SLADE  - The things people have got entirely wrong!!!

Every now and again, somewhere on the Internet, someone has clearly just woken up from a bad dream fantasy, about Slade of all things, and spouts the quite mad contents of their tortured brain onto the net for all to read, claiming it to be an actual fact, instead of engaging a psychoanalyst to sort their heads out and realising that they are talking utter rubbish.

Once it's out there, some people will take it to be fact and repeat it.


This is - of course - a bit annoying to serious Slade historians, although some of their rants can only be described as 'dead funny'. Here are some of the more stupid recent ones for your amusement. Spelling and punctuation have not been corrected.

Noddy Holder





Noddy still asserts that Slade played their first ever gig together as the classic line-up of the band at Walsall Town Hall on April 1st 1966. This convenient snippet of utter misinformation was used to promote their 10th anniversary alabum, 'Nobody's Fools, released on 1st April 1976.

This despite newspaper adverts placing them in Newcastle Upon Tyne that day and the fact that Walsall Town Hall was noted in the local press as being closed for refurbishment that month. A 'white lie'.
