Default Biff wins Metal Guru award at Classic Rock Awards ceremony

Hi All,

Don't know if you have seen latest Classic Rock yet, but Biff is the proud owner of the award for "Metal Guru" at the recent awards event. The award was presented to him by Tony Iommi ( previous winner ), and there is a nice piece in there about them catching up with each other.

In the editor ( Scott Rowley's ) magazine introduction, he also states that "he remembers being insulted by a member of Saxon", so i don't know what that ones all about, but it made me smile. Having said that, the last few things in Classic Rock have been extremely positive for the band, so perhaps i won't go too hard on them.

Enjoy

Classical Rock is the only music magazine I will read, I have read stuff like Q, NME etc and they are all pathetic and too much polotics although Classic Rock is beginning to turn into Q minus the polotics

But hell yeh, Saxon reciving the "Metal Guru" awards is a great sign

Just got Classic Rock Magazine and read the article, wonderful stuff, Biff seems to poke some mild humor at himself, but great read and a congrats to Biff for the Metal Guru award and for keeping the old NWOBHM spirit alive for the past 30 years - heres to the next 30 years (!)

Also, to Saxon (and their family), have a Very Merry Heavy Metal Christmas and a happy new year, and leave no beer cans full!
