SAXON Never Surrender (or nearly good looking) BOOK an autobiography by Biff Byford.
Publication Date: 20 Aug 2002
For over thirty years, Saxon has been led from the front by charismatic and larger-than-life vocalist Biff Byford. In ‘Never Surrender’, he tells his story for the first time, from his working class childhood as a terribly shy schoolboy in Yorkshire through the mega-days of the early Eighties to the bands Twenty-First Century rise to fame once more. Sometimes tragic, sometimes funny, but always brutally honest, ‘Never Surrender’ lifts the lid on the myths surrounding Saxon, as well as revealing the hard work and heartaches it takes to make it to the top and stay there.

5.0 out of 5 stars The True Metal Guru,
What a fantastic autobiography of the Metal Guru himself Buff Byford.
As a keen lifelong fan of the Mighty Saxon I thought this book was a gripping and most interesting read.
I look forward to the next chapter as Saxon and Biff Byford are resurrected and grow from strength to strength!
Keep it LOUD!!!!
5.0 out of 5 stars OK for fans,
I’ve just finished reading this book – I enjoyed it. `Never Surrender…’, the story of the rise, fall and re-emergence of one of British metals most august institutions, is undoubtedly long overdue. Told in a matey, chatty manner which makes it very easy to read. One thing I did notice is that almost everyone that Biffs ever met is a “nice guy” unless hes had an argument with them.
5.0 out of 5 stars great autobiography,
this is a great autobiography by Biff Byford from Saxon, this deals a lot with his childhood, his life both before and during Saxon so just so you know in advance this book is not a book about Saxon its about Mr. Byford. I actually really enjoyed it and found it to be an interesting read. The story is based entirely on Byfords recollection of events. Hes an engaging raconteur and many of his revelations are surprisingly fruity and near the knuckle.
