Hi All

I'm putting together my radio show for this week and was thinking of doing a special on bands that should have been big but never really took that next step even though (by all rights) they should have.

If you have any bands you can recommend for me to check out, please reply to this thread.

For example: Why did Maiden become so big yet Saxon never did? Maiden hit it massively big with Number of The Beast, Piece Of Mind, Powerslave but at the same time Saxon had Strong Arm of the Law, Denim and Leather, and Power Of The Glory which were just as good (if not better) than some of those Maiden records which made them huge.
Easy answer to that - Saxon's songs are pretty awful, and nobody in the band resembled, if you will, pinup poster material.

The usual act people mention in "underappreciated" rock bands, as far as I know, is King's X.
