It's become obvious recently that this board desperately needs a thread where people can rant about stuff.
What's the 100K thread for then?
I want more intense ranting here.
Not sure if this post's rant intensity justifies it to be here, rantometer 3.5 /10 at Cinqus scale, yet better here than in Now Playing one.
Those were the days. Improvisations, guitar solos, drum solos, long speeches. Frankly now it's kind of boring to know exactly the songs order being the same for 100 dates with no surprises and little speech fills if at all in the middle. Or worse, lame rants about flares and marijuana.
We could easily get much more of what we actually have, Bruce reading poetry between the songs with some basic keys and guitar in the background, some Harris solos some Nicko solos. You know, content. No need to be too deep. Just give us some differentiation from a show to another if you don't want to change the setlist or the order.
It's not too difficult to produce, but recipe requires ingredients long gone: Zest, enthusiasm, energy. If you don't have 'em, imitate 'em!
Bruce is doing alright for himself in this compartment, Steve still has the energy to do clubs with British Lion, Adrian still got the fire big time. Why the fuck they don't join forces and insist keeping Maiden so boring, really?
Blame Steve -Rod unholy aliance.
