    LEGACY OF THE BEAST 2019

    been at a few shows like that, I've seen them make minor fuck ups in Iron Maiden! twice, once Steve with the wrong change and once Nicko with the wrong change. There's been two big equipment issues, Steve's bass rig broke in Dublin in the RDS in 2005 and there was an issue with a cable going on...

    LEGACY OF THE BEAST 2019

    That might be true for a lot of bands, and maybe they don't earn as much as their heyday, but Maiden will certainly make big money from their albums. They are too big and the fans too die hard for them not to make money. If they were struggling to make money from physical releases then you'ld...

    When did Steve really start playing power chords so much

    Yes, can't believe I overlooked that one.

    When did Steve really start playing power chords so much

    Steve's best bass lines are often in songs he doesn't write, 23:58 (best ever), Wasted Years, Sanctuary for instance.

    Metal Essentials II: Leather and Bell Bottoms (1976 - 1979) - News Of the World vs At Budokan

    I don't like doing that because I'll be subconsciously biased towards the songs I know better from At Budokan. I know this is only a fun poll on the internet, but dammit it's important we take voting seriously ;)

    Metal Essentials II: Leather and Bell Bottoms (1976 - 1979) - News Of the World vs At Budokan

    I don't have News of the World so sitting this one out, but is that not a bit unfair We Will Rock You and We are the Champions versus Hello There! LOL 2 of Queens best ever against not even a real song. Have a few Cheap Trick albums most don't really click with me but At Budokan is an absolute...

    Your Maiden blasphemy

    I think people can go over board about ranking and assigning numbered ratings to albums, instead of enhancing enjoyment it creates a negative atmosphere with people arguing about whether something is a 7.6 instead of a 6.7. Just look at the commentary forum on this site! Nevermind the attention...

    Iron Maiden studio album 17 rumours and speculations

    Sorry I didn't mean to embarrass anyone by making that joke, I was initially going to post something about Eddie being like Mr Burns in the Simpsons when he pretended to be a hippy called "Wavy Gravy" to infiltrate a gang of environmentalists, but the picture wasn't great for connecting to...

    Iron Maiden studio album 17 rumours and speculations

    Yeah I enjoyed that at the time, especially as your man is not a "metal guy" like Dom Lawson who also reviews for them. A very fair review.

    Iron Maiden studio album 17 rumours and speculations

    I guarantee that if the new album is themed around the environment and climate change that the Guardian review of that album will almost entirely consist of accusing Maiden of being hypocrites since Bruce flies planes. And then the only other sentence of the review will mention spinal tap.

    Iron Maiden studio album 17 rumours and speculations

    Here he is, up to no good causing pollution. But here he is also attacking a major cause of pollution. So in short, it's a complex issue and Eddie has conflicted opinions on the matter.

    Bond, James Bond

    Read about that in the paper today, an executive described it as "a popcorn-dropping moment" when people find out 007 is not James Bond. I hardly think people will be dropping popcorn when the cat has already been let out of the bag.

    good to see Maiden fans getting in with the theme of the album by recycling jokes.

    Iron Maiden studio album 17 rumours and speculations

    They played Dublin 13k on TBOS and Belfast 10k on LOTB, although the smaller venue was more likely due to rotating between Dublin and Belfast which they have done since 2010 than them expecting a smaller crowd.
