Saga

Saga has got to be my favorite band of all-times. They have been together now for 30 years, but unfortunately Lead singer, Michael Sadler is leaving the group at the end of this year. They have a final cd with Sadler coming out either end of this year or begining of next. Also, a farewell tour going on now. Lots of european dates and hopefully some Canadian Dates. Saga is such a great band...let's talk about them.

My suggestion is to go to youtube. There most famous song/video was On the Loose. Other videos that got plenty of airplay on MTV: Wind Him Up, The Flyer and Don't Be Late.

If you knew Wave Babies and Stay in the Light by Honeymoon Suite I am surprised you did not know Saga. Another famous song by Saga in Canada is Scratching the Surface.

I saw Saga live about two months ago. They were great, I was at the front row of the concert! The only problem I had, was the sound went off for the singer for one song! The soundman wasn't too good.

WOW, normally top notch. Never been disappointed in a Saga concert. Updating previous post, original singer Michael Sadler is back.
