    Which song was written first... for all of the 16 albums

    Yeah, I think it was kinda like that... some in the band were paid, but others (allegedly) contributed substantially & weren't. Who knows for sure? But clearly, the lyrics were lifted... at least, a few lines... and Steve / IM had to open their wallets. I know in Hollywood, there are...

    Which song was written first... for all of the 16 albums

    Allegedly, so was Beckett! I dunno if there are standard union/guild rules for songwriting credits, or if Blaze somehow contracted it all away. Seems to me, tho', if a band fired my ass & then used my original lyrics or music to monetize a new album / tour, I might not go so softly into the...

    Which song was written first... for all of the 16 albums

    In the aftermath of the "Hallowed" / Beckett legal debacle, I kinda suspect we're gonna hear about this again. Might not be this year. Might not be this decade. But if Blaze is telling the truth...

    Iron Maiden studio album 17 rumours and speculations

    I'd buy it. How bitchin' would it be if the pepperoni's are all arranged in the shape of Eddie's head? BTW, we have a big frozen pizza brand in the States called "Red Baron Pizza." Why they chose to name an Italian food product after a German military vet from a World War is beyond me... but...

    Iron Maiden studio album 17 rumours and speculations

    There's pain/work/joy in writing & recording new music, and pain/work/joy to staging a long-ass global tour. Selling new music and/or selling performances are your top 2 options for monetization, generally speaking. So... why do so many older bands concentrate waaaay more on the touring than...

    Best time to catch a concert?

    Obvious answer: Whenever you can But... for those of y'all who've had the privilege & pleasure of catching multiple shows at different legs of a long, map-eating Iron Maiden tour, I was wondering: When does the band sound best? Like, does Bruce's voice deteriorate a bit throughout, so he's...

    Iron Maiden studio album 17 rumours and speculations

    From a marketing perspective, perhaps IM would be wisest to release / monetize individual songs, then throw 'em in a new album (along with a few unreleased songs) half-a-year later. So... IM could release a "Day of the Dead" song -- along with a Day of the Dead beer, shirts, DoD gaming add-ons...

    Iron Maiden studio album 17 rumours and speculations

    Not to get too "in the weeds" (ha! such wit!), but there's a state / federal legal division in the US that can get kinda confusing. On a federal level, first under Pres. Obama & continuing with Trump, marijuana federal statutes are no longer being enforced as before. (The thought was that...

    Iron Maiden studio album 17 rumours and speculations

    Few territories??? 33 out of 50 states (including California, the biggest state via population) now has legal marijuana (medical or otherwise). That's already most of the country, and more states are following. BTW, the legal marijuana industry in the US alone is projected to hit $21.6...

    Iron Maiden studio album 17 rumours and speculations

    Well then, could I interest you in my idea for IM-branded sanitary napkins for women, "The Sea of Madness"...?

    Iron Maiden studio album 17 rumours and speculations

    With Maiden focused (least at the moment) more on growing / merchandising its brand than making a new album, I wonder if they'll get into the marijuana biz? Nowadays, lots of musicians / celebs are, with their own branded strains... and let's face it, the leap from celeb-branded beer to...

    Iron Maiden studio album 17 rumours and speculations

    Maybe it'll be an ANTI-environment album? That'd would be an interesting & brave twist. Fuck the earth! What's it ever done for us? 'Cause otherwise, I just don't think I can get into Solar-Powerslave.

    Somewhere back in time remaster

    Today at Wal-Mart, they had a "box" SiT album (CD) edition, with collectable Eddie figurine & patch included. Not sure if it's remastered or not, 'cause I was too distracted by the Eddie doll. You had to open the box to look at it, and then the store manager yells at you. He's a jerk. (BTW...

    Iron Maiden studio album 17 rumours and speculations

    My cousin's friend (Steve) told me they've recorded a song called Alexander the Greatest. I think it's about Al Yankovic. So that song might be even better.

    Iron Maiden jigsaw puzzles

    STAY AWAY: I once bought something from the Jigsaw Company, but when I opened the box, it had broken into like 500 pieces. That's horrible quality! WTF?!! My beautiful picture was ruined. Total rip-off I threw it straight in the garage.

    Flight Of Icarus - Vocals Only

    I'm sure everything you're saying is totally right... but alas, I'm a low-tech man in a high-tech world. So, a golden apple (and/or a BOGO coupon at IHOP) for whomever provides a link to these gems... thank ya! I've always been in awe of Bruce's vocals. Hearing 'em isolated is flippin'...

    Bruce Dickinson on BBC Radio 4 "Any Questions" (2nd November)

    Yesterday's liberal is today's conservative. Used to be, the belief in individual rights & limited government were pretty radical positions. (Those crazy hippies like Washington, Locke, Bastiat & Jefferson...) Today, the expansion of government control & increased regulations over personal &...
