    Iron Maiden News, Links, and Interviews

    Pointless in terms of critiquing the band maybe, but as a guitar player and avid fan of the 3 styles of playing going in in the band I find the isolated tracks invaluable. There are so many fun live-isms that have grown into the songs over the years and I really enjoy adding them into my own...

    I agree there are a lot of mistakes that they left in, and I think that's great. It's a shame that they don't mix live stuff the same anymore (Dave left, Janick right and Adrian "center").

    Have you ever checked out Adrian's isolated guitar audio? It's on YouTube and it's fantastic, so many little details!

    Bruce Dickinson

    Are you allowed to say what kind of guitar tunings we can expect across the album? 6 string E standard? 6 string Drop D? 6 string D standard? 6 string baritone in B? 7 string anything? Are most songs in a common tuning or is it all over the place? Thank you!

    Ever notice how Steve doesn’t write “riffs” anymore?

    I feel that AMOLAD did a few fun 3 guitar things that weren't just harmonies. I think it's the best guitar album and overall album they've ever put out.

    Bruce Dickinson

    Thanks! I asked him on Twitter many years ago about playing King In Crimson and Trumpets of Jericho live, he said they were Drop D guitars with a Boss pitch shift pedal to take them down to A but it looks like he hasn't been on Twitter in a couple of years. Thanks for the info.

    Bruce Dickinson

    Cool, thank you for the clarification! Where did he say this, and did he mention anything else about gear or tunings used on the album? Thanks again!

    Bruce Dickinson

    Afterglow is either a 7 string in B Standard or a 6 string dropped way down -- the lowest Bruce has gone before is down to A with King In Crimson and Trumpets of Jericho. He's had E standard and Drop D across his other material as well, I wonder what the bulk of the new album will be in, tuning...

    What isolated track of any Maiden song would interest you the most?

    Can we request Bruce solo stuff? Isolating Roy and Adrian guitar tracks on Scream For Me Brazil would be pretty rad. Just saying. :D

    Best quality bootleg of each tour? And Long Beach 1985 question.

    A soundboard or perhaps radio broadcast recording of the AMOLAD tour. It's absolutely criminal that they never released a professionally mixed show from this tour, as to me it stands as their all time best album. Dave is mixed left, Janick is mixed right and Adrian's "center" comes and goes...

    It's sad how out of shape Dave has let himself become, aging and touring can't be easy on the body but when you let your health deteriorate like that I can't imagine it makes things any easier. I used to think that Nicko would be the one whose health would be the thing that stops the band but it...

    Where does Iron Maiden stand in your top 10 bands of all time?

    Metallica mixes up their setlist every night of every tour and doesn't shy away from the more challenging and obscure stuff in their back catalogue. Maiden tours on the same set list of safe songs for 2 or 3 years at a clip and minus the odd obscure track it's kept pretty tame, they're hardly...

    Where does Iron Maiden stand in your top 10 bands of all time?

    They were my undisputed #1 for many years but their decision to do multi-year oldies tours ("we'll never become a cabaret act" they said, as they became a cabaret act) has really hurt their standing in my books. AMOLAD was peak Maiden for me and that ranks as one of the best albums of all time...

    New Iron Maiden studio album LEGACY OF THE BEAST

    I feel like he could do a pretty good version similar to the way Floor Jansen sings it.

    Live-isms: "I wonder why they don't..."

    Yeah, there's another one that I think we can chalk up to them just not listening to studio recordings before rehearsing. Phantom's on the setlist, they all know their parts and off they go.

    Your Maiden blasphemy

    Aside from some occasionally lazy solos Dave's playing is just fine, that wasn't the point I was making. I'm saying that looking towards the longevity of the band I just wouldn't be surprised if Nicko being too old isn't the thing that causes them to retire from touring - it's not fat shaming to...

    Live-isms: "I wonder why they don't..."

    Hey guys! This is kind of the flip side of the musical cues that you love thread but with an eye specifically to things that they change or omit during live performances that are a bit of a head scratcher considering that they've got 3 guitarists. I'll start off with a few: 1) Powerslave - no...
