"Signing off with 'Fox On The Run' they return for the mightiest of encores and staples of every partygoers repertoire - 'Blockbuster' and 'The Ballroom Blitz'. 'Blockbuster' was the Sweet’s only UK number 1 but is probably eclipsed by the Blitz, the finest air guitar track in the land, as the track of the night." That was part of our take last Christmas at Andy Scott's Sweet gig at London's Islington Assembly Hall, and despite the absence of original bass guitarist Steve Priest, who died on Thursday at the age of 72, the night was testament to the band's undoubted musical legacy and longevity - indeed they were much more than a Glam Rock band. Therefore today's Video Of The Day is dedicated to Priest. "Are You Ready Steve?"
