SAXON Drummer Is 'Ready To Rock'

SAXON drummer Nigel Glockler has issued the following update:

"So we're off on tour again, via production rehearsals in Bad Soden, near Frankfurt.

"Doug [Scarratt, SAXON guitarist] and I hit the Eurostar and the Ice train on Tuesday.

"Really looking forward to the gigs. Here I must mention that some of you knew I'd had a problematic neck/shoulder/arm at the Sheffield concert — turned out it was a massive muscle spasm I'd had a week before and I ended up on the strongest painkillers bar morphine! Quite what brought it on is anyone's guess but I ended up on the floor in agony at 5.30am the previous week. The hotel bed was crap so that could have contributed to it. Anyway, it's been hammered with deep tissue massages, osteopathy, and chiropractic visits on a regular basis — several times a week. Here I've got to thank Sarah Lloyd for the pummeling, Mark Pearce for the traction (and acupuncture) — both from the Back To Health Clinic in Hove, and Mark Yacoub from Chiropractic First, also in Hove — thanks, guys!!! Last but not least, cheers to Dr Brian Wells for getting me through the Sheffield gig by wiring me up to some Russian gizmo which calmed the inflamed muscles/nerves down.

"So now I'm ready to rock!!!! — and it's F1 soon!!!!!! — no Michael Schumacher though :-( - I'll be keeping an eye on Kimi this season."

SAXON's latest album, "The Inner Sanctum", has entered the Swedish album chart at position No. 39.

In other news, SAXON frontman Biff Byford has opened an online scrapbook featuring documents found in a box after his house burned down in March 2005. The first of the documents can be found at this location, with more to follow every few days.

SAXON has launched a podcast and tourblog via its official web site. Both will be updated regularly throughout the course of the band's European tour.
