Saxon Recruit Udo's Son For Upcoming Tour Dates
. (Classic Rock) Saxon have announced that drummer Nigel Glockler will attend the band's upcoming shows following his emergency brain surgery - but he won't perform.
The NWOBHM icons have drafted in Sven Dirkschneider, son of ex-Accept singer Udo, to play the five UK concerts in February, which were cancelled when Glockler suffered an aneurysm on the road last month.
Saxon say in a statement: "Nigel will be at the shows to meet and greet VIP ticket holders. Sven will be drumming as Nigel will not be 100% fit by then - but he will be at the shows." Read more here.
