Reseña del editor
We knew wed recorded a good album; we just didnt know it was that good recalls Biff Byford of 1980s breakthrough album »Wheels Of Steel«. Sales of the record took off in an astonishing manner, and the album soon reached a phenomenal Top 5 placing in the mainstream charts, after which there was no looking back for Saxon.Emerging from the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal at the end of the 1970s, which brought to fame platinum album selling acts like Iron Maiden and Def Leppard, Saxon established themselves as one of the UKs foremost rock bands. By 1980, they had clocked up two Top Twenty albums in »Wheels Of Steel« and its follow-up »Strong Arm Of The Law« and two Top Twenty singles (almost unheard of for a heavy metal band) and also toured Europe and America, criss-crossed the UK twice and appeared at two of that years most prestigious events Motorheads Heavy Metal Barndance and the inaugural Monsters Of Rock festival at Castle Donington. Since then, theyve toured the world numerous times, headlining festivals from Reading to Wacken in front of some 30,000 people and selling millions of albums and singles.

Don't get me wrong, this is a good book, I read it in two days. There are huge fonts, the text is concise.
You have here the usual rock biography: sudden ascendance to the top, bad management decisions, the singer talking with pride about the hundred groupies he got, then the band falling from grace, changing some members, and making it to the top again.
Of course, Biff does not think that albums like DESTINY, ROCK THE NATION and INNOCENCE IS NO EXCUSE were near to absolute crap (they are!), but at least he admits that SAXON lacked consistency.
A lot of times SAXON is considered "the Iron Maiden that went wrong". However, in many aspects their actual albums are much more aggressive, well produced and adventurous than the formulaic and boring recent Maiden albums. SAXON don't write eight minutes songs just for the sake of them being long.
Anyway, Biff and SAXON are still going and this book will give you the reasons why.
