WHY SAXON NEVER BROKE AMERICA

Planet Rock latest issue hosts an interview with Saxon’s Biff Byford where he gives his reasons why the band never made it big in America. “We could have broken really big. We did well, but we didn’t make the breakthrough that Def Leppard or Iron Maiden did. There was always some mess-up with the records, and there were forces at work that weren’t exactly helpful. We didn’t have a great team around us at that point, and it was a very money-orientated time as opposed to a music or career-orientated time. Unlike Maiden and LEPPARD, we had no Rod Smallwood or Peter Mensch behind us to kick us up the arse when we needed it.”
