The Number of the Beast

Iron Maiden

Discovering Iron Maiden is covered in detail in The Story of Rock and Roll.  When I first heard them Paul Di’Anno was on vocals and, as you should know, it was only when Bruce Dickenson left Samson to join Maiden and they released The Number of the Beast in 1982 that things really took off for the band.  The Di’Anno years are very special to me as I love finding bands before they become famous. I think Killers was one of the best albums I ever heard but most people only really got into Maiden after Bruce joined.  In terms of video we’ll stick with Bruce for this round though.

Iron Maiden are one of the most successful Metal bands of all time.  They probably rank second only to Metallica in terms of commercial success.  This actually gives me faith in the world where for once hard work, grit, determination and talent win out From spear heading the New Wave of British Heavy Metal to now touring the world on their own 747 they are unique amongst metal bands.  I had the privilege of seeing them again in 2016 and they are quite simply the best live band going.
