Hey everybody, how are you? I want to know your opinion on this matter. According to my research, Maiden recorded a version of The Ides Of March long before they recorded the Killers album. This seems to be confirmed in the bootleg recorded at The Ruskin Arms on on October 5, 1979. Now, I've asked Loopy about this and he said that they played the song live until they recorded the album version, however, on the before mentioned bootleg The Ides Of March seems to be recorded. What do you think? Is it played live or it is an early recording? Does anybody has any info on this matter?
