Scrapbook Corner
 
I like those faded pictures and articles, that give a fine taste of Saxon-history. Nice drawing that nr.1 picture,.. Hope there will come many more. Good work Mr. Byford. Glad that wasnt burned during the fire. Treasures from the past, being rescued in time..fantastic!

I like the scrapbook corner, too. It reminds me of Saxon's glorious past and some memories from the 80s come back to my mind. Is it really more than 20 years ago? As time go by...

But unfortunately I missed the first part of the scrapbook corner. What was the drawing like? Could you please post it or PM???

Cheers,
Jo

I like the ticket pricing, the gig at Barnsley's Civic Hall (I think) 75p !

I agree - the Scrapbook Corner is a great idea ! Thanks, Biff. The change in ticket prices over the years is interesting (well – to a sad’n like me !!). Looking through my old (unshredded !) tickets:

Wheels of Steel (1980) - £ 2.50
1980 Donnington (Saxon with Rainbow, Judas Priest, Scorpions, April Wine and Riot) - £7.50
Strong Arm (1980) – £ 3.25
Denim & Leather (1981) - £ 4.50
Eagle has Landed (1982) – £ 5.00
Power & Glory (1983) - £ 6.00
Crusader (1984) - £ 5.00
Innocence is no Excuse (1985) - £ 5.50
Rock the Nations (1986) - £ 6.00
Destiny (1988) – shredded !
Rock n Roll Gypsies (1989) – shredded !
Ten Years of Denim & Leather (1990) - £ 7.00
Solid Ball of Rock (1991) - £ 7.50
Forever Free (1992) – DM 28
Dogs of War (1995) – DM 30
Unleash the Beast (1997) – DM 35
Metalhead (1999) – DM 35
Killing Ground (2001) – DM 42
Lionheart (2004) – £ 16.50
Night Out with the Boys (2006) - £ 15
Harvey Goldshite at Sheffield (2007) - £ 15
Inner Sanctum (2007) - £19.50

p.s. - loads of my old Rainbow and Whitesnake Tickets are from "Harvey Goldsmith Presents" !

Cheers,

Goss.

Scrapbook Corner
 
Talking of Scrapbook Corner, does anyone out there remember a really old B&W pic of Biff watching his (then) wife/girlfriend(?) washing the car while he just stood there with a mug of tea in his hand?! I think it was in one of the tabloids rather than a music paper, early 80s (?) - I could be wrong on some of that detail though.

It's still a scene that gets re-enacted in our household whenever I get round to washing my car (well, we think it's funny :) not sure how many other people would get it though - it is a bit of an obscure reference!).

If by some miracle anyone has a copy of that pic and could post it here, that would be great. Or if Biff could post it in Scrapbook Corner even better!

Fingers crossed,
S101

... forgot to say in my previous post, thanks Goss for posting the old ticket prices: a real picture of the British (and German) economy in a nutshell. Don't let Gordon Brown see it, he might try and slap a bit more tax on tickets too, on top of all life's other essentials (alcohol, etc.)!

Talking of which, anyone seen the price of tickets for the Scorpions at Manchester Apollo later this year? Seems to be hovering around the £38 mark, inc. booking fee. Blimey. I'm still waiting for them to go on sale at Hammersmith, but guess the price won't be a lot different -- probably even more expensive :( Still, you can't take it with you ...

(Sorry if I should've started a new thread to moan about ticket prices -- I'm new round here :confused: !)

I would have gone to see Scorpions at the Manchester gig, but not at £38 a ticket! Talk about taking the piss!

Saxon Chick 03-24-2007 07:27 PM

I don't think it cost that much when we saw them with Judas Priest, never mind on their own!!! Would love to see them again, but like you say, not at that price!

Nah Wilks buys the buckets of breezers!

The Scorpions are playing The Rock and Blues festival in Derby in the summer. Think tickets are something like £35 in advance, and that is for a few days entertainment, plus loads of other bands. So why bother paying £38just to see a couple of bands? Me thinks the Scorpions think they are bigger than they really are! Will be interesting to see how many tickets thet sell.

Rock & Blues in a great Festival as well !! Very well run by the Outlaws MCC. Last time I was there, the mud was a foot deep ! (Waysted were playing Mad Dan).

I have just got my tickets for Arrow Rock Festival on 30th June where Scorpions are playing with Aerosmith, Steve Vai, Thin Lizzy, ZZ Top Outlaws, Europe and INXS. Tickets are Euro 69 (but I have gone for VIP at Euro 145).

Here is the link if you are interested: http://www.arrowrockfestival.nl/flas...age.asp?id=103

Are you going to the Rock and Blues festival this year Goss?

Scandinavian101 03-26-2007 09:11 AM

Thanks all. Glad it's not just me thinking the Scorpions tickets are a bit pricey. Maybe it's cos it's a sort of double-header with Michael Schenker?? Having said that, going on past experience, who knows if he will even turn up?!

Note sure yet. Good line up with Scorpions and MSG. It would be also good to see GMT (big John McCoy and Nigel's mate Bernie Torme from Gillan). Will check with the crew to see if they are interested (we have loads of gigs coming up and may need to be selective).

Cheers,

Goss.

GOSS mate, with the greatest respect I think you should be aware that Outlaws are an MC as are Hells Angels...........top of the food chain.......MCC's are one step down from that.

Rock & Blues is indeed one bloody fine & well organised festival though, can't fault you on that one!!

Lecture ends..............

Were they nice? I'm suspicious about mr. Kilmister...:)

midnightrider 04-01-2007 01:32 PM

They were all cool,happy to chat and sign things.Lemmy's fine met him a few times since then always willing to chat so long as you buy him a JD and coke.

Cat of Peace 04-01-2007 01:43 PM

:) You are two old friends!
Some years ago I met Glenn Hughes. He played in Genoa and after the concert he stayed to sign booklets to the fans. I have a picture with him too!:)
