VIDEO: Saxon’s Biff Byford talks touring + “This is Spinal Tap”

Saxon is touring the US right now and has a lot of festivals to hit in Europe next year in support of their album, Sacrifice. You can read more about the heavy metal band’s 40-year-run in a recent Whopperjaw interview with drummer Nigel Glockler.

Recently, we caught up with lead singer Biff Byford before a show and asked him a few quick questions. Here’s what he had to say about the band’s contribution to the classic mockumentary, “This is Spinal Tap.”
