Whatever Happened to Slade?

October 13 1979. I date a remember because it’s my 21st birthday. I’m living in Nottingham now in a cold damp Victorian house in one of the less salubrious parts of the city (of which there are plenty). 1,914 more words

Song of the Day

I opened YouTube to get some inspiration. But even before the site showed up the song already started playing in my head! I listened to it over and over again when it was released in 1983. 181 more words

Song Of The Day

Slade at White Rock Theatre, Hastings 14/11/15

Tonight was my twenty-second Slade concert. After seeing them three times as a teenager in the early 80s the band abruptly stopped touring. But since guitarist Dave Hill and drummer Don Powell revived the band in the early 90s, sans Noddy Holder and Jim Lea, I’ve see them most years since. 367 more words
