Out of your two old bands, which one is perceived to be best or biggest in your opinion. I get Nazareth have crazy big followings especially in south America, Eastern Europe and Turriff, and they have longevity, but I would imagine SAHB have the better historical rep in the UK, they’ve had biographies and TV documentaries and the like. Is this replicated elsewhere? Can I ask your opinion?
You’ve kinda answered the question yourself Big Man.
Yes, Naz were much more successful, but SAHB had more street cred, especially in the UK.
When I joined Zal in 1978, each member of SAHB owed 60 grand (including Alex) to the record company.
When I joined Naz in 1981, each member had a second holiday home.
(Darrell even had his own speedboat in Spain called “Broken Down Angel.”)
Moral of the story: “Street cred and being popular in Turriff doesn’t guarantee you’ll get your own speedboat.”
