Biff met Lady Gaga

Monday, 20 December 2010


Just want to wish all our fans around the world a Happy Christmas and a great new year !

Just an update on what's been happening on planet Saxon...we've been working hard on the new album, a big thank you to everyone at hard rock hell who came to the show. We were stuck in the snow a day before the show so I went out and bought a 4x4 truck from the local garage so we could get there (that's dedication for you !). Unfortunately 2 days later the clutch went...

So I spent a cold lonely 3hrs on the A1 waiting for the AA man to turn up !
Got passes to see Lady Gaga for my daughter but she couldn't go so I went with our agent, Steve.. As we walked back stage we met the manager of heavy metal DJ Lady Starlight and a couple of members of the support act Semi-precious weapons and they invited us back to the dressing room for a drink. As we drained our glasses we said thanks and say hello to lady Gaga from us The show was great, we went off to the back stage bar for another drink. Suddenly Lady Starlight came in and said that lady Gaga would like to meet us, then we had a fantastic 50 mins with Miss Gaga who is a massive heavy rock fan and Saxon fan talking everything rock. She's a great lady and it was a great privilege to meet her. I think she's put a picture on her twitter. Just Google Biff and Gaga and it'll come up.

Looking forward to the cruise and off back to Australia again in February and may have to do some recording over there on our days off ( no rest for the wicked ) and the new World tour starts in Greece.

We're not on SPV anymore and we're talking to different record companies around the world. It's important we find the right one for the band.

Keep the faith

Biff Byford.

Saxon World Tour 2011 - Part I - Vanderbuyst

Thursday, 09 December 2010

Hey guys,

we are happy to announce our first confirmed support band for our tour through continental Europe. VANDERBUYST

The trio Vanderbuyst was formed in 2008 by super-guitar hero Willem Verbuyst who you might know from his cult- NWOBHM band Powervice,

Together with drummer Van Esbroek and bassplayer/vocalist Jochem Jonkman, Verbuyst will take you back to the days of Thin Lizzy, UFO, old Iron Maiden and of course Dutch classics like Van Halen and Vandenberg.

Energetic old school hardrock with some NWOBHM influences plus a rough edge but catchy as f•ck.

Vanderbuyst released their debut already in Benelux & GAS oct 15th 2010 and will be followed by releases in the rest of Europe by march 2011.

Check them out at http://vanderbuyst.com and enjoy the music.

Rock on! Leo

Due to data protection reasons, the winner will be informed by us personally who then can publicly share their good fortune via the forum or guestbook.

Have fun!


Deadline for Biff's tour shirt competition

Friday, 22 October 2010

Today was the deadline for the competition for Biff's tour shirt.  

Thank you for the numerous answers and emails. However, it seems that the question was a really tricky one because the number of correct answers is abnormally small. From Francis, Craig to bluntly writing Douglas Scarratt, to pork chop, we had it all.

The correct answer and full name however, is Douglas "Raymond" Scarratt.

We will now determine a winner from amongst those who answered correctly, and will announce the result beginning of next week.

So keep your eyes peeled.
