Saxon's Biff Byford Turned Down Rush Opportunity

(Classic Rock) Saxon frontman Biff Byford still regrets turning down an invitation from Rush to travel with them on their tour bus. Geddy Lee and co extended the offer while the bands were playing across the US together in the early 1980s.

And if he'd accepted, Byford would almost certainly have got to know Rush far better than he'd come to during their string of concerts. He tells Songfacts of Saxon's first-ever US trip: "It was great since we're huge Rush fans.

"We ate with them and we said hello a lot - but we didn't really have to much to do with them. They were a little bit untouchable in those days. They once invited me on the bus to travel with them, but I didn't think it was fair that the rest of the guys wouldn't be on it. I sort of kick myself on that; I should have gone on it!" more on this story
