“As I got out the cab, I got a text message from Janick saying ‘Police have found a man’s body in the park. Beer belly, wrinkly arse, small c*&k and a face like a slapped arse. Text me back so I know your (sic) OK.’ All I could text back was ‘I am having a bet’ because I couldn’t read the letters on my phone with all that whisky in me, to which he replied ‘Thank God your safe, I was sure it was you!’”
So writes Kevin Shirley from his online diary as he records Iron Maiden’s new album. It’s good to see NWOBHM survive into the 21st century. Is there a new Saxon album due soon?
