One thought on “Talking Metal 778 Simon Wright, Nazareth, Uriah Heep & Lance King

  1. Hi Mark,

    I don’t know if you remember me, I’m Jonathan Turner lately of the UAE and now of Beijing China! We moved over here with the family in August as we wanted a change and I found a job as a training manager here. Anyway I’m writing to apolgise for dropping off Patreon. It wasn’t intentional it was because the accouint I had linked to it got closed when we left the UAE and now I have a Chinese account, which is impossible to use as it’s all in Chinese! Anyway, I promise I’ll get it sorted and keep up the good work. I’ve also included my new email address below ans my old one was linked to my job in the UAE. By the way metal is pretty underground in China but there is a dedicated following, I’ve seen mostly hardcore bands including Cancer Bats and some Chinese death metal, but there’s not much hard rock unfortunately.
