Joe Bonamassa has exited Black Country Communion, the group that includes Deep Purple, Black Sabbath veteran Glenn Hughes, drummer Jason Bonham and Dream Theater keyboard player Derek SherinianBonamassa said he enjoyed working with the band on the first two albums when everyone was focused because it gave him a chance to branch out musically, but added that distractions and tensions associated with touring with the group made him decide to make an exit. 'Everybody seemed to be very tense and it made my crew very tense. I like to tour. I run a family - I have 21 people who go on the road with me all the time and if you ask them who was the cause of the least of their problems, the would say me.  Unless there was no Diet Coke - then it's a huge *#$@ problem, and either I'm going to the supermarket or somebody else is.'
