– Met Bill Aucoin (manager of KISS during 1973–1982) backstage at KISS’s 1980 Wembley Arena concerts. Girl had just pulled out of the support slot and Aucoin asked if Silverwing could step in instead. Unfortunately it didn’t happened as guitarist Stuart McFarlane wasn’t there at the time.
– Silverwing’s most memorable song ‘Rock And Roll Are Four Letter Words’ appeared in the following compilations:
“New Electric Warriors” (LP, Logo Records, 1980)
“Lightnin’ To The Nations NWOBHM 25th Anniversary Collection” (3CD, Sanctuary, 2005)
