Metal Friday Special Edition: Maiden Countdown, "Killers"

Imagine it's 1981 and you're a member of Iron Maiden. Your lead singer, Paul Di'Anno, has just left/been kicked out of the band, and although you've got two well-received albums under your belt, your future is very much in question. In comes a shortish dude with a mullet, Bruce Dickinson, front man for Sampson, to audition for the vacancy.

He launches into a Maiden hallmark, "Killers." The rest is history, as was Di'Anno.

I hope to post a review of tomorrow's show at some point this week. Until then, Up the Irons!

Four days after this went up and no ones commented on it yet? You kids better be at the concert or something.

The only thing I can say about the audition tape, is that it's like being there at the start of an avalanche--it's big, but it's gonna get bigger, and it's gonna get LOUDER.

(Paul who?)
