Deep Purple bassist Glenn Hughes has claimed that he "spent a million dollars on cocaine" in his autobiography Deep Purple And Beyond: Scenes From The Life Of A Rock Star.

The book, out on May 12, took Hughes three years to write, was co-written by journalist Joel McIver, and features an introduction by Metallica's Lars Ulrich. Speaking about the release to Blabbermouth, Hughes stated: "My autobiography is going to be a literary event and you've never read anything like it."



He added: "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 luxury first edition of the book will come packaged with a new acoustic Glenn Hughes track entitled 'Dying To Live'. He is set to tour the UK this month.
