    Iron Maiden - They are on of the 3 bands I idolize... (others being KISS and Death)
    The reason??? Sublime and supreme music quality... totally ingenious...

    Apart from Virtual XI (which I've not heard), and some songs from The X Factor, I like each and every Maiden track... right from Iron Maiden to Dance of Death...

    Nicko's drum-work is good, and Adrian, Janick and Dave are too good... (esp. Dave)
    Bruce "Air-Raid Siren"... who can go higher??? (For each and every song?)
    Steve Harris = Bass demon...

    Iron Maiden = One of the best ever performers and musicians to ever hit the stage...

    here this will help:

    apart from that
    there are currently three guitarists (all are lead guitarists - so they share their parts in leads n rhythms) in Iron Maiden (was founded by the bassist Steve Harris)
    • Adrian Smith - was an original member (but he came in a little later than others), usually his playing style is a little different from normal minor scale and pentatonic runs - and his solos are more vivid than fast, he left the band but then returned
    • Dave Murray - was THE original member, usually his solos are more of licks based on minor scale and pentatonic scale runs, personally i have found his solos are slightly faster than Adrian's but not as much vivid - in the sense the notes n pitch doesnot change very much
    • Janick Gers - came in as a replacement for Adrian Smith, i have not explored his style too much, but i feel his is more like Dave Murray
    anyway in the Albums: Dance of Death and Brave New World all the 3 guitarists play together ...

    it is JUST awesome seeing their live performace ...

    death_metal_fan oh goody, it's a woody!

    Surprising thing that even many Maiden fans don't know is that today's Iron Maiden line-up contains none of the original members except for Steve Harris.

    @Alfons: Dave Murray is not an original member (close but not quite). Steve Harris founded the band and its original line-up consisted of the following:

    Paul Day - Vocals
    Terry Rance - Guitar
    Paul Sullivan - Guitar
    Steve Harris - Bass
    Ron Rebel - Drums

    Granted that this line-up only played for a few months before Dave Murray was recruited instead of the guitarists alongwith one Bob D'Angelo, but still this was the very first Iron Maiden line-up having played songs such as 'Innocent Exile' which featured on the debut album.

    @rocking_devil: Bruce Dickinson is not a founding member. He never sang on the first 2 records where vocals were done by one Paul Di'Anno. Janick Gers joined the band in 1990 replacing Adrian Smith who went off to do some solo work.

    Fear of THe Dark in 1991.. methinks...
    Nice album overall... I liked the other stuff they did on it, like Wasting Love and Weekend Warrior... something not all that Maidenish...
