**** FAKE NEWS ****

Ron Smallwood, Iron Maiden manager, reveals the reason why Saxon is not as big as Iron Maiden or Def Leppard.

The 8-track tape is the sole differance between Iron Maiden and Def Leppard. Saxon never released any of their
albums on 8-track tape. In America that was a huge mistake. There was a whole segment of American kids that didn't
have access to Saxon's music. So Saxon's music was not ingrained into their adolescents. This is not a total fault
of Saxon but more of their record company and management.

I've heard industry talk that Saxon is finally going to release those early albums on collector 8-track tapes.


******* FAKE NEWS that is kinda real *********
