Stallion Duck said:I don't. Why couldn't he get Rod Smallwood as manager? Rod managed Bruce when he left didn't he? (Sorry If I'm wrong) I don't see why he can't manage Blaze.

on top of that I am expecting my first child to be born in September.
Ranko said:Oh, sorry, I didn't read your post well enough. I had no idea that he remained under Sanctuary after Maiden. They did a pretty crappy job if that's true.
Stallion Duck said:I too don't get why releasing an album at the same time affected Blaze. If you like Blaze you could easily buy both albums.I don't think the album would've done good if it was released on any other day.
Perun said:Yes, but in the case of Brave New World, it wasn't just "an" album. It was something very special to all Maiden fans, and I would wager that even those people who liked the Blaze albums would have preferred getting the Maiden album over the Blaze one. I mean, we all know how fanatical Maiden fans can be. Just look at The Final Frontier: In my case, for the first three weeks, there was nothing on rotation but that album, even though I had the latest Rock Hard issues and knew there was other stuff out... I just didn't care. Why should it have been any different back in 2000, especially when the band's 'classic' singer had just returned? We need to be realistic here.
