Slade on German Television

On Friday the 21st of November Slade appeared on German RTL in the programme ”Die ultimative Chartshow”. The show was about comebacks and the guys landed on place 16 in a chart of biggest comebacks in Germany with Far Far Away that went into the German Top Ten in 1993
Slade performed Far Far Away on the show, followed by an interview with Don and Dave about touring, combacks, Reading and Don’s spandex trousers.
The funniest part of the interview was when the guys put on those “ear” microphones enabling them to get the English translation of what the moderator was saying in German. The moderator, German Oliver Geissen, asked if they could hear him to which Don replied, “I get the weather forecast for Tokyo!”
I think he got the biggest applause of the evening for that remark. When the applause had died down the moderator turned out to be as quick-witted as Don, going, “Newly we had, Welcome to McDonald’s, can I take your order?”, which made Don laugh out loud. Nice one.
