They owned Reading Rock in 1980, it was to them what Live Aid was to Queen

Slade was definitely a big part of my formative years... YouTube suggested another video and I watched it and got that same feeling I had when I was in my teens... It felt really fucking weird to a 62 year old to feel that again...

Noddy was that good he could have easily been a Rock, Music, Piss and Pussy, what else does a Rock need?

One of my brother's favorite story is from his, and my, youth regarding a small white rabbit. Marcus is 10 years younger than me so he was only about 5 or 6 when our parents bought him a little white rabbit. There was much mental meandering regarding it's future name and, frankly I don't remember this, but I took him outside and "counseled" him on the proper choice of names for small white rabbits in this household. The proper choice was to be "Noddy" and there were serious "consequences" for letting the family down...

Funnily enough Marcus named his bunny "Noddy" after the great Mr. Holder... :lol:
