    IB, anyone?

    I finished my IB diploma in 2004 here on the Canadian west coast. Didn't do that great... 27/45 I got totally burnt out by the end of it too. Didn't care if I passed or not anymore(since I was going to get my regular diploma anyway). If I had the choice again I wouldn't have done it. I didn't...

    Materials That Inspired Maiden

    This thread has been started as a way of listing for quick reference and discussing the books/novels, movies, etc that Maiden have written songs off of loosely. So please tell me what you've watched/read that Maiden has credited for their songs and what you thought. I've read 7th Son of a 7th...

    Does Bruce Make Iron Maiden?

    *Repeat* I find Maiden newbs often credit Bruce as "THE FACE OF MAIDEN", until they become more interested in reading song credits and see that without Harris there is no vision, no realization. Not to mention that Steve is one of the best bass players ever.

    Did I Just Buy A Fake Maiden Shirt?

    The thing I notice more is the proximity of the "I" to the letters adjacent to it. Doesn't look horrible though, just plain. Thats what you wanted though, right?

    Oh, well thats pretty cheap. I guess a $600 guitar would be a step up then. I just figure if you know you're serious about playing guitar, might as well get yourself a mid range one instead of graduating guitars several times. I agree looks aren't everything, but it gives incentive to play your...

    The difference is quality control. The more expensive American Strats have more time and care taken into their construction. You might get fret buzz on the non-American ones for example, which would make chords sound bad. All Strats have bolt on necks, but an American Strat has better sustain...

    Kevin Shirley's 4th Studio Diary Just Posted

    I know they have to be upbeat about an upcoming album(and of course excited since its new material), but I always find it funny how things are always better than ever for every album. By now I should have thrown out BNW and DoD what with this "more groove than ever".

    Is Maiden's Music Really Better Live?

    I have only seen Maiden at Ozzfest last summer, but even if Bruce's voice didn't stack up to the studio recordings, the guitar playing beat every single live, studio and bootleg recording I ever heard when I was drunk/stoned/etc! Up the Irons!

    Question For Guitarists

    Different guitars yield different tones. The most common example being a Stratocaster which gives a bright, clean sound from its single coil pickups while a Les Paul gives you fat, smooth tone. I'm of the opinion that once you're running your guitar through a power amp, compressor, and whatever...

    Psychological Questions (?)

    You need to pace yourself with strict guidelines when you discover a new band! -Purchase of a new band's shirts must only occur once every three weeks -Reading biography or detailed history on the band must be done at same pace it has occured I.E. to speak about Maiden in their Powerslave...

    Spore - The Best Computer Game Ever?

    Wow, haven't heard anything of this game. Looks pretty cool! I want to consume other cells! My favourite PC game ever was Deus Ex: The Conspiracy. Second one sucked big time though.

    Official Confirmed Now

    Worse than that, they only visited Montreal and Toronto which are practically next to each other. They really ought to have at least one gig on the westcoast at the largest venue they can find. Mind you they scheduled those concerts in between Ozzfest dates, so they didn't have that much liberty.

    I can't remember the link, but there was some french site of Maiden tattoos with huge Live After Death across the chest. Pretty dedicated. Myself, I think I'd do the Eddie from SiT! [img src=\"style_emoticons/[#EMO_DIR#]/smile.gif\" style=\"vertical-align:middle\" emoid=\":)\" border=\"0\"...

    Just finished the Dark Tower series by Stephen King. Its LotR meets The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly. Thats pretty much what King said. Enjoyed a ton though.

    my dream is finished (Now with sound sample!)

    Do you mean a checkered bass of black and white? In repetition, very cool bass. I wish Adrian Smith had such a custom guitar that he played that I could do the same as you.
