Not sure if Saxon actually played this on TOTP.

The song was aired on the 9th July 1980 edition, but Saxon themselves didn't play on it, just a bunch of other musicians. Apparently there was a strike by the Musicians Union, and no members of any band appeared. They were no 14 that week.

Thin Lizzy were also supposed to be on this week.

Not sure if they appeared on any other editions of TOTP playing 747.
