Exclusive juicy Rock stories by Slade iconic guitarist Dave Hill

Nov 29 2019

I know it’s the start of the festive season when I receive a phone call by Dave Hill, iconic guitarist with legendary glam rockers Slade, who get back on the road for a series of Christmas gigs. He always remembers me because we seem to connect over our shared passion for rock music.

Last time we spoke, a year ago, he told me he was working on what became So Here It Is: The Autobiography, the heart-felt story of his incredibly colourful life, from his childhood, humble beginnings as a musician and his raise to rock star status. Then there’s that festive smash, of course, ‘Merry Xmas Everybody’, one of six UK No.1 singles and 16 top-10 hits (added to three No.1 LPs and five top-10s).

This is not the usual interview where I ask questions but more a catch up with Dave telling me lots of anecdotes of his Slade days on the road. And being Slade a very ‘tactile band’ (in Dave’s own words), there are a lot of stories to uncover.
