    Bruce Dickinson

    I think I shamefully sold it for about $100USD back in the early 2000s...along with my original X Factor UK import LP, my mail-in Soundhouse Tapes CD (from the 98 remasters), and I think all the rarer Bruce LPs I had at the time: Balls, Skunkworks, and Accident of Birth. If I recall, I sold it...

    I have three...would've had four if I hadn't sold the original vinyl in my poorer days...and I must've sold off my original CD I bought on release day. '98 Remaster 2CD Japanese release Lenticular cover CD

    Bruce Dickinson

    Interesting bits about Roy not being on the tour (he had a lot going on at home and in the studio) and also the remixes (ALL solo albums are going Dolby Atmos, and some are getting "reimagined," like BtP getting heavier--oh, and he's rethinking adding Skunkworks songs to the set).

    Bruce Dickinson

    I know what you mean. It troubles me deeply when I think about the fact a man in his sixties wrote some of the sexiest guitar lines I can think of in Hell on Earth. :S

    Bruce Dickinson

    Yep, and he couldn't find the recording of it in time for the Best Of. I wasn't sure whether it was from the Keith Olsen album or the previous one where Skin was backing him, but oh well. Bummer!

    Bruce Dickinson

    All of those are on my playlist so far except for Ghost of Cain, which was included in the tracklist of the US release of AoB, so it's never really struck me as a bonus track, even though it kind of is. I might have to look at a Z-centric album and then maybe cobble together some pre-Z stuff...

    Bruce Dickinson

    I'm actually trying to assemble an "album" of album-quality B-sides Bruce has come up with and somehow make it flow and feel like an album. Surprisingly, none of these masterpieces made the cut. :lol: That said, it's interesting that Bruce has been asked about his '93 departure again recently...

    Bruce Dickinson

    I'm going to have to relisten to that interview where he said 80% of something or other was done in one take. After I posted that he'd said 80% of the vocals for the whole album was done one take, a couple said he probably meant just Sonata, and I thought, "eh, maybe so." Now I'm starting to...

    Bruce Dickinson

    I get the disappointment, but I never saw Roy as an integral part of Bruce's live act. He did exactly one tour with them, hired out the Guru on the next tour, I don't think he did the 2002 gigs where Bruce brought Chris Dale back, and no tour for Tyranny. Granted, this is coming from someone...

    Bruce Dickinson

    This. The fact H didn't appear on Tyranny is probably the same reason he's not on Mandrake: because he probably doesn't feel like he needs to be on it. I still maintain that him appearing on AoB and TCW was the same as Bruce's--get reunion talk started, because both wanted to rejoin...

    Bruce Dickinson

    I was honestly surprised Roy was on the touring lineup to begin with. I forget why specifically he didn't tour Chemical and got that weird Guru guy, but I vaaaaaguely remember Bruce mentioning in press (in the Chemical era) that Roy doesn't like touring all that much, and would rather stick...

    Blaze Bayley

    Got through Circle of Stones today, and here's a brief snippet of my thoughts on my single run-through of it (I'll add spoilers since we're technically in pre-release) :

    Bruce Dickinson

    So far, I haven't heard anything about remastering any albums aside from BtP and Skunkworks. I asked Chris Dale on his Skunkworks FB page, and he's under the assumption it's for an atmos 3D mix. He also believed Roy wasn't doing that one, although I think Bruce said in the past week or so Roy...

    Blaze Bayley

    Ooh, the new album showed up--decently quick getting it here in the US, considering I hopped on and ordered it when I saw a bit ago that people were already getting theirs in the mail. Looks great, aside from either a design standpoint or a forgetful standpoint that there's no band/album...

    Bruce Dickinson

    Eh, I've seen him steal a fan's hat in front of the entire audience, so that doesn't surprise me.

    Blaze Bayley

    The part about it not being as accessible as what fans were used to, I get that. I got heavy into Maiden in '93, found out Blaze was coming in, and hunted down as much Wolfsbane as I could find to see what he sounded like. Knowing he didn't sound like Bruce, I adjusted my expectations, and was...

    HUGE IRON MAIDEN BOOTLEG COLLECTION VERSION 3 (ADDED 2023)

    I just went to page one and your link (I was using my old bookmark for it), and yep, loaded right up. Thanks very much! Oh, and as a side note, you (or anyone else swinging through) wouldn't know of a similar file database of Bruce solo bootlegs, would you?

    HUGE IRON MAIDEN BOOTLEG COLLECTION VERSION 3 (ADDED 2023)

    Sadly, no. Still getting the folder link no longer available message, then pushes me to the general login page.

    HUGE IRON MAIDEN BOOTLEG COLLECTION VERSION 3 (ADDED 2023)

    Hopped on to give it a try, and still says it's down. :/ I'll check back in a while.

    MAIDEN TRIVIA OF THE DAY

    Glad to hear it! If you're thinking of using AI, there are some avenues (like a company called Eleven Labs) where you can designate a different voice for certain things, like if you have a female POV chapter, and then a male POV chapter, you can use a female voice and then switch to a male in...
