    Daily Song: Scorpions - Coast to Coast

    A good instrumental piece from the Lovedrive album. Michael Schenker only played on 3 songs for this album... Another Piece of Meat, Lovedrive, and this one. It's a good showcase for the Schenker brothers. Incidentally, I always thought the cover art for the Lovedrive album was pretty classic...

    The Artist Formerly Known as Stallion Duck Ages...

    Happy Birthday Mosh! Wish I played guitar as well as you when I was 15... hell, I wish I could play that well today...

    Random Song: Budgie - Breadfan

    Great tune by a very influential Welsh power trio that was very big in my part of Canada, although I don't think they made it too big in the U.S. Metallica did a pretty good cover version, but the original is ass kicking. A high 9 from me...

    Random Song: KISS - She

    I guess I'm up again... I'll make sure to refrain from being first poster for awhile. Anyway... This is where it all really began for me. KISS Alive was my first real rock n roll album. A buddy from junior high school impressed me with his drumkit and a bedroom that was floor to ceiling KISS...

    Random Song: UFO - Love to Love

    I've posted on another thread how most power ballads leave me praying to be struck deaf... Love to Love is an exception for a couple of reasons... 1. The second guitar solo qualifies as my favourite guitar solo of all time... by anyone. Why Herr Schenker's name is not mentioned in the same...

    Help! I need a high - res image of the Benjamin Breeg artwork...

    Any of you who have browsed the thread containing postman's woodcarvings of Eddie are probably as impressed as I am. I've commissioned him to create one of his masterpieces for me with TROBB artwork as the subject. The problem: neither of us are able to find an image with a high enough...

    Musings of an old headbanger...

    As a fairly recent member of this forum, it has not taken long for me to realize that as a Maidenfan, I seem to be quite out of step with a sizeable portion of the other members regarding likes and dislikes. Not too surprising considering the differences in age, background, location, etc. What...

    Ed Force One Crashes in the Alps With All on Board Lost...

    Steve Harris, who had planned on catching up with the rest of the band the following day, had remained in England to attend to a family emergency. Now, in tribute to his five deceased bandmates, Steve has decided to do a huge outdoor farewell concert, and has to choose five musicians worthy to...

    Bruce's versions of Di'anno and Bayley era songs

    Let me start by stating that I think Bruce Dickinson is one of the greatest rock n roll vocalists ever, as well as THE greatest frontman to ever grace a stage. That being said, I have yet to hear one of his versions of songs off the Iron Maiden and Killers albums that I can consider superior to...

    Who is the dancer onstage during 22 Acacia Avenue (Beast Over Hammersmith)?

    The blonde bit of hotness strutting her stuff in front of the lads is a bit of an anomaly... besides Eddie, who else has shared a Maiden spotlight? I witnessed this tour when it came to Canada (Winnipeg, July '82) but honestly can't remember if she came onstage that night or not. I was a very...

    Maiden's multi-generational fan base - what's the magic?

    I find it quite remarkable how this band appeals to such a wide variety of ages. Last night I spent a large part of the evening in deep discussion with my employer's son, who is 14. I'm 46. The subject: Iron Maiden in general and The Final Frontier in particular. The lad and I had absolutely...

    Band brawl onstage... who would be left standing?

    I remember being in a bar years ago, when the band started beating the shit out of each other after an error filled set. Suppose it was Maiden... my bets would be on Steve and Dave in the final with Steve probably coming out on top. Janick, Adrian and Nicko look pretty wispy, and Bruce isn't a...
