Something I've noticed I find puzzling, it seems most of us here agree that the current line-up of Saxon is the best, and that the albums they've been releasing are among the best in metal...so why is so little of it played live? From the show I saw last year, to the "Warriors of the Road" dvd/cd I just got, to all the shows I've seen on youtube...the lion's share of the shows consist of the old classics. Remember how Iron Maiden did their "Somewhere Back in Time Tour?" Playing nothing but all the old classics, mostly because their current material can't hold a candle to that, well, Saxon should have a "Somewhere in Recent Time Tour." Playing nothing but material from "Unleash the Beast" to "Battering Ram", which in my bloated-self absorbent-narcissistic opinion, far exceeds the "glory days!"
