Jeremy Clarkson of Amazon.com‘s The Grand Tour, managed to test drive the Aston Martin Vulcan a few months ago.
He shows us what Vulcan owners receive when they buy their $2.4 Million hypercar! What they get for that price tag, in addition to the car itself, is an all-expenses paid trip to a track of their choice, along with a team of Aston Martin technicians, that are on hand for assistance, giving the lucky driver a chance to drive the car at full power.
With over 800 hp courtesy of the 7.0-liter V12, the Vulcan blasts from 0-60 mph in no more than 2.9 seconds, with a top speed of 224 mph.
One of our clients, musician, Glenn Hughes, and his band, Black Country Communion, affectionately known as ‘BCC‘ by their fans around the world, which also features Jason Bonham, Derek Sherinian and Joe Bonamassa, have just released their fourth studio album, BCCIV, after a 5 year hiatus.
Just like its three predecessors, BCC IV was overseen by Kevin Shirley, whose catalogue of hit records for Led Zeppelin, Iron Maiden, Aerosmith, Journey, The Black Crowes, has made him the hottest producer that rock music has to offer. Shirley, who originally had the idea of putting Hughes and Bonamassa in a band after seeing them jamming together onstage in Los Angeles back in November 2009 – is the group’s unofficial ‘fifth member’.
The initiative for the new album came from Joe Bonamassa, who contacted the band in 2016 to see if they would be up for going back into the studio to write and record a fourth album. Says Joe, “I just felt the time was right for Black Country Communion to go back into the studio and write and record a new album. When I contacted Glenn, Derek and Jason, they immediately agreed to give it shot. The timing was right.”
The band assembled to record ‘BCC IV‘ at Cave Studios in Los Angeles in January 2017. The album was mixed at Cave Studios in Sydney in March. The songs on BCC IV will appeal to all fans of high quality hard rock, also those that admire singers of distinction. Hughes is not known as The Voice of Rock for nothing.
In terms of content, ‘BCC IV‘ expands upon the progression that took place between the first three albums. With an abundance of heavy riffs, undeniable hooks, melodic flair and infectious choruses, ‘BCC IV‘ is a spectacular album that gets bigger and bolder with repeated spins.
“I wanted the new album to physically shake your soul. It’s a wake-up call.” explains Glenn Hughes.
