    yeah it's sad..Adrian hardly writes anymore either..

    I feel the last Maiden album was one of there worst ever and if Adrian would have contributed more it could have been pretty good...

      I almost threw that album out my sunroof when I first heard it..

      I got it cause when I saw them last they played Wildest Dreams..and it sounded cool live..so I thought it was gonna be ok...I haven't bought a maiden album since no prayer for the dying...

      don't get me wrong, I love maiden, and other bands..but I'm not above saying one of my bands put out a **************** album..not what you'd call a blind fan

      some of my friends who like maiden say it was a 'good effort'..what the hell is a good effort!!! it amazes me....

      but, ranting aside..lol...yeah, the last album was a peice of human excrement...

        WHY

        OK, when Adrian was out of the band, it makes sense Janick would play his parts, but even when Adrian rejoins? I don't get it. Watching the live in Rio DVD pretty much shows why I will not see IM in concert until they dump Janick Gers.

        Totally agree that Adrian is a great player though!

          That's why I was Adrian in a tribute band!

          I (obviously love his stuff) Very influential to my style, I usually wouldn't have entertained a "Tribute" but I could not say no... I miss it!

                there's some cool tunes on them, but overall, I think they're tired albums...

                fear of the dark has a couple cool ones...chains of mysery is a GREAT song...murray wrote that...and so's be quick or be dead..the rest of it is simply 'meh'...

                I didn't care for brave new world..although I thought wickerman is another GREAT song...not sure if he wrote it or not..definetly sounds like his style..

                  they really don't need three guitars anyway..yeah, they can have someone playing rythm while they have the harmonies, but they used to do fine without that third axe in there

                      LOL!!!
                      One thing I liked about Ad Smith is that eh did change. Murray still looks the same, plays same guitars etc as when he first started maiden. At least Smith has had different images, guitars etc etc

                        indeed =) remember that old ibanez destroyer he used to play around 86? =)

                        kinda related...I got ASAP Silver and Gold from ebay awhile back....I had ordered it from a local music store back in like 90 and never got it...haha..

                        anyway, there's a few bright spots, but you could tell he was going in a less metal direction and I was a little let down..but the leads, as always are great and he's got a great singing voice

                          is that the album with "the lion" on??? I really dig that song.

                          As for guitars...I quite like Ads white Jackson (?) on the 7th tour

                            yep, the lion..blood on the water...

                            that's a very cool guitar...didn't he use that in the stranger in a strange land video as well? been awhile since I've seen it...

                            that concert video is great..too bad they shot it on video tape instead of film though like live after death

                              if you get the DVD "raising hell" you can see me in the mob of 200 fans who were invited to pinewood studios to film the show

                              however I must say that I missed AS when he wasn;t in the band. When he re-joined I made the trip to paris & rotterdam to see the first Euro shows with him back. Starting the shows with Aces High was something I didn;t think I'd see again - KICK ASS!

                                Yes...Janick does jump around like a homo. I must be the only guy who thinks that his style is actually kinda cool...like a really heavy and raw Blackmore thing. Of course, I would prefer that he not be in Maiden, but I still think that he rips. Flame away...I'm ready.
                                Just because it ends in "s", it doesn't mean that you have to use a ****************ing apostrophe.
