Rockin' Max and the Rock Band 'Elixir'


This most unusual Wade NatWest piggy bank came to our attention quite recently. He is an original Wade Maxwell who has undergone the rock treatment and is now affectionately known as Rockin' Max!!

The story behind this fascinating character goes back to the release of the band's debut album in 1986. Their manager had contacts with the marketing department of NatWest Bank and also the suppliers of NatWest piggy banks and, following the release of the album, Phil Denton the band's guitarist, was presented with this special Maxwell. It is assumed that he was 'adapted' by someone at Wade, although they deny that officially it has anything to do with them!

This first public debut of Rockin' Max coincides with the bands recent re-launch and, whilst the new album 'The Idol' will be available to all rock fans, regrettably Max is staying with the band and is not for sale!!
