    Legacy of the beast pinball machine

    To be fair, these machines are expensive to manufacture and are built in small numbers - pushing the retail price up further. Plus, of course, Maiden needs to take their licencing slice. They're mainly intended to be placed within a business like a bar rather than sit in someone's living room.

    Iron Maiden on top of the pops UK

    I was there for the Run to the Hills performance. They did the song three times, Bruce asked for the third and final take as he wasn't happy with his performance one the first two. It was a great crowd; all FC members as it was a special recording just for Run to the Hills rather than being a...

    Maidenfans Meetups 2019

    I'm taking my family to the Vancouver show, and heading to the Tacoma gig by myself. I'm keen to meet up for Tacoma, especially if people are interested in travelling from Seattle as a group.

    So, Bruce was just a live guest star on the New Zealand TV show The Project. He was talking about the Legacy of the Beast tour. He said "we obviously haven't brought this tour to New Zealand........ YET." Colour me excited!!

    Maiden United

    Wow, I just listened to the ep. Amazing version of the song. For the first time I consider a cover to be superior to the original Maiden recording. They have put so much effort into this release, brilliantly melding the music with story telling. Wudstik sounds fantastic too! So much emotion in...

    Charlotte the Harlot and Inflation Rates

    Perhaps the 15 quid is some sort of combo deal? So in '82 the one flat fee paid for both services, which represents good value for the customer. Must have made transaction logistics more difficult though. Handing over a five or ten pound note is nice and simple. Dealing with a twenty is a...

    What are the IM-related items that you've bought but never listen to/watch/use?

    I am currently at my desk, at work, wearing a Somewhere Back In Time tour shirt. I am a manager within a large IT consultancy. Lots of metal fans here, so I get more compliments than grief. Actually helped forge a couple of new friendships with people that I wouldn't normally interact with.

    Behold! The most useless item in my entire Maiden collection! It's from 2005 I believe....

    It's from later. Not actually the Dinky brand; I'll take a photo tonight and post it, just for the giggles.

    What are the IM-related items that you've bought but never listen to/watch/use?

    Okay, that post made me smile :-) I have a drawer with similar items; a wood print of The Clairvoyant artwork, a sealed Aces High dinky car, a 7th Son pewter badge, and a cassette tape of old interviews recorded off the radio. They are of no monetary value and I haven't looked at them for more...

    What are the IM-related items that you've bought but never listen to/watch/use?

    I have a large collection of original pressing vinyl and picture discs. I have listened at least once to all but one of them; The X Factor on double clear vinyl. I bought it ten years after release as it wasn't released in my home country. It is one of more expensive items in my collection, so I...

    Do you have a segment you love in a song you dont?

    Dave's solo in From Here to Eternity. Can't stand the song, but the solo is adrenaline-pumping.

    Here we go again...Iron Maiden sued over the rights of 6 songs

    I first learnt Dennis Willcock's name in around 1986. This was as a young kid, Maiden-mad and hungry for any information I could find about the band in magazines etc. I knew Dennis' name, had a couple of pictures of him, and knew the years that he was in the band. All of this I learnt from the...
