How do I contact the members of the band? /
Where do the members of Slade live?

This website will not divulge any private addresses, of the group, or pass messages on to the band.

Nod and Jim do not, as a rule, reply to any mail that is sent to their postal addresses.
They are deliberately private and have therefore made it so that they are far more difficult to track down. Bear in mind that they retired from the music business a long time ago and that, just like normal people, they now greatly value their privacy. They have spent considerable amounts of money on their priority of living quietly, out of the way.

To quote Nod and Dave on valuing their privacy:

Do you NOT do things, because you’re afraid you may get pestered by people who might recognise you?

Nod: A lot of the time yes. I get offered the chance to go to a lot of functions, but I don’t want to get back on the treadmill that everywhere I go I’ve got to be signing autographs for half an hour. I don’t mind it now and then, but I’m not going to do it everyday.

Do you have a clear division of your working and non-working time?

Nod: Definitely. I keep my private life totally private now and have done for a long time.

I don’t see that my home life is anyone's business now. We lived in the public eye for so long and it took a long time to get back any kind of privacy... not total privacy, but as much as possible. If you’re a known face, it’s very difficult, you’d have to disappear off the face of the earth to get it. If you go into a pub or restaurant, there will always be some watching you drinking and eating. There’s no getting away from it.

The last thing I want to do is go out for a drink or meal and finish up talking Slade for a couple of hours. We’ve lived Slade for 20 odd years. It’s the last thing we talk about if we all get together. There’s nothing else to say after that amount of time.

Dave: The press can ask very personal questions that could upset you. It’s like Cliff Richard, they always want to know if he’s ever slept with a woman.

Nod: It’s the same with us. Cliff always gets that style of question and with us, it’s 'Merry Xmas' or 'Don’s accident'. They ask how he is, as though it only happened a couple of years back, or they ask how 'Jim Powell' is getting on after the crash.

It is not a great idea to contact Newman and Co, unless there is a serious business proposition in mind that will be of interest to Nod or Jim. Slade are only a tiny part of their work and they have a lot of other things to do. They do not want fan mail in their system.

We absolutely do NOT encourage fans to turn up in person at the group's homes. This is an awful and quite unfair intrusion into their privacy. It happens from time to time and we are sure they are not at all happy about it.


Please note that none of the band have individual Facebook pages or profiles of their own.


Dave and Don can be contacted in person, before and after their stage appearances with Slade.
