    According to the info shown on my Windows Media Player, Dance of Death is 'Rock', Seventh Son is 'Alternative', while FOTD, Iron Maiden, Live After Death and Powerslave are all 'Pop'.

    I'm going to need to see some proof before I can believe all of these so-called "facts".

    I'm confused. When I open a clickbait link, there's usually more cleavage.

    The story goes that he didn't play bass on Reach Out (and perhaps also That Girl). But I don't think I have ever seen a band member or some sort of official statement about this. So I am not 100% sure if it's true. Who remembers where this info come?

    Indeed. Adrian is meant to have recorded most of the guitar parts, including bass, for both those tracks. I've never seen a source either or have forgotten.

    Yes, but there is also no evidence that Bruce Dickinson wasn't naked during the recording of Somewhere in Time.
    Remaining facts are solid.
