Default Greetings o/

Hello =)

So an introdution then...
Name: Janne Suortti
Gender: Male =) in some countries janne is a girls name
Age: 23
Location: Lappeenranta, Finland (south-eastern border, closer to st. petersburg than hellsinki =))


I've been a fan for only 3 years, but when I heard state of grace, it was love at the first chord I was at music store, familiar vendor and knew what kind of music I liked, he popped inner sanctum into the player I was just wwwwwoooow =)

Always kind of knew about the bands existence, listened motörhead from age 11 and judas priest, iron maiden too. Seen photos about metallica supporting saxon and knew then that pete gill played in saxon before joined lemmy co.

But let me tell you again, when I heard saxon for the first time, it was a \,,/__0__\,,/

Bought the album of course, and looked internet for tour dates. Lucky me, gig at tavastia club in a month, not sold out ^_^ I also had tickets to wacken and they were playing there too.

Saw them again last year in sonisphere, pori and wacken, both in front row Waiting for the next time.. =) Perhaps I need to go and see them sometime in UK too.

Got all the albums, vinyl/cd/ or both. (ok, haven't found eagle has landed part. II yet) My precious is wheels of steel vinyl with biffs autograph on the cover =) got in before the tavastias gig.

My dream set list would probably be like this, if one song from each album:

Valley Of The Kings
Need For Speed
Lionheart (english man 'o' war would be very goo substitute too)
Coming Home
Terminal Velocity (or the thin red line, depends on the mood)
Demolition Alley (or burning wheels)
Solid Ball Of Rock
Red Alert
Norhtern Lady
Devil Rides Out
Set Me Free
This Town Rocks
Never Surrender
Strong Arm Of The Law
Stand Up And Be Counted
Stallions Of Rhe Highway

Did I miss a record? I guess that's all...
But All the songs are great!!

Cheers to all you great saxon fans =) Prost!

Hi Janne! Welcome!
"But I don't want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.
"Oh, you can't help that," said the Cat: "We're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad."
