Slade biographies 2017
Dave Hill's autobiography was released in April 2017. There are also again rumours about a new Slade biography to be released in the autumn of 2017 by Omnibus Press. The title should be "Whatever Happened To Slade?". One of the best ever rock albums "Whatever Happened to Slade?" was released 40 years ago in 1977.
The Omnibus Press biography was already intended to be out in 2016 with the title "Nobody's Fools". It would have been then 40 years from the release of "Nobody's Fools" album. If the release of the biography will move to 2018, will its name be "Slade Alive Vol 2"?

Christmas Sheffield show for festive favourites Slade
The Star/Jon Ball 5.4.2017:
"Fans are invited to Feel the Noize when one of Britain’s biggest bands of the 1970s hit Sheffield.
Slade may be most famous in the 21st century for perennial Yuletide hit Merry Xmas Everybody, but the Wolverhampton glam-rockers enjoyed a string of hits four decades years ago, with 23 top-20 singles, including six number ones with tracks such as Mama Weer all Crazee Now, Cum on Feel the Noize and that festive favourite.
And now, due to constant demand, they have announced a tour later this year, including a date in Sheffield. Frontman Noddy Holder may have left, but founder members Dave Hill, on guitar, and drummer Don Powell are still going strong...
Slade today is still one of the most exciting bands on the road, and their stage performance is a dynamic, powerful and exhilarating rollercoaster ride of pure unadulterated rock’n’roll.
Slade play The Foundry on Friday, December 8."
