Glenn Hughes revealed that he rejected Ritchie Blackmore’s offer to participate in the new revamped Rainbow, marking the Man In Black’s return to rock since 1997. “Ritchie asked me to do it with him”, Glenn Hughes told HardRockHaven.net. “And I said no because he wanted to, funny enough, he wanted to use an unknown singer and I said, ‘It’s not me. It’s not me to do that.’ I’ve done that with David (Coverdale) and it was good. I don’t want to do it again. It was something… I said, I very eloquently said, ‘No, thank you. I really would like to see you, but I can’t do this at the point where I am right now”.
