    This was a good read, interesting to hear about the early days of Saxon and all of the dealings with record labels and the in and out of various musicians Biff has a working man s point of view and keeps it simple albeit a bit repetitive at times.

    I got into Saxon rather recently and so I was interested in readingabout the band and learningabout their history This book is really only recommended for people who are really into Saxon It s not a very good read, honestly It is basically a transcription of a very long and at times rambling interview with Biff Byford The coauthor listed seems to have done little beside lightly edit the transcript I can t tell you how many times Biff makes a statement and then says something lik I got into Saxon rather recently and so I was interested in readingabout the band and learningabout their history This book is really only recommended for people who are really into Saxon It s not a very good read, honestly It is basically a transcription of a very long and at times rambling interview with Biff Byford The coauthor listed seems to have done little beside lightly edit the transcript I can t tell you how many times Biff makes a statement and then says something like, At least I think so I don t know as it was a long time ago Since the bulk of the people mentioned in this book are still alive, I don t understand why basic fact checking wasn t done The fact that Saxon has been around so long and is still making music is pretty awesome Most bands don t last this long, after all But what is probably a very interesting history is lost here and all you re left with are Biff s musings He oftentimes comes across as lacking much self awareness One of the driving questions of this book is why Saxon never became as big as other NWOBHM bands like Judas Priest and Iron Maiden Biff blames the record companies a lot, bad business decisions, former bandmates that didn t work out, etc But he neglects the person who has been a constant with the band from the beginning Biff Byford I m a big fan of Saxon, but they simply aren t as good as Priest or Maiden Something that strikes me about Saxon is how they have a couple great songs per record, but not a lot of records that stand out as great records Just about every one of the albums has a song or two or four that suffers from weak lyrics where Biff basically sings something very cliche over and over You Don t Know What You ve Got from Killing Ground comes to mind, as does Never Surrender from Denim and Leather, The fact that the book takes its title from this song just reinforces my point Byford is at his best when he s writing songs about history and war I love Saxon when they re at their heaviest Metalhead is one of the records I love the most, as is 2018 s Thunderbolt Basically, I think Saxon would be asuccessful band if Biff had a better editor and this book suffers that same fate

    You need to be a fan of Saxon, of Biff, to read this I m both and have been for getting on for 40 years blimey I m getting old The book seems to be, pretty much, a long, rambling, lightly edited conversation monologue with Biff There s lots of stuff in here about music, about his life, his childhood, the band, the trials and tribulations of dealing with managers and record producers, record companies and record company executives There s also a lot about what may be politely termed th You need to be a fan of Saxon, of Biff, to read this I m both and have been for getting on for 40 years blimey I m getting old The book seems to be, pretty much, a long, rambling, lightly edited conversation monologue with Biff There s lots of stuff in here about music, about his life, his childhood, the band, the trials and tribulations of dealing with managers and record producers, record companies and record company executives There s also a lot about what may be politely termed the rock and roll lifestyle aka sex Lots and lots of that As I was only 14 the first time I saw Saxon on stage it s probably a very good job this book wasn t around then I d have hoovered it up and probably been scarred for life However, from that first evening in 1980 at Derby Assembly rooms to the tickets I have for Biff s one man shows later this year, I m a fan Have been since then, will still be for a while longer I reckon I love this book, but unless you re a fan too you probably won t feel the same
