revising history on the spot, it became overwhelming. It got to a tipping-point where it was no longer comfortable for either Joe or I to want to [play] Wolverhampton.

"In the end I am the one – not Joe – who made the decision to cancel Wolverhampton. So there it is. All fingers can point to me!”

BCC release their third album, Afterglow, on Monday 29 October and they have released their final "making of" Afterglow Webisode.
