Oliver/Dawson/Saxon
 
From the few clips I've heard from them, I have little to no interest in them. I've seen folks asking about a "Classic Saxon Re-Union"...which begs the question why, why would anyone want that? The best line-up is the one they currently have, since Doug has joined the band they've been releasing one killer lp after another! On par w/the best of 'em, "Lionheart" is so good it is on par w/"Holy Diver", "Diary of a Madman", "Piece of Mind", "Heaven and Hell"...heck it's so bloody good it's "Stained Class!" If the "Classic Line-Up" was so good there would've been no need to re-record the classic songs, save for they sound better now...This is the "Classic Saxon Line-Up!"

You are definitly right, the actual line-up is the best ever.
All i can say about ODS, they are very nice guys and they
make a good party on stage with all the old songs...
(Have seen and spoken them this year and 2014 at HOA)
Mr. Oliver is still a good guitar-player but Doug and
of course Paul will beat him in every case. And Mr. Dawson
has no chance against Nibbs.

By the way i think there are really not much people who think of a re-union with OD :eek:

See ya on the road, hmthunder

I think that the majority of the people who say they want to see a reunion are those that probably haven't followed the band much in the last few years. And there will always be those that live in the past.

Actually, it's been those conducting the interviews who have asked about that, haven't heard it from the fans yet, though I suppose they are fans...

Please don't ever do a reunion like that, the band is better now to my ears than they have ever been...why mess with a good thing? I agree with the above comments that the true Saxon fans have no interest in any reunion, we love the band the way it is and hope this is how it stays until the band calls it a day (hopefully not for another 20 years or so :) )

Candlemass 09-13-2016 03:45 AM

Towards the end here they are asked about a reunion...
