I'm big on 22 Acacia Avenue too. That one gets a bunch more praise from what I've seen, but still an overlooked gem. Love the chorus in it!I am not alone on this island
At first i did not like the albums because of the voice. I was really anti the first 2 albums and i reffused to listen to them.The thing about it is, I like the songs, I like the music, I just don't like Dianno. He just doesn't fit Maiden to me and if my understanding of the bands history is correct, Steve thought he didn't fit either. Of course, I may very well be wrong.
Once again, thank you! Very cool stuffCheck this out:
Bruce started to play live with Maiden on 26-10-1981. Some songs from The Number of the Beast were already played in 1981, before the band went into the studio! Here is an extensive list of songs played (and not played) live: click
