I made a pledge to myself to watch a lot of TV this week. So on Monday I tuned into VH1 for “Flight 666,” a documentary about Iron Maiden’s tour of Central and South America.
Guys, is it possible that in 20 years or so, we’ll all realize that Iron Maiden is the best rock band in the world? Because I’m pretty close to believing that. Because, umm, did you know that Bruce Dickinson, the singer of Iron Maiden, has a pilot’s license, and that when the band tours, he flies them around in, like, a 747 jet that has Iron Maiden painted on it and even has a picture of Eddie (Iron Maiden monster) painted on the tail? Did you know that?
And did you know that Iron Maiden is still rocking so hard? My friend went to OzzFest a couple years ago and said Iron Maiden blew every other band off the stage. Still holding it down.
Seriously, if I learn more than one Iron Maiden song, I might just become a super-fan.
The one thing that bothers me about Iron Maiden, though: Not enough nicknames for people in their liner notes. LOL, I think they should add some nicknames for their road crew.
Hmm … I feel like there might be lots to write about Iron Maiden. We might just have to explore the idea of an MNFTIU IRON MAIDEN WEEK.
(This is a video of Iron Maiden live in Rio … with one person singing along.)
