Happy St. Patrick's Day, Glam fans! I'm Irish - maybe that explains the hot temper. At any rate, I wanted to write about an Irish Glam band. The pickings are slim, but there is one band with a really strong Glam tie: Sweet Savage.
What is the Glam connection you ask? Vivian Campbell of course. About a million years ago I wrote an article playing "six degrees" with Vivian Campbell. The guitarist has played with just about everyone: from Sweet Savage, to Dio to Whitesnake to Def Leppard.
At any rate, Sweet Savage formed in Belfast, North Ireland right before the dawn of the 1980s. Since today is all about the patron saints of Ireland, it's only fitting we pay tribute to an Irish band. And green beer. And the pot of gold. And green beer. And leprechauns. And green beer...
Anyway, some diehard soul recently posted a bunch of Sweet Savage clips. As you can imagine, the clips are rare - and it's hard to come by Sweet Savage albums, too.
Here's a live clip of Sweet Savage performing "Sweet Surrender."
Tell me, how will you celebrate St. Patty's Day? Will your celebration be Glam? At any rate, remember to have fun but please be careful.
