You mean this one (from the booklet) or this one? It seems to me that both pictures are older than 2008.TBOS had a picture of the band taken in 2008 I think
I really like the title of this interview - The Way Of The Samurai...Massive interview from Bruce on Kerrang:
Maybe this is the chorus of ''Stratego''?How do you read a madman's mind?
Teach me the art of war
For I shall bring more
Than you bargained for
Give me an ultimatum
That I could not dream of
Spills of a crying nation
Upon my soul
I can't say for sure, but I dunno if they'd have a sticker advertising the two singles off the album if one of them is not even out yet by the time the album releases. It's obviously not impossible, but I think the target market of people who hear the single post-launch and then are curious enough to look up the band and want to buy a physical CD is largely non-existent at this point. People hearing the two singles before the album's out and deciding to hop on the train, well, that seems more reasonable to me. It might be a slight sales boost for the band in that crucial first week.The chances are 50/50 imo - in August or in November (after the release of the album).
I used to tape the Listen with Nicko parts, and tried to mimick his accent..I am old enough to have done mix tapes (TDK90 cassettes). I made Maiden mix tapes too back in the early 90s. The days of pressing record and play button at the same time and the threat of erasing the master cassette tape by accident (if you got left or right side wrong on your player) was real
Not sure how many here can identify with this or listening to Maiden on a sony walkman?
