DOUG SCARRAT

INTERVIEW AND PICTURES BY MARKO SYRJALA

Saxon, the legendary English heavy metal band, was founded in 1976. They are one of the pioneers of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal, and during the 80’s Saxon established themselves as one of Europe’s biggest metal acts. The band is still going strong and they tour on a regular basis. They have released 21 studio albums including their newest, BATTERING RAM, which came out in October 2015. The band arrived Finland on 6th of December along with Motörhead and Girlschool. I then sat down with the band’s long-term guitarist Doug Scarratt in Helsinki and we discussed many different topics such as touring with Motörhead and the new Saxon album.

Edit: It should be noted that when this interview took place, we had no idea what was going to happen for Lemmy in just a few weeks…  😥

CLUB NOSTURI, HELSINKI

REPORT AND PICTURES BY MARKO SYRJALA

The British NWOBHM legends, Saxon, released their 19th studio album CALL TO ARMS in May 2011 and they have been touring heavily across the globe. Although the band had been annual visitors to Finland, they now played their first show in Helsinki in four years! The support band for this leg of tour was Canadian metal band Anvil. It seems that there’s a great demand for these classic bands in Finland as this show sold out with the 1000 person capacity reached right after tickets came on sale.

GRAHAM OLIVER and STEVE DAWSON

In 1979 when the classic NWOBHM band SAXON was formed its ranks consisted of five members, singer Biff Byford, guitarist Paul Quinn, guitarist Graham Oliver, bassist Steve Dawson and drummer Pete Gill. Now, thirty years later only Byford and Quinn remain under the SAXON banner. However, Oliver and Dawson have since joined together to carry on their part of the SAXON legacy. First, in 1996, under the name SON OF A BITCH, with Pete Gill on drums, and later, mainly to appease the promoters, as OLIVER/DAWSON SAXON. Read on to learn, straight from two founding members of SAXON, about the various stages in the history of one of the most celebrated metal bands to have emerged from the New Wave of British Heavy Metal, and the falling apart, piece by piece, of its classic lineup through the years.
