New MOTORHEAD / SAXON Concert Report!
9/3/2015 4:06:05 PM by Frank Hill

The legendary House of Blues's patrons on parade pay tribute in merch to the legends: Maiden, Metallica, Priest, Dio, and of course, the reason for the season, Motorhead, all represented loud and proud. If there was anyone under 25, they were probably cowering in a corner somewhere in fear for their ears. Everyone knows Motorhead is truly "everything louder than everything else."

Right from the moment SAXON took the stage, whatever the years may have taken away from their pretty faces, they gave back tenfold into their skills. These boys are playing stronger than ever -- seeing is believing, hearing is bleeding. Nigel Glockler's drum-slaught gave you CPR. The twin axe act of Paul Quinn and Doug Scarratt were so balanced and instinctual, flawless in blend and compliment, and the results were explosive. And as for Biff Byford, one of the most beloved frontmen of his era and today, is a perfect cross between a gentleman and a mother's nightmare. A majestic, towering presence of wit and mastery, he seduced and worked the audience with ease...Saxon was one of the most surprising, and best, Metal shows I have seen in years. Walk in as a fan, walk out obsessed.

Now, of course, Lemmy is divine. We know this. It's a spoken and unspoken given. No one has ever embodied Rock -- the life, and all it stands for the way he does. He's his own man, doing his own thing, his way, for the moment, by the moment, and he doesn't care. And though the show was perfectly imperfect, it was testament of why so many generations of rockers have learned from them, and more need to. MOTORHEAD knows that before you smear the paint on your face or lace up your boots, there is volume, 'tude, and good riffs or you're not worth shit..."We are Motorhead and we play rock-n-roll!"
