I really disagree here - the Janick haters are noisy on social media but compared to the hundreds of thousands of screaming fans that turn up for the concerts (who aren't screaming "Janick go home" so far as I can tell) I really don't think they are significant at all. (They just want you to think they are!) Also I would take a punt that most of them at least belong to the contingent of "fans" who lost interest in the '90s, then came back at the reunion expecting a fasttrack back to Powerslave (or whatever constitutes the "glory days" in their tiny minds), then they blamed Janick when that didn't happen. The issue with Blaze is different though, and there was a real issue there: whoever or whatever might have been responsible, it just sounds like his general health wasn't up to the touring they were doing. It was the same situation as with Di'Anno (although he really had brought it on himself): basically they just couldn't rely on him to be able to give a performance when he needed to, and shows were being cancelled as a result. And if they had just issued a large amount of bonds, they couldn't afford to lose money on the touring. I do like Blaze, I appreciate his contribution to Maiden (especially some of the songs he wrote - "Como Estais Amigos" is one of the best Maiden songs ever imo) and I think he did and still does have an amazing voice. I'm just not convinced he was really right as Maiden's frontman. But I'm happy for him that he is now doing his own thing on his own terms, and if he play a show near to me I shall certainly try to go and see him. All the best Blaze - wishing you success, long life and happiness!
