This fall, British metal legends Iron Maiden will reissue the first eight albums of their career on limited edition vinyl, the band announced on its website. As befits a band known for their visual element, the records will released as picture discs.
He hasn't drummed for Iron Maiden since the early '80s, but Clive Burr is still in his former bandmates' thoughts. In fact, as bassist Steve Harris revealed during a recent interview, Burr has been the focus of some of Maiden's main fundraising efforts.
Heavy metal-loving sports fans in Nashville, Tenn. will be able to spot a fellow headbanger on the ice pretty easily during the NHL's next season. That's because Chris Mason, who played with the city's Predators franchise throughout much of the '00s, is returning to the team... and bringing along Iron Maiden's beloved mascot Eddie.
Iron Maiden drummer Nicko McBrain admits that the band's current live runs through some of the songs from their famous catalog can't be done at the same tempos anymore, simply because they've gotten older.
Bruce Dickinson just can't sit still. As if fronting Iron Maiden and performing in concert all around the world weren't enough adventure for one person, the legendary metal singer is also an accomplished pilot who once flew Iron Maiden around the globe on a major tour, as documented in the film 'Flight 666.' He's also flown for Astraeus Airlines, hosted a five-part miniseries about aviation history, and recently launched his own aircraft maintenance company in Wales.
Typically, it's Iron Maiden's lovable (and seemingly unkillable) mascot Eddie who gets to dress up in all the cool costumes at the band's concerts. But it looks like singer Bruce Dickinson has been raiding his closet, borrowing the solider outfit popularized on the cover of the 1983 single 'The Trooper.'
Metallica, Chickenfoot, and Iron Maiden are among the stars joining forces for an upcoming Deep Purple tribute album, 'Re-Machined: A Tribute to 'Machine Head.'' As you can guess from the title, every song from the band's landmark 1972 album is covered at least once on this record.
