Biff Byford of British Metal legends Saxon has sent the following message to all Saxon fans.

"Hi,

"Hope you are all well.

"I would like to do something for charity on the upcoming tour. We are going to invite approximately twenty people a day to watch the sound check and meet the band after.

"The idea would be to turn up at the back stage door at 4.00pm. You must pay £10.00/15euros in cash into the charity box. The first twenty people to confirm they want to do this by clicking here to here to mail us will have a place reserved at a venue of their choice.

"All proceeds will go to Nordoff Robbins Music Therapy and Childline and the money will be handed over in London on the 23rd April for the UK leg and the last day of the tour for Europe. I think this is a first and I would like to make it happen.

"Biff

"P.S.: We cannot do this at festivals and Leamington Spa because this is our first show.

"Because so many of you are already registered for the newsletter lots of places are already gone. BUT It is not too late to register and sign up for the newsletter and we promise you that more things like this are coming.

"People had this info already for three days and a lot of places are already gone and if you want to get the advantage for newsletter in future: Sign up!

Click here to sign up.

"Further we would like to say that we are very sorry that the very beautiful venue Elysee Montmartre got damaged by a fire. We will definitely play the date in Paris. The gig has been moved now to the Bataclan where we're gonna rock in Paris.

"One more thing is that the venue in Milan (The Limelight) is closed. We are playing the Alcatraz instead.

"See you on tour!"




NOW AEROSMITH FANS CAN HAVE THEIR NAME IN FUTURE COLLECTOR'S ITEM

aerosmith

Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.

As well as shooting the band several times in England, this collection includes images from a session at the band's rehearsal room in Boston. Littered throughout is a mixture of live and off stage photos including a selection of photos taken at London's famous Marquee club when they were joined on stage by Jimmy Page.
