Happy 75 To NODDY HOLDER – Loudmouth Of Glam Rock Legends SLADE

15 June 2021

Neville John “Noddy” Holder was born on 15 June 1946. Happy 75 to the
brilliantly loudmouthed frontman of glam rock legends SLADE who scored a
stunning series of massive get-down-and-get-with-it hits in the 70s. He left the
band in 1992, starting a new career as radio presenter, television personality,
actor and voice-over artist. Back in 1980 after Bon Scott, singer of legendary
hard rockers AC/DC passed away he was asked to replace Scott. Holder said
no: “My loyalty is to Slade”.

Well alright everybody, let your hair down
Want to see everybody get up off their seat
Clap your hands stamp your feet, get down
get with it

Three big Slade moments to
celebrate Noddy‘s birthday…

Screamy glam rockers SLADE from Wolverhampton were a massive hit machine back in
the early seventies (17 consecutive top 20 hits and six number ones on the UK Singles Chart) Frontman Noddy Holder‘s voice was one of a very clamorous kind and essential
for this 4-headed gang that looked weirdly flashy and made a living out of easy shout along bangers. Big bands such as Nirvana , Smashing Pumpkins, The Ramones, Sex Pistols, The Undertones, The Runaways and The Clash all said at one point that Slade influenced
their own racket. CUM ON FEEL THE NOIZE was their fourth numero uno crackerjack
in the United Kingdom when it landed on the top seat of the singles chart on 20 March 197345 years ago today. Manchester legends Oasis covered the steamy track as
one of the B-sides for their ‘Don’t Look Back In Anger’ cd single in 1996.
