Saxon has been around since the NWOBHM..and they are still kickin a$$.....I was able to see them a few times in the 80s....Biff Byford is one hell of a singer.....
That is just plain good old Denim and Leather style metal...!!!!!!!!!
Its funny that some of the guys in that band(Saxon) are old enough to be fathers to some of the youngsters on that list.....
