    I've been a Saxon fan since a friend of mine gave me a copy of Power and the Glory in 1990, and have been following the band with die-hard enthusiasm since then. It would be interesting to know how old other Saxon fans are, and whether the band are picking up younger fans as they progress.

    I'm a MA film student (prospective at the Northern Film School in Leeds in september) and am 26. What about the rest of you, guys?

    Btw, Killing Ground is Saxon's best release in years. It's Helloween (when they had thier @#%$ together) with a hint of Maiden. Superb.

    I am 33 and have been a Saxon fan since...oooh, let me see...since about June 14th 2002, when I saw them in concert for the very first time!! Have still been listening to some of their music since then, so I suppose that means I'm now a "fan"??

    I have witnessed Saxon, live on their past two 'quick' tours of the USA.

    Biff is a great frontman and singer! Long live Saxon!


    megadethrulz: Good call on the new Halford!

    Crucible is very good! Sun is a fantastic song!

    well i'm about to turn 34 this July so that i guess makes me old!
    Been a life long fan since the start, saw Saxon first time in 1980.
    been there ever since, singing along (well if you can call it singing!) and having a great time with the best british Heavy Metal band ever.

    Halford Album is awesome. Check out new Primal Fear album as well, bit of a head-banging frenzy there as well.

    Nothing wrong with some of the new bands, the Goblin rock (great set at last years bloodstock), check out Area54 as well.



     

  16. 27 years old, and i follow to SAXON since two years ago when I hear Metalhead for first time.
     

  17. I am 36 and have been a diehard Saxon fan since I saw them on the Denim and Leather Tour in 1982.

    I`ll be 39 on August 5th. I`ve been a SAXON fan since 1982 when a friend gave me ``The Eagle Has Landed`` in liu of cash to pay back $5.00 he had borrowed from me. By far the best loan I ever made. I bought all of the previous albums and have quickly purchased every new release since. To this day, I know I got the better part of the deal.

    I listen to heavy/rock/metal since 12 or something...I wish I had enjoyed them a lot since I fist listened to Uleash the Beast song back in 98..
