First of all. this website is dedicated with much love to the late Julie Edmundson.
It celebrates the many achievements of SLADE (Hill - Holder - Lea - Powell).

www.slayed.co.uk
would really like to thank the group's fans for their most valued and important help over the years, for the selfless dedication and provision of effort, time, knowledge, updates and for finding - and usually generously sharing - some truly unbelievable and rare archival material, for other Slade fans all around the world to enjoy via this and a number of other truly excellent websites.


This page is totally and completely independent of Slade, of record companies and of any Facebook groups or pages.
It is not owned, censored or influenced by or shackled to a record company.
That makes a web presence impotent and useless.

Please note that none of the band have individual personal Facebook pages or profiles of their own.
Don Powell does however have a page for The Don Powell Band.
He also communicates with fans via his Official Facebo
ok page which Chris Selby runs for him.
Chris Selby also runs the Jim Lea Music Official Facebook page.


We do not recommend any other Facebook groups or pages.


How do I contact the members of the band? / Where do the members of Slade live?
This website will not divulge private addresses, or pass messages on to the band. Their addresses are deliberately kept private and they have made an effort to be far more difficult to track down. Bear in mind that they retired from the music business a long time ago and that, just like normal people, they now greatly value their privacy. They have spent considerable amounts of money on their priority of living quietly, out of the way. We absolutely do NOT encourage fans to turn up in person at the group's homes. This is an awful and quite unfair and unwelcome intrusion into their privacy. It happens from time to time and we are sure they are not at all happy about it.

To quote Nod and Dave on valuing their privacy:

Do you NOT do things, because you’re afraid you may get pestered by people who might recognise you?

Nod: A lot of the time, yes. I get offered the chance to go to a lot of functions, but I don’t want to get back on the treadmill that everywhere I go I’ve got to be signing autographs for half an hour. I don’t mind it now and then, but I’m not going to do it everyday.

Do you have a clear division of your working and non-working time?

Nod: Definitely. I keep my private life totally private now and have done for a long time. I don’t see that my home life is anyone's business now. We lived in the public eye for so long and it took a long time to get back any kind of privacy... not total privacy, but as much as possible. If you’re a known face, it’s very difficult, you’d have to disappear off the face of the earth to get it. If you go into a pub or restaurant, there will always be some watching you drinking and eating. There’s no getting away from it. The last thing I want to do is go out for a drink or meal and finish up talking Slade for a couple of hours. We’ve lived Slade for 20 odd years. It’s the last thing we talk about if we all get together. There’s nothing else to say after that amount of time.

Dave: The press can ask very personal questions that could upset you. It’s like Cliff Richard, they always want to know if he’s ever slept with a woman.

Nod: It’s the same with us. Cliff always gets that style of question and with us, it’s 'Merry Xmas' or 'Don’s accident'. They ask how he is, as though it only happened a couple of years back, or they ask how 'Jim Powell' is getting on after the crash.

It is not a great idea to contact Newman and Co, unless there is a serious business proposition in mind that will be of interest to Nod or Jim. Slade are only a tiny part of their work and they have a lot of other things to do. They do not want fan mail in their system.


 


Dave and Don can be contacted in person, before and after their stage appearances with their bands.
