Me & Bruce D.

February 12th, 2007

Before we bid farewell to all things Iron Maiden, I want to include this last bit. Note the stylish late-80s hair.

This is your humble narrator circa fall of 1988 – about a year before he started listening to Maiden. Now here is Bruce Dickinson, lead singer of the band.

I suppose I was fated to be a Maiden fan, having the same haircut as their singer. Also note that really cool t-shirt I have on…

    I’ve signed us up for an access hour on WORT for a show I’d like to call ” Talkin’ Maiden”. We would take calls, play rarities like their cover of ” Cross Eyed Mary” (which isn’t as good as you’d think),and generally talk Maiden.

    Also Suicide Girls in Maiden Shirts, You got your chocolate in my peanut butter !

    Dude, I’m there! Can we do a duet of “Charlotte the Harlot”?

    Dude, I believe the term is “Dudet”.

    Start writing your setlist

    Herr Stanton – I’ll ponder the setlist tonight. Can we have a WWII fighter pilot fugue with “Aces High” and “Tailgunner”?

  7. Palmer says:

    The D can shut her piehole now. We’ll see how Valentine’s Day goes with comments like that.

  8. Palmer says:

    Call Me Ishmael – yes, that’s from the yearbook. My hair is much different now. Hopefully Sarah T.’s is as well. ;)

  9. Palmer says:

    Ok, dudet, if we’re gonna do rarities, then we’ve gotta play the best of their b-sides, “Sheriff of Huddersfield”. Classic. Also, we’ve got to play something by these ladies:

    Women in Uniform has to make the set list as I always find it hilarious that the same “serious’ artistes that turned Rime of the Ancient Mariner into a 16 minute opus could pen such thoughtful lyrics :Women in uniform, sometimes they look so cold
    Women in uniform, but, Oh! They feel so warm !
