Let's not forget he also thinks that about The Raven Age and Lauren Harris.
I agree with Steve about 'The X-Factor', but not 'Virtual XI'.
Imagine that, Steve Harris not moderating his opinion about his own music. He probably thinks those albums are brilliantly produced, too...
His old blue bass from the 80s is actually the white West Ham one now, with a paint job. The blue bass that looks like the 80s one is actually the fender Signature version that came out a few years back (I have it also)Steve with his blue ''spider'' bass... I like it very much. He still uses it, now and then (I think). His old blue bass from the 80's is also cool, but this one is just wow.
For me Steve Harris was extremely disappointing live in terms of stage presence when I saw them, including the rest of the band bar Bruce
