    A 160,000? Surely that can't be right?! If that is the right figure I am VERY VERY surprised! I would have expected AOR to sell more than that in the UK, let alone in America!

    As for the Saxon dvd. Without doubt get Chronicles. Everything about this dvd is brilliant, from the packaging to the actual content of the dvd. It is a 10 out of 10 dvd.

    Rhett was shot and killed in 92 I think?

    He was my fav.

    Riot did open for Saxon in 81 and I checked and the Glenn Falls show was April 12th.

    Goose,thanks for the info on that Saxon,Riot show.Damn, 25 years ago,seems like yesterday the place was packed and rockin.My dad took me to Saratoga in the late sixties to see bands like Blood Sweat and Tears,and The Guess Who.Must be in my blood.In 2005 alone I saw UFO,Derringer,Mountain,BOC,Krokus,Priest,The Outlaws,Wishbone Ash,and unfortunately,Anthrax.2006 has started with the cancelled Schenker show,hopefully Saxon and a few others will make their way over this year.

    I listened to an mp3 from that album "deal with the devil" (?) I love that song. What I like about the recording is that the guitars are very good to hear.. In this song 18 sec til 22 sec the guitars hear as if they are in front or above the rest of the song.. I wished saxon had done the same with the guitarsound on for example 'to live by the sword" Lionheart

    See http://www.ultimatemetal.com/forum/showthread.php?t=179882

    To live by the Sword



    What a nice intro digidigidigidigidigidigi .. AH.AH .. digidigidigidigi .. AH .. digidigidigidigi ..AH AH ..! like it and what a very good, clear, high, voice has Biff here..he plays with his voice a lot, fantastic . Heavy and quick –song I appreciate those little guitar riff-tunes on the left box on my earphone 39 sec.. 45 sec 48sec (second strofe) the same riff tunes as in the last strophe (the samuraispirit til seal) 3.12 sec 3.14 sec and 3.17 min it gives that dramatic atmosphere to it.. but as I said only when I hear it on Walkman ..on my big boxes you slightly hear it… the solo 2.17 min til 2.45 min makes me think of the band Paradise Lost again..not a solo that sticks on my C-driv in the head..but it suits to this song. It’s a song that immediately gets my attention, after once playing it already..it has tempo, etc.


    This is what I mean! those little riffs, or whatever the technical name is..

    I'm not sure, but are they called licks? Not really important thing to know, but who knows? :D

    Imagine a female in the audience after a gig saying to the guitarplayer: "I liked your licks very much!" :D What would she mean?
