Re: Iron Maiden
When I saw them live last summer, Janick really added a lot to their sound. They have so many multiple guitar parts layered in there that having a 3rd guitar when playing live made it that much better. Someone to hold down the rhythm during their trademark dual lead parts. I was surprised that Janick did quite a bit of lead guitar on their older stuff too. I remember him playing lead on "The Prisoner". He is also probably the most energetic one on stage... with Bruce a close second.
The other thing that surprised me was the demographics of the crowd... Everything from little kids to very old people. I fit right in as a 45 year old in a Rush shirt... lol. When I walked in to the place it was like "Ah, my people!"
Also... after that concert I got home and dug out my guitar that I hadn't played hardly at all in the last 15+ years. Now I've got a couple new guitars and have been playing every day for a few months. Love that Maiden!!!
