No, those are pretty much relegated to the classic albums. I can't recall offhand who they interviewed for the 21st century stuff, but I want to say Jericho, Tim Henderson and the dude from Trivium chimed in mostly.Interesting, are there opinions of these legends such as Portnoy or Friedman on newer, 21st century albums?

Van Der Graaf Generator
Oh yeah, I misunderstood you I just wanted to say that Maiden is not quite the same band without Bruce. He is very important to the band.You may have misunderstood me, I mean't that Di'Anno or Bayley aren't really into theatrics, and they were Maiden frontmen. Because only Dickinson is into theatrics, so when he isn't in the band there aren't any, stage and props aside.
Interesting one, thanks for sharing!Old interview with Bruce from 2010, during the promo for TFF. Apologies if this has been posted at some point.
