Default How's this for publicity?

If I was given the job to promote Saxon I would get in touch with Harmonix and persuade them to do a NWOBHM Guitar Hero game. GH is one of the best games ever (I believe even you xbox people can now experience the thrill). Just get a shitload of NWOBHM songs in there from Saxon, Priest, early Def Leppard, Diamond Head, Bitches Sin, Demon, Fastway, Jaguar, Mama's Boys...

In fact, take your pick from here NWOBHM

'Course, eighties U.S. metal would have to be included but why not? That's great as well.

The publicity this would give any band would be awesome.

Just a thought.

Thats not too bad an idea at all actually, those games sell very well, the xbox 360 version is only just out and a sequel is already planned. I think a Saxon song would be just great in the game.

I remember enjoying all the 80s metal in GTA vice city, i wonder how many got to hear and sing along with, 'you got another thing comin' , Reign in blood and peace sells because of that game... lol

That is a brilliant idea Anji-San and would certainly get a Saxon a lot more fans than THAT programme ever will. I actually won the Guitar Hereo 2 and the guitar controller thingy a few months back in a competition - hmmm I sold it on ebay - never thought of asking anyone on here if they wanted it!!!!

The best thing to get Saxon some superior publicity would be to have a concert sounding something like this:-

SAXON, DIAMOND HEAD, BLITZKRIEG, GIRLSCHOOL, TYGERS OF PAN TANG, PRAYING MANTIS etc

Great idea, Princess.

Excuse the following rant:

I have no idea why Iron Maiden are massive in this country and Saxon aren't. I like most classic rock music but IM are not one of my favourite bands, I think they are boring for a metal band. I still think its great that IM are popular worldwide and they have such a large fanbase just as I respect Britney Spears for being a worldwide success (I don't like it, but I respect it). After all, that is the whole point of being in a band. Remember this is the artiste's day job, if they don't sell themselves, they don't get paid.

Read in Classic Rock that AC/DC don't really exist in Japan - one of the most lucrative markets ever. Seems AC/DC have the same problem in Japan that Saxon have in Britain.

Anyway how about posting your ideas on how to market/promote Saxon in Britain?

Apparently its because the Japanese prefer schoolgirls rather than schoolboys

LOL the only tip I can give you is to do as many as you can. If you've got any spare time in between going to see Diamond Head and various other nwobhm bands , go to this website www.loquax.co.uk and enter as many online comps as you have time for. They are all free online competitions, SO GET IN THERE EMPEROR VALANX

I first started 2 years ago and it took me about 3 months before I won my first prize and now I am winning on average about 8 prizes a month - everything from CDs, DVDs, Playstation 3, Ipods, Bose SoundDock, TV, DVD players, Printers, Sony Camcorders, Playstation games, Christmas hampers, wine, beers, Marks & Spencer vouchers, Safeway vouchers, a year's supply of cleaning products etc., etc.

I've not won anything since I won the PS3 though a couple of weeks ago - so obviously I'm about due a big one any day now

And sorry Taggs - this has bugger all to do with publicity for Saxon hehe.

Thumbs up cheers!

Yes constantly touring with Diamond Head and all those other bands i love so does take up alot of my time as you know, but thanks for the advice, think i will give it a go!

You still have the playstation 3 ?? good luck with it if you put it on ebay! (or if you did, did you get a good price? ps3 sales is something ive been watching you see!)
