Discussion in 'Iron Maiden' started by possessed, Jul 4, 2003.
He should have never been allowed to sing Twilight Zone.
Yeah, I don't know if I would've hired him on the 'strength' of those audition tracks! I guess they'd seen him enough times with Samson that they knew what he was capable of, though.
I have a tape of it around here somewhere. I thought it was all right. I like the crazy drunkass stuff at the end more than the other stuff. The earlier concerts with him still doin a lot of Dianno stuff sounds better than the audition cuz they actually rehearsed as a unit.
And yep, his Samson stuff is quite awesome I'm glad they picked him, if they hadn't metal would be quite a different musical style now perhaps. EEK!
If they didn't pick him I would never have become a Maiden fan which pretty much means I wouldn't be listening to any bands that I like nowadays.
I've heard them. I can't say I care for them too much as a whole but they are neat.
I look at em more as a goof off than anything else honestly. They probably just recorded them for posterity because listening to the Samson stuff compared to Dianno with Maiden, you know Bruce gives him an ass whooping. That's really all that matters. hehe.
*pictures Bruce with his beard and unbuttoned shirt-samson era look beating paul dianno with a belt while singing "take it like maaaaaaAAAnnn ooohhh whoaaaooo ooooh OOOH oooh ooh ooh!" while paul is whincing in his leather jacket bent over*
Off-putting to say the least.
Yep, Beast Over Hammersmith is one of the best live albums ever!
Almost 20 years of listening to Maiden and I haven't even heard any Samson yet.
Only heard killers, i think he was tryin too hard to impress i think the guys knew that n still hired him
PS i agree with bronco
I don't agree at all that those tracks are bad. I have some of those songs on mp3 (Twilight Zone, Charlotte the Harlot, Killers) and I think they're just fine. Not necessarily better than Paul's versions, but still allright.
Anyway, who am I to judge. I'm such a Bruce-fangirl, he he he...
