Well... Don't wanna touch any electric nerves here, but Bruce has always bashed Samson and his time in the band. I think HEAD ON and SHOCK TACTICS are supreme masterpieces, he should be proud of his vocal work on those two classic metal/hard rock records. Lately, he kinda softened his opinion on Samson, especially in 2000ies interviews. Maybe because Paul Samson died (RIP). Anyway, Bruce always forgets to mention he has earned many additional money since he and Sanctuary Management purchased the rights to the first 3 Samson albums + 1 live album (reissued in 1999 - horrid releases - and then in 2001 again - great releases) in 1985 or so. As confirmed by Thunderstick, nobody in the band has seen a penny from those albums anymore: http://www.bookofhours.net/samson/barry.htm (beware, Thunderstick loves Bruce and admires him... he's just stating the truth). Please don't get me wrong. I love Bruce, he is one of the top singers of all time. I love Iron Maiden. I'm a Samson/Thunderstick fan. I started this thread to get some positive feedback about this. Thank you!
