Slade is a British glam rock band from Walsall and Wolverhampton in the West Midlands. The group was formed in the late 1960s, originally from R & B movement, under the name "The N'Betweens" and later as a folk rock band under the name "Ambrose Slade". It was not until the early 1970s that the group met with great success by taking, in a glam rock style, a series of popular songs.
The band remains one of the most characteristic groups of the glam rock movement. He was, at the height of his glory, the most popular group, commercially speaking, of the United Kingdom. This is the group that has collected the most n> 1 in the English charts during the 1970s. According to the 1999 BBC documentary It's Slade, Slade has sold more than fifty million albums worldwide.
