    They were a joke when they first came out, at least among the musicians around here...

    It’s a shame Noddy never got to do a duet with Sam Kinison.

    Noddy has one of the best voices for rock music. The songs they sing are catchy. You ALWAYS tap your feet. There's nothing not to like.

    I also enjoy abit of Sweet.

    I saw them open for Aerosmith in the summer of 1974. The old Trenton Raceway.
    They were fun!

    A number of bands played that day, with Aerosmith as the headliner. Another one of them was Poco, which is who I was there to see.

    Memories....the crowd outside the stadium knocked down a section of chain link fence and poured in. We had a quarter keg of beer in the old VW Bus, so we drug it in with us, up into the grandstands. Yee Haw!!

    In the States there was a Slade coverband called Quiet Riot that had big hits from their material.

    This was the closest thing they had to a hit here in the States. Odd considering how Quiet Riot made a career covering their tunes!

    In the States they used to play "Merry Xmas Everybody" on the radio, but I'm not sure if it charted.

    I've probably heard that song more than any in my life. In the UK it must be the most played Christmas song ever. You cannot escape. It is a good job that it is brilliant. Especially after a lot of alcohol.

    Not charted.
    Wow. In the UK Slade had six Number 1 singles in the UK, the same as Queen, Blondie and Rod Stewart, and more than The Police, David Bowie and Bee Gees. They also made the Top 20 with 17 consecutive singles.

    Makes sense, Slade is way better than those bands.

    And platform boots way before anyone ever heard of Kiss.

    Im probably older than you. Most of the players around my age were into Yes, the Allman Brothers, B.B. King, or Chicago-type horn bands. Younger guys were into KISS or Foreigner. Slade was a little too young for people my age.
