We recently published a news item on our website, in which we announced that guitarist Paul Quinn of English heavy metal veterans Saxon would be leaving the band’s live line-up. Now Quinn himself has posted an official message to fans via Instagram, thanking them for their support over the years and saying he intends to be involved with the band for more new music in the future.
“Dear all, seeing the tremendous outpourings of love and respect worldwide, I am deeply grateful. It was an honour sharing this life-enhancing experience with you, our loyal fans.
”I agreed to perform the confirmed shows until autumn, but due to other circumstances, the band need time to regroup sooner.
After 50 years of being on the road, I look forward to trying some new things that this battered body still allows, so our paths might cross again.
I will always be proud of what we created with Saxon, so it will remain in my DNA. Finishing these last gigs for you and recording music when required is part of the plan.
I wish all the best to the band for their new chapter and I hope you will join me on mine, whether it is with The Cards or other projects.
Play it Loud and keep the Wheels of Steel rolling.
All my best, Paul Quinn“
