    Killers: individual album judgement by yours truly

    Never heard anything about Clive's picking up a guitar, keyboards or even going for backing vocals. So i can talk fearless that he only contributed with drums/percussion. However... behind the Iron curtains there's always that glove waving the possibility of Maiden giving more credit to a member...

    Killers: individual album judgement by yours truly

    Yes Jenkin's Barn is a joke. And I expected people to come and talk on IMPub about this, because it's a debatable track list I did. In these days the most you see on FB are "likes" and no one questioning... I disagree about Purkis. According to him it was his idea to have an intro on the...

    Adrian Smith

    Somebody tell the press about this other gig by the supersecretnonamepowerhouse Adrian Smith group. May they display it on an outdoor next to you! Fans hungry for more information about the group surely can wait until the end of this year to something to happen soon! (oh the irony...)

    'burning Ambition'

    Some may find strange that Smiler refused to do Burning Ambition because of the alleged time changes. At the time Steve had expanded the song to something like a 8-min rock prog, so they were not exagerating in not wanting to play that!

    Steve 'Loopy' Newhouse's blog

    Jmaster, recently Paul Cairns found another picture of the outside of Spaceward Studios at the time of the ST recordings. You'll see his dog in the snow or something like that, which is on his FB profile (I won't post it here w/out his permission), it's worth taking a look...

    Lineups, Live Songs and Productivity in the 1970s

    I wrote Martin Bushell to ask him about his involvement with Maiden and he was actually a member of the band! He auditioned for them in May '79, replacing Paul Cairns, and in his own words he "got the job". He only took part in rehearsals. Bushell is never mentioned in any offical biography.

    Lineups, Live Songs and Productivity in the 1970s

    Magnus, what do you want to know? I read this Metallian interview many years ago but never figured it out. Jeff Summers is refering to Maiden's formative years, so my best bet for any truth behind it is that they were there before Steve founded (called it) Iron Maiden. At those times there...

    There were a couple more songs who disappeared from the set list... The funky (almost reggae) Floating song, banned in 1978 and returning in 1981 in hm style as Purgatory. Also Burning Ambition in 1979, being replaced by Running Free.

    Nicko McBrain

    No way! McKitty was a Hendrix-type band from the end of the 70s and The Kissoon bros. were a crooner duo from the late 60s.

    Another Nicko's record unearthed from the time when he worked for Young Blood records as a session musician... MAC & KATIE KISSOON - Love Will Keep Us Together (b/w I'm Up in Heaven), 1973. The single was recorded a few years before CAPTAIN & TENILLE's famous version, but it didn't chart in...

    Lineups, Live Songs and Productivity in the 1970s

    All that info surfaced some time after Dennis Willcock got back to life in 2014. Maiden77 took the front, but me and a very few knew that years before. I guess most of that info is correct, albeit "The Pit" (or "Endless Pit") was called like this only in Gypsy's Kiss. In Maiden it started as...
