Again, I agree with a lot of what you say!

No doubts they all had a following, but certainly for me, at that age, it was as a result of exposure in things like Sounds and subequently Kerrang that championed the NWOBHM, that the likes of Gillan, Rainbow et al came to my attention.

Mebbe that's the difference between our perceptions - I first heard all that stuff at around that time, but thru older mates playing me them - entirely independent of NWOBHM.

It's interesting tho - coz me & me mates got into rock around that time but seperately from NWOBHM, I've always felt that the importance of NWOBHM was overestimated/hyped at the time - and in retrospect.

Perhaps I've been seeing it from a slightly skewed view, just as a result of my personal experiences....
