Saxon's Biff Byford Explains Evil Look Was Down To Illness

(Classic Rock) Saxon frontman Biff Byford managed to look evil in the video for their recent track Sacrifice because he was ill during the shoot. But he enjoyed the experience, and he's revealed how the band hired a professional crew without having to pay them.

Byford – who's recovering well after sustaining a back injury that forced them to cancel a festival appearance this month –tells Legendary Rock Interviews: "I filmed it with an actor-director friend of mine who's a big fan. I party with him quite a bit, and I asked him to shoot our video, so he did it with his film crew.

The stunt guy had worked on Harry Potter and the pyro guy had worked on a James Bond film. There was a huge crew and it was a lot of fun – they just did it for some booze and to hang out with the band."

Bassist Nibbs' performance in the promo is notable, Byford says. "He was positively drunk – he was a bit out of his box so he just went for it and we just let him go. It was cool." Read more and watch the video here.
