Tragically Belgian Slade fan Randall Vincke passed away earlier this month. He will be missed. Visit Ran's site and his My Space profile (which features his version of Slade’s ”How Does It Feel?”).

Flame in Classic Rock

The October issue of Classic Rock had a full page article on Flame in which Noddy tells a bit about the story behind the film. CR has a list of the 50 greatest rock movies and Flame makes it to no. 42, which I find a bit unfair when you see what kinds of movies that are rated better than Flame. Oh well…. CR also has a ”49 best soundtrack albums”-list and here Slade in Flame makes it to no. 18. It gets a very good review and CR’s ”must hear”-track from the album is So Far, So Good.
