When the New Wave of British Heavy Metal (NWOBHM) wash ashore states side.
Everything changed and it was evident by the sheer amount of american bands that sprung up from the influence. One of the bands that rode that wave and is still banging it out today is Saxon. Tune in to hear my chat with front-man Biff Byford ahead of this Thursdays (9/12) show at the Emporium in Patchogue. Opening for Saxon is the WWE superstar Chis Jericho's band Fozzy.
I had a great talk with Chris that you can listen to as well.
