Hear the story of Slade told through the eyes of drummer Don Powell.

 

Leaders of the glam rock movement, Slade were the UK's biggest singles band in the years 1971-74. Their many hits have become rock n roll standards, not least Merry Christmas Everybody, arguably Britain's all-time favourite Christmas song.

 

For Don Powell, though, success came at a price. Lucky to survive, the aftermath of his accident in 1973  included alcoholism, financial woes and a life of reckless promiscuity. Now sober and settled in Denmark with an adopted family of his own, Don Powell's story is a no-nonsense journey to the heights and depths of the rock world.
