Saxon Invite Nurse That Helped Save Nigel's Life To Show


(Classic Rock) Saxon drummer Nigel Glockler will be reunited with the nurse who helped him recover from life-saving brain surgery when the band play in Newcastle this month.

Glockler took seriously ill ahead of a scheduled Newcastle gig on the band's winter UK tour in December 2014 and was diagnosed with an aneurysm. One of the medics who looked after him at the city's Royal Victoria Infirmary was a Saxon-loving nurse.

And as the band prepare to return to Newcastle for the first time since his illness, Glockler was keen to track down the man and invite him along to the October 28 show at the O2 Academy as his special guest.

Not long after launching a social media appeal, Matt Kerr got in touch and he'll attend the show along with his son.

Glockler tells TeamRock: "Not surprisingly, considering what I was going through at the time, I couldn't remember the guy's name. But I knew I and my wife Gina would recognise his face so we asked for help to track him down on social media.

"Before I knew it, he had got in touch and Gina recognised him straight away. It's great and I really look forward to seeing him and his son at the show.

"We have already reached out to the surgeon Dr Patrick Mitchell and his team to invite them to the gig too, but I remembered Matt was a big Saxon fan and I knew he'd appreciate it." Read more here.
