Does Steve like Iron Maiden?

#1 Post by Andrei Sora » Wed Feb 13, 2008 7:47 am

Does Steve like Iron Maiden? Just curious...

Do any of you guys like Maiden? Cos' from what I've read on the Maiden boards, not many people listen to Vai, so I assume that almost the same thing is happening here, meaning that not many people listen to Maiden.

Not so much anymore but maiden was once ALL I listened to, they were pretty much my first metal experience on guitar and started me off on so many different skills that helped me to where I am now. They still kick ass.

I wouldn't be surprised if steve liked them too :wink:

Back in the days when I was young and in highschool I was a big big Maiden fan. Just love The Trooper! Haven't heard a Maiden song in awhile now. They are going to do a show here in August so I hope to see them finally.

Can I Play With Madness is a great tune.

I remember growing up with Kerrang and they were always in it, but then they sort of became a joke figure when Kerrang tried to become cool and trendy in the mid-1990s. Instead of Maiden they were all over STP, Pearl Jam and even The Prodigy.

Now, seeing as all those 'cool' bands have since becomer defunct or shit, Maiden are now cool again.

The rock press....what a bunch of fannies.
