Was just watching that, but Mrs Scotduke pointed out I was on the laptop so she switched over to Made in Chelsea. I give up.

Loads of Sabbath on BBC4 tonight from 2100hrs.
Followed by that Heavy Metal Britannia documentary that features Deep Purple and Sabbath members saying they were never Heavy Metal bands, and no Motorhead at all - the band that invented it (see previous arguments/debates !)

Watching Heavy Metal Britannia at the BBC.
Interesting to see Iron Maiden with their original lead singer Paul di'Anno (real name Paul Andrews !) doing Running Free :

You can see that he at least was more Punk influenced than Metal

Blast from the past - and a band that I'd completely forgotten about - despite seeing them play a couple of times 'back in the day'

2 reasons:-
1/ Nowt has been posted here for a while, and
2/ This was taken from Jools Holland, Search for the lost chord / Mr Roadrunner with jools riding across the States on a Vincent Black Shadow, playing tunes with the Great and Good of Rock, Blues and Folk.



If anyone can furnish me with the full film/rockumentary, I will be eternally grateful
