The Saints not only celebrate the British Rock scene of the 1960s and 1970s, they also revel in the mysteries of ancient culture that surround several significant stone structures throughout the British Isles - all through (via) the brilliant use of brilliant rock & roll music.
The Saints recently embarked on A Quest to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Stonehenge, where they performed their famous Arthurian-themed musical histories and engaged in the time-honoured tradition of ritual sword-play. Although King Arthur himself was unable to attend (just as he was unable to attend the ancient knighting ceremony that took place at this same sacred site a long, long time ago, The Saints chose to honour him through song and sword, music and myth. The band wished to connect, acoustically, with the Ancient Earth Energy of Stonehenge in order to demonstrate their reverence for the History and Heritage of this sacred place. The experience was both personal and spiritual.
The Saints believe strongly in honouring history in a manner that fits a pluralistic society where many cultures, age groups,and belief systems can exist, side-by-side; a society where civility and tolerance are essential. History is in dire need of this kind of open-minded exploration to maintain its relevance and honesty. The Saints of British Rock believe Heritage and History should be valued according to the needs and aspirations of contemporary society—not isolated as static curatorial objects—so that these monuments can be validated and renewed for future generations to enjoy and protect.
As you go forth unto your own quests remember to bear in mind the acquired wisdom of The Saints of British Rock: That which has been told to you by somebody else must be taken as truth. Create the future today so that we may enjoy the past tomorrow. And have a brilliant, brilliant time on the way.
