Jeremy Clarkson said he likes them as he is a fan of 'Dad rock' also I read that Frank Skinner and Adrian Chiles like to blast out Forever Delayed while driving up the M5 to the Baggies games

I remember seeing Richard Ellis, who played that Welsh Bloke from Eastenders at the Nynex in '97.

A friend spoke to him once around the time of know your enemy and he was loving that album. He definitely was a fan anyway
I read *One Fine Day In the middle of the night* and the main character plays The Holy Bible in the car. So not only is my favourite band mentioned in a novel but my favourite album too...the man has taste

I remember an interview with Lauren Laverne back in her Kenickie days were she said she met JDB and he had a very strong handshake. They're on the thanks list on the first Kenickie album too.

Stve McDonald from Corrie is a massive fan. And Graham from Corrie must be too as we saw him at the Manchester gig on Thursday!

Wasn't it once said somewhere that either Prince William or Prince Harry liked them? And this was after First Republic and Sculpture of Man...

Any evidence for that? Just wondering, as I'm a big TLE fan!

DJ / Producer Erol Alkan is a massive fan, lists The Holy Bible as one of his main influences & picked YES as a track on Rob Da Bank's A-Z.

Extreme? Never had them down as a fan.

Years ago, around the time of THB, Motley Crue's bassist Nikki Sixx said he was a fan. I remember a Kerrang article in which he said that he wanted to cover one of their songs during one of their gigs (this was when Motley went "grunge").
