I honestly don't see the point of interviewing a musician if they're determined to talk about anything except music.
I think the problem might just be that - Bruce doesn't see himself as a musician, not primarily anyway. It's just what he does for a day job, once in a while, when there's a tour on in the summer.I honestly don't see the point of interviewing a musician if they're determined to talk about anything except music.
You could be right. Although ''exciting things'' can only be a new Maiden studio album...If it wasn't for Adrian's interview I would have said a new Maiden studio album.
Something curious: Nick Bowcott (from Grim Reaper) applied for guitarist slot in Maiden back in 1979:
- btw, he is left-handed.
In a new interview with "Waste Some Time With Jason Green", former GRIM REAPER guitarist Nick Bowcott recalled how he nearly tried out for a fellow New Wave Of British Heavy Metal band more than four decades ago. "I actually applied for the IRON MAIDEN [guitarist slot]," he said (as transcribed...www.blabbermouth.net
I actually applied for the Maiden guitarist slot," he said. I went to see Maiden when they were still unsigned. And when they advertised for a guitar player in 1979, I sent — I think I sent Grim Reaper's demo tape, which is gonna be released by a label very shortly, 'cause we found some okay versions of the cassette and we remastered it. And I've still got the letter from Maiden which was handwritten with a rubber stamp, saying, 'Hey, thanks for the application. The position is already filled.' And it went to Dennis Stratton. And I kept that letter."
He continued: "It's funny, all those years later, I'm friends with Nicko McBrain, and I haven't shown him that letter yet, but I found it recently, and so I posted it on Facebook, just 'cause I thought it was funny."
Well, considering that he says that he sent a tape and that the only ad that Maiden put on paper that requested to send a tape was the one published in December 1979, it does makes sense that indeed the job did went to Stratton, but the uploader of the images clearly has no idea..."to Dennis Stratton" - well eventually it did but in August 1979 it went to Paul Todd. Ok it also depends when he sent them the tape indeed.
