    Why did Steve Harris fire Clive Burr ?

    Classic Rock and Metal Hammer have just released an Iron Maiden bookazine (compilation of old articles) and the infamous Classic Rock interview with Clive Burr discussed in this topic some time ago is included. https://issuu.com/futurepublishing/docs/mub2625.issuu I couldn't help but smile...

    The Genesis of Somewhere in Time

    Rod did indeed tell some fans that CSIT did not sound good live, but he was referring to the song live back in 1986-1987.

    Coronavirus

    Probably a ban of mixing with other households and limited opening times for the hospitality sector, only serving food with table service. I guess they gave the stage to the medical experts are they are the only ones with some credibility left in the sphere of the UK government...

    The Genesis of Somewhere in Time

    I doubt it. According to Steve Harris, bass and drums were recorded in the Bahamas, vocals and guitars in the Netherlands, and the mixing was done at Electric Lady Studios in New York (as said on page 258 of the Run to Hills official biography, 3rd edition). We know that sometimes the official...

    Uriah Heep

    I have not been able to find a thread about this great and massively underrated band and I am sad to open one as a result of Lee Kerslake’s death. RIP Lee. Your music lives on.

    Sounds interesting! One of the best live albums of all time.

    A Matter of Life and Death: individual album judgement by yours truly

    Wishbone Ash can be hardly considered an obscure band... Anyway, I’d rather believe what Steve says were his influences than what a fan might think were his influences.

    A Matter of Life and Death: individual album judgement by yours truly

    But they never were an influence for Maiden, whilst Wishbone Ash and Thin Lizzy were. ;)

    Guitar solos on Brave New World

    Favourite solos are probably Dave's on The Thin Line Between Love and Hate (right up there after my favourite solo of his, the first one on Powerslave) and Adrian's solos on The Wicker Man and The Mercenary

    Adrian Smith

    I have nearly finished reading the book and I am enjoying it more than I was expecting! I have no interest in fishing, but Adrian can write some nice stories and the Maiden-related bits are quite interesting and well interwoven with the narration. That being said, I am not sure I would read the...

    Adrian Smith

    On page 213 Adrian writes about finding himself with a week to kill in France in spring 2019... :D He was back in the UK in May, he writes on page 214.
