Thinking it was nice that the 90-93 lineup got back together for a few shows in 1999.
Janick doing a fine solo there.
Short lived reunion
Boston was one of the shows Adrian missed. I was so bummed he wasn't there, but that show was incredible.
Blaze Bayley era live album. Sao Paulo 96, Gothenburg 95 or Stockholm 98.
A compilation from the 2 tours consisting of songs from The X Factor + Virtual XI, with some other songs Blaze did well on like Wrathchild, Running Free, Iron Maiden and Afraid to Shoot Strangers etc would be fine. But there is no market for it though, a record label would find it more profitable to put out something else.
To be fair there are many releases by bands that by the look of it dont have a market. An example would be the latest Black Sabbath best of album. Some releases are either cash grabs or fan base pleasers.
But isn't there a big market for some Black Sabbath hits? I think those albums do really well. All of Maiden's "Greatest Hits" records have done well too.
My point was more to the fact that you can go two ways, you know? Either totally for the money or for things that fans ask for. For example a Somewhere on Tour live album or a Blaze Bayley era live album
The albums that didn't sell tour?
I just thought of one:
Janick's solo(s) on Hallowed Be Thy Name > Adrian's on the original album
Thinking it was great that Adrian only got 2 writing credits on Brave New World, so that Dave was allowed more input on the album, with 3 credits.
Probably the most well balanced Maiden album with writing credits.
Yeah, Janick often does a better solo than Adrian did on the album.
And there is a reason why that changed after DOD.
True. Even the former singer managed to get some of his material on the album (and at the same time get paid for it, unlike the Beckett guys).
What the credits should look like:
Dream of Mirrors (Bayley, Gers, Harris)
The Nomad (Murray, Harris, Beckett)
Listening to FOTD album today, I actually really like the production. I'm not sure what it is about it but I like it a lot
The vocal style is hit and miss for me
The Great Unknown - the best track on The Book of Souls.
I think Dave has the worst guitar tone of the Three Amigos.
