Time to throw in a little favorite scene of mine, from this video. During the singalong to 'Solid Ball of Rock', around 3.56 you can see this bloke in the audience:



He stands out a bit from the younger people around him. Late thirties, possibly early forties, slightly chubby, in a white T-shirt with a pair of sunglasses hung from the collar... he really looks like he's gone to the gig straight from his office.
He doesn't quite have the energy to jump and shout like the rest either, so he just sort of stands there nodding and swaying about -- but at the same time you can tell he's thoroughly enjoying the show.

You're a baby!

However it is great to see members who don't remember Saxon the first time around. I notice that at the gigs. It's the same with Iron Maiden as well. Tons of youngsters

I'm just behind you CurryMonster, by a few years

Seeing as I ordered the first Saxon album before it came out from my local record store, (who had not heard of Saxon at the time) I am claiming to be an oldie Saxon fan as well, I have seen them at least once on every tour/year since my debut on the Motorhead/Saxon Bomber tour.

I never really lost the faith, sure a few albums dipped in quality a bit but they all just about hang on in there, (with the possible exception of Rock The Nations) whilst the live concerts have always been top notch.

Life has been a bitch at times but Biff & Co have always seen me through

Thanks guys.
