1990 radio interview with Steve, Nicko and Dave.
They first wanted to name the album Prayer For The Dying, but Eddie will not give anyone a prayer, so they ended up with NPFTD - I never knew that, cool.
I knew that but haven't heard it in ages...
Kalata, a tip, go to iron maiden commentary site and read all the interviews. Stuff like this is there for sure.
I'm sorry that I post this video here, but I don't know for which specific thread it belongs. A nice ''live battle'' of solos by Adrian and Janick (originally played by Adrian).
There’s only one possible response to this:
I can't remember if this was ever posted here. I searched and could not find it:
Channel 4 special 1999, with 'Arry, Bruce, Paul Di'Anno, Rod and Dave.
@matic22 Nicko tells his football injury here: click
I remember when that aired, I had the whole show on video and may have transferred it to dvd back in my bootleg trading days
Was this posted? I think it was can't find it.
TNOTB live 2005 (Early Days Tour) with women on stage.
They had a lot of.. shall we say interesting features in the first show in Prague that got ditched pretty much right after it. Those girls, Charlotte in the set, 1st album cover big Eddie...
I am so glad they dropped those cringeworthy and dodgy aspects of the show before the concert I went to...
The other countries did not have such a willing "entourage" so they had to drop it.
Oh I think Hungary would be the Mecca
I saw them in The Netherlands in 2005. I am pretty sure they would have been able to find willing participants for that dodgy stage show. Thankfully they dropped it before that show.
They also used random girls on parts of the Brave New World tour to be "burned" in a Wickerman during Iron Maiden but I think they dropped that also fairly quickly as the tour moved a long?
The burning girls were in the Rock in Rio DVD, which I think was the last show of the tour. Bruce, being the gentleman he is, burned with them.
Been a long time since I've seen Rock in Rio but you're right! So basically they used girls to be burned in the Wickerman for the entirety of the Brave New World tour?
Not as dodgy and cringeworthy as the Number of the Beast girls in 2005, but close
It's even funnier when you hear Bruce's comments about him thinking the BNW stage show was one of the better ones they've had. I mean, there's the cross on Sign of the Cross, a walk-on Eddie and some girls being burned. Kind of not seeing it, myself.
The light show was upgraded IIRC. Also his last couple of tours before that, from No Prayer on the Road to EHT, well he's kinda right. The band was in dumb-down state back then
