    The last one was posted somewhere on this forum. With Aces High. The most irritating person in the crowd/angry Bruce vid ever.

    Edit: ah I just saw you posted Aces High as well. Don't know Wrathchild from this gig yet.

    Let's tag that these are vids from Madrid 1999 couple of posts above, because I searched 'Madrid' over this thread and didn't see it. Should avoid (triple)posting

    Bruce and Dave interview, Fear of the Dark era. Includes explanation for silly b-sides and covers:

    Interview with Clive Burr and Adrian Smith! Interview at Victoria Hall, Hanley (Staffordshire, England) 28 November 1980

    @Ariana and everyone else: this is the first interview with Adrian! He was one and a half month in the band at the time, just having played his 8th concert with Maiden (excluding the TV performance in München)! Clive is doing most of the talking. Very special interview if you ask me. From 1980! Nice.

    "We all incredible Maiden fans, obviously, and I don't think Metallica would be where Metallica is today if it wasn't for Iron Maiden, not only paving the way but also for just inspiring me in 1981 to form a band. We were sitting there recording the Garage thing in LA and it was a pretty loosey-goosey set of sessions and one day we started going into Run To The Hills which is one of those things that anybody could attempt at any time.

    Sometimes those harmonies could be a bit tricky for a few of the guitar guys and I think a few of them were slightly off-whack. There may have been a couple of people who thought that we were taking the piss but obviously it was meant as a tribute in our own perverse Metallica way having been around basically nothing but English people for the better part of the previous five years. I'm sure no ill will was taken. About a year later, I think it was right when we finished the Justice album, I had been in New York mastering the album and Maiden were playing at the Meadowlands in New Jersey, it was probably July of '88. I went out and went to the gig. Obviously at that time, whenever you went anywhere you were pretty lubed up and continued to be as lubed up as possible. I was standing behind Nicko, they were doing the Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son tour, and I was watching him, hanging out. I think Run To The Hills was the first encore and he handed me the sticks and pointed. I was like, 'huh?' I crawled up the stairs and I remember hearing Bruce introduce me, then I started playing Run To The Hills in front of 20,000 people. I may have gotten just about as far as I did on the Metallica version that came out. The whole thing was a complete clusterf*** and I don't even think we got through the first verse. Note to self, don't play drums in public when drinking! We gave it our best shot but I don't think we even made it to the first chorus."

    I think this is the closest we will ever get to a multi cam Somewhere on Tour 86 - 87 full show.

    The audio is Paris 86, with painstakingly put together footage from several other sources as well as the Paris show.

    Not perfect (if you play an instrument you will sometimes spot out of sync sections), but it is a blast to watch ;)

    Here's the info that I have on the subject:

    "Rob Angelo, once penned a song called 'Sanctuary' which would no doubt have been a Mantis mayhem hit had Iron Maiden's manager, Rod Smallwood, not purchased it fore miserly sum and used it to further his boys' careers. However, the band accepted the blow with a philosophical smile just as they have accepted other failures." (Sounds Magazine– Robbi Millar - March 14, 1981)

    Bob Sawyer claims that he originally wrote the song around 1974 and that Maiden management payed him 3,000£ for the song's rights. I believe this is a claim that appeared on the Metal For Muthas CD liner notes.

    "I think it was a punk song, which we had a long time before. I had this song even before we joined Iron Maiden. We just creamed out for a little bit more and got that one together." (Paul Di'Anno for Wikimetal – September 26, 2002)

    The best bit is how they almost seem to recover from the mess but then nope, back to being messed up. And then they just stop abruptly and have this awkward little pause until they do the last outro bit.

    Hahaha indeed. This is like that person who played these classics the wrong way on purpose and put them on YT. Hilarious chaos.

    It was not only the song character who was killed during this performance, it was the whole song, while people screamed of terror. :D

    I think Steve got on with it too soon at 5:30, then they all almost caught up, but Bruce should have started singing ("yeaeaeah") at 6:03 and he didn't :D
    Great stuff :cheers:
