    Bruce Dickinson: Rock ‘n’ Roll Warmonger

    I just can't believe that Bruce's working-class-Tory-toff delusion is now grown so great that he can say stuff like 'thinking in the truest sense of the word outside the envelope' with a straight face AND get paid for it. BUT he did help make my favourite album of all time, and what he does in...

    Iron Maiden Autumn 1979 studio recordings

    I think the general practice for BBC Sessions was to record live with limited time afterwards for overdubbing depending on how organized the band was in the time available. I've read some stories over the years from bands at the BBC who couldn't get their act together or wasted time on the day...

    Steve 'Loopy' Newhouse's blog

    I'm finding this thread absolutely fascinating! I note that the street sign in the picture is Victoria Street. According to the Spaceward Studios website, Spaceward was indeed situated on Victoria Street. Off topic, but I could just go for a pint of Greene King Old Speckled Hen too!

    Steve 'Loopy' Newhouse's blog

    I knew all this sounded familiar! http://forum.maidenfans.com/threads/paul-cairns-mad-mac-played-on-the-soundhouse-tapes.20885/ Perhaps that's why I'm making a Cairns/Mad Mac connection. BUT the picture of Mad Mac included on the Early Years DVD tallies with Loopy's blog description of Paul...

    Nicko McBrain album from ~20 years ago?

    Just spotted this thread - there was a 7" of "Rhythm Of The Beast" c/w "Beehive Boogie" and a shaped picture disc of "Rhythm Of The Beast" c/w "McBrain Damage" which is a "Listen With Nicko" style bit. Worth picking up!

    Steve 'Loopy' Newhouse's blog

    Surely they have, though? Isn't Paul Cairns the "Mad Mac" guy, referred to by Maiden in the past? Of course, I could be mis-remembering here! More generally, the first time I hear the Soundhouse "Prowler", my first thought was that the opening riff didn't sound like Dave at all. I suppose...

    Maiden England Double Header? [pure speculation!]

    I've been thinking a lot about the potential release of a Maiden England DVD. As the band is currently on a Seventh Son trip touring-wise, could the time be right for a combined DVD?. Just imagine it - a DVD reissue of the original Maiden England VHS, combined with a brand new concert from the...

    Yet ANOTHER best of - From Fear To Eternity

    I wonder how much money is to be made for Maiden in CD sales these days. They've always been pretty honest that they've made their money on the road, in ticket sales and t-shirts. It used to be that a band would tour to promote the album. From what Rod said, it sounds like they're viewing this...

I've lurked here quite a bit over the years so I know how much you all love this kind of news. Now to sit back and watch you all dissect the track...
