One of the greatest bands ever!
New line up....Noddy is doing tv and radio these days! Jimmy is doing? It is all on the web site.
I saw these guys at Reading years ago, one of the so called big bands bottled it, they stole the day!
One of the best bands ever. Had one or two hits as well! UNDERSTATEMENT!

The problem with the original line up was that the drummer and guitarist wanted to tour and the bassist and Nodday (who wrote the songs) didnt want to/need to. The current line up excludes the writers.

Shame really. BTW Noddy and Jim Lee probably earn more from the royalities to 'Merry Christmas' than the other two ever will. Just to twist the knife Slade songs have been used for ads for Fiat and the Ford Transit. The latter is still ont Telly.

Ah! ha!
I wonder much they have made off of that old chestnut!? Christmas isn't Christmas until I start playing that around the second week of December!
Jim Lea.....Great musician, plays a mean bass and fiddle....Writes a good tune too! Holder and Lea wrote just about all the hits
Happy memories!

If your drummer has to wear a mouthpiece....you rock.

 

That be a result of the car crash he suffered many years ago, lucky to be alive and suffered amnesia etc IF I remember correctly.

I am getting old!

I wasn't going to soil this thread by mentioning those clowns!
:D
Their 15 minutes was based on 2 Slade classics!
Pathetic isn't it?
