Slade have phenomenal track record in the worldwide misic industry which covers no less than 3 decades of hit records during which the band featured in the charts for no less than 271 weeks, resulting in 40 hit singles including 6 number 0ne hits, plus 5 smash hits albums.
Slade are one of the ultimate pop music legends and the icons of GlamRock fashion.their songs, records, image and numerous TV appearances have left an indelible imprint on the record buying public, and it’s due to public demand that the show goes on!
the legend that eventually became Slade was instigated when Dave Hill first sowed in musical seed in the mid 60’s by teaming up with Don Powell’s band the vendors. Succes wasn’t instantaneous, but when the hit began to arrive it was as if the flood gates has opened, resulting in gold and silver discs and worldwide succes an fame!
Dave Hill has always been instantly recognizable trough his flamboyant style of dress and his on-stage up-front performance, while Don powell’s dynamic an energetic drumming has proved to be as much a trademark of SLADE as has the succes of such classic hits as “Merry Christmas Everybody”.
in 1973, in response to the demand of promoters through out the world, Slade co-founders Dave Hill an Don Powell decided to invite musicans with excellent pedigrees to join them. Guitarist and lead vocalist Steve Whalley had appeared with the likes of Chuck Berry, Barbara Dickson and Gerry Rafferty, and his bluesy gitar chops and powerful vocals elevate the band onto an even higher plateau – while vocalist and bass guitariist Trevor Holliday has been a pro musican since the age of seventeen. He formed the band french Connection who successfully toured Europe an support to peter Fampton and ZZ Top, then he had 3 German chart hits with a band called london, followed by a no-6 UK hit called “Danger Games” with the pinkees, all of which preceded his involvements with the rubettes.
the 1993 decision toreform and take the band on the road again has proved very succesful. Extensive tours an demands for one-nighter appearances in europe and scandinavia and the eagerly awaited annual christmas tours have proved an ongoing triumph. the legend that is Slade continues to weave it’s spell carrying the band into the new millennium.SLADE online boeken
