Requiem (We Will Remember)

Album: Solid Ball Of Rock (1986)
  • According to the official video: "This song is dedicated to the memory of the many artists and performers who left behind a great legacy... We will remember!"
  • A blistering track with a terrific riff, in his memoir Never Surrender..., frontman Biff Byford says he was thinking specifically of Phil Lynott - whom he knew - and Bon Scott. It is about remembering great rock musicians at their best. Biff said he was disdainful of some of the poor quality posthumous Hendrix releases: "I turned the whole band onto AC/DC but I don't want to hear Bon Scott singing Christmas carols that someone once taped in the studio."
  • The album version runs to 5 minutes 16 seconds. The third track on the 1991 Solid Ball Of Rock album, it was co-written by band members Byford, Graham Oliver, Nibbs Carter and Nigel Glockler.
  • The 4:36 single version was released on the Virgin label backed by "Altar Of The Gods." >>
