Legendary British heavy metal warriors Saxon loudly continue unveiling their Inspirations covers project with the release of second single “Speed King”.
“Speed King” was originally released by Deep Purple from their classic 1970 album Deep Purple In Rock.
“Without ‘Speed King’ there would be no ‘Motorcycle Man’,” said Biff Byford when explaining the importance of the song on Saxon’s early career ascendance. “I love the attitude, energy and driving speed of this song, not to mention those screaming vocals! I’d never sung it before, and I had great fun with it!”
