Slade legend Dave Hill is looking for a crazee new frontman to fill the platform boots of Noddy Holder.
Current singer Mal McNulty is looking to step back from the role originally held by the Walsall-born star, who quit the band in 1991.
But Hill said he had given up on trying to coax Holder and bassist Jim Lea back into the band after more than 20 years.
“I don’t think it will ever happen,” he said.
“Some people could be quite scared of the job – nobody replaces Nod because of his outstanding vocal capacity.
“Mal came up to me and said: ‘You know what, Dave? Maybe it’s time I went – I feel that maybe it’s time for a younger man’.
“I would like somebody 40-ish who knows the period. There’s a guy in Australia who sounds just like Noddy, but that’s not really very practical.
