Iron Maiden Don’t Like MP3s

July 12th, 2010

Bruce Dickinson took some time at a recent Maiden show to blast MP3s:

At their Final Frontier gig in Concord, California, Dickinson told fans that their latest track, El Dorado, which the band allowed fans to download free as an MP3 from their website, is only worth listening to live or on CD.

And Dickinson blamed the situation on Apple guru Steve Jobs and internet giant Google.

He told fans: “The problem is that when you listen to it on tiny little headphones, propelled by a battery, on a device made by Steve Jobs and Google, it sounds like shit

“But the song itself doesn’t sound like shit when you listen to it in the studio or when you buy the CD – it sounds f’cking awesome.
