Nigel Glockler, drummer with British NWOBHM legends SAXON, has announced via his official Facebook page, that due to his move from the UK to the USA, he will have to miss the last two shows in Germany on the band’s current world tour. Nigel‘s last show this year is in Helsinki tonight (6th December). He stated:
“Good Morning from Helsinki!
As many of you are aware, the wife and I have been planning our move the USA for about a year – with things like a hospital stay and tours delaying this!
It was finally sorted and scheduled for this week – these dates cannot be changed so it means unfortunately I will not be at the rescheduled dates for Hamburg and Berlin. ( 9th & 11th December.)
My good friend Sven Dirkschneider of U.D.O. will be back behind HMS Glockler for me at these 2 gigs, but I will be back for the 2nd half of the tour when it picks back up in January.
SAXON continue their tour in 2016, starting in the UK on 24th January in Glasgow. For the full list of dates check here.
Drummer Nigel Glockler of British metal legends SAXON has announced via his official Facebook page that some of his equipment is either missing or stolen. Read Nigel‘s statement below:
“It seems I am the latest victim of equipment to be stolen or gone missing.
I’ve just been informed that 99% of my cymbals, sticks, pedals did not make it back after out last show at The House of Blues in LA last month. As well a limited edition Canopus snare drum that was a wedding gift from my wife is also missing. Our crew assures me it was packed up ready to be be collected, so sometime between them packing & the shipping company collecting they disappeared.
The cymbals were done especially for me, featuring the Saxon logo and font – so those will be easily recognisable – as you can see from the photo. As well my sticks feature the logo & my signature.
I would be most appreciative if people can keep an eye out & let me know if they spot them.
Gutted & furious does not even come close to how I am feeling!!”
SAXON drummer Nigel Glockler has made the happy announcement via his official Facebook page that he has made a full recovery from the brain aneurysm he suffered in December last year. You can read Nigel‘s words below:
“I am pleased to say that the neurosurgeons have informed me that I have made a full 100% recovery and there is zero damage at all from the ruptured aneurysm, mainly due to the part of the brain it was located in.
This means that I am okay to get back to work, but I am told to ease back into it. To that end I have started to work on getting my stamina back up and I look forward to being back full time very soon.
Thank you all again for the support and well wishes!
Great news Nigel! Best wishes from all the team at Metal Shock Finland!

Following SAXON drummer Nigel Glockler‘s recent surgeries for a brain aeurysm, his family have posted a new update on Nigel‘s official Facebook page, to let fans know of his progress. Check out the statement below:
“A quick update:
Nigel is getting better each day & I am hoping he can be released sometime next week. There are certain things the DRS like to watch for after these things so they are being overly cautious & want to keep an eye out on him a little longer – which is fine by me – my first and only thought right now is for his health/recovery.
The long term prognosis is excellent & they say he will be able to be back behind HMS Glockler when he is fully recovered. Updates for his return will be released by Saxon (Official) and Saxon management.
Many Many Thanks for all the support.
Gina, Justin & Madeline”
Metal Shock Finland send continued best wishes to Nigel for his recovery and best wishes to the family.
