    Adrian, Janick and Dave's guitars and Steve's basses

    Is it a Piezo pickup Adrian uses in this song?

    Aces High

    Well, I don't really consider Bruce's voice, because I ment "LIVE live", not any recorded stuff. It's a great sing-along-song for the audience and reason to go wild! When standing 10 meters from the stage and hearing Churchill's speech go off, I dont really think "I wonder if Bruce will be able...

    Paschendale

    If I had to choose just one Maiden song to award this 10-pointer, it would probably be Paschendale. The lyrics really brings me back to the battlefield with all the terror, makes me feel like I was there. And the melodies are heavy but at the same time melodical, I especially appreciate the...

    Aces High

    You took the words out of my mouth, thats exactly what I would say too. It's a great song live, but I never find myself listening to it anymore. It's just not that interesting. I'd also give it a 7/10.

    Nicko's drum kits over the years

    This picture scares me It makes me sad to realise that Maiden wont be forever, and that Nicko is 66 this year. I hope he turns out to be immortal, and that his arms and feets may never deteriorate

    Nicko's drum kits over the years

    One new pedal per tour? Im pretty certain that he used a specific old pedal all the time. I dont have any pictures right now, but if you look at this video at 2:51 you get a pretty good look at this pedal You can see that it is an old version of DW 5000, like in this picture (but not a double...

    Nicko's drum kits over the years

    I wonder why he switched from DW5000 to DW9000, maybe it broke and was hard to find a replacement? I mean, his DW5000 must have been from the 80's By the way Ive heard that he used the "Turbo" version and not "Accelerator"... but that was long time ago so I cant recall any source

    Nicko's drum kits over the years

    SBIT is probably my favorite kit Challenge: Also what bass pedal he used on every drumkit AFAIK he used Ludwig Speed King in 80's and then his old retro DW 5000, and then switched to DW 9000 recently

    Why did Adrian change his solo in Stranger in a Strange Land on Ed Hunter tour 99?

    Hey man yes I've listened to it a couple more time and you are right, he does add some cool features that isn't there on the original. Surely it compensates a tiny bit, but I still miss that original blues lick! :)

    youre absolutely right, nice find my guess is that they add it because they're playing live and want to add some more color to the sound. They maybe thought it would be a bit too quiet without the double fills.

    Your favorite 10 seconds of Maiden?

    You've been visited by the devil and you can no longer listen to any Maiden songs. Except a 10 second section of your choice. What would you choose?
