I Love Iron Maiden

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 326 People

    I'm an Iron Maiden purist.

    I think the greatest Maiden was the first 3 albums with Clive Burr on drums. Clive and Steve were just flawless together. I mean, musically they just lost the energy and tightness after Clive left. I stuck it out until Powerslave, and even forked over the cash for Somewhere in...

    British Lion

    I can't believe I'm reading this but Steve Harris is releasing a solo album! All I can say is I'm already dying to hear what it sounds like. http://www.ironmaiden.com/steve-harris-british-lion---brand-new-album-released-september-24.html

    When you drive 5 hours to see your favorite band in concert, ensure that whoever is responsible for navigating knows how to get there.  Make sure it isn't him going off of memory from when he lived nearby in 1990.  Using a GPS device can sometimes be ridiculous in that...

    Older And Wiser

    As a metal guitarist during the late 70's throughout the 80's, I never cared much for two-guitar bands. So I never really got into Maiden much during that period. Fast forward to 2006, I was watching Metal Mania one Saturday morning and was watching the Run To The Hills video...

    Simply The Best

    I am amazed about every aspect of this band. Their music, their concerts, the incredible lyrics that the put together and the composition of notes is just amazing. If you appreciate good music listen to Iron Maiden.

    They Grow On You

    When I was first introduced to metal I did not really like Iron Maiden. One of my buddies gave my a bunch of their songs and I just left them there. After a while I just started playing them. They grew on me and they are one of my favourite bands now. They are unlike any other...

    Clive Burr - Rest In Peace

    Clive Burr, who played drums on Iron Maiden, Killers, and Number of the Beast passed away peacefully in his sleep March 12th. It's a sad day for heavy metal but many of his songs are still performed by the band and many consider The Number of the Beast to be the band's best...

    Maiden England 2012

    I posted when this tour was announced and saw it a couple weeks ago. Maiden never disappoints! I won't spoil the setlist for anyone who doesn't want to know (it's easy enough to google) but suffice it to say it was great. Classics and a heavy dose of Seventh Son material, plus...

    Iron Maiden is by far my favorite British Metal

    band. And I love them from all ages. From Paul Di'Anno to present day. My favorite song was always 2 Minutes to Midnight. I even had an alarm set on my phone to play the chorus of that song at 11:58 every night. That's definitely a conversation starter at the bar. lol

    I have been a fan of Iron Maiden since the mid eighties.   Their music called my attention first because I did not understood their lyrics.  It was not until the early nineties when I finally understood and I was not disappointed. Now I am a 40-year-old man for...

    Best Band In The World

    I have seen them only four times but have been a fan since the beginning. My joint favourite albums have to be SSOASS, and AMOLAD. I recently saw them again in Dublin and had the best night of my life.

    Maiden Insanity!

    There is simply no other band in the history of rock quite like Iron Maiden; before they unleashed their legendary EP 'The Soundhouse Tapes' in 1979, I always felt that rock and roll was messy and non-artistic. No other band before or since has ever been as good as these iconic...

    Maiden England ...

    1982, to be specific! I was about 12 when I discovered the delights of Iron Maiden; a formative age for any boy really. Funny, that magazines like Kerrang! used to term Iron Maiden a kind of 'boys own' metal band, like the books of yore, detailing action and adventure.....it was...

    Who Is Eddie?

    When someone mentions Eddie from Iron Maiden, which do you think of? Who is the most iconic, definitive Eddie? I think it's probably Piece of Mind era; specifically from The Trooper, but cyborg Ed from Somewhere in Time is definitely a close second.
