to the hills

Run to the Hills by Iron Maiden just popped up on my iPod – classic and classy stuff. It always reminds me of when I was in a band when I was 17 or so – our singer was able to do a pretty decent Bruce Dickinson impression, so we did a few Maiden covers. Our drummer and bassist particularly enjoyed the over-the-topness of it all, and I’m sure we sounded about as ridiculous as the real thing.

    I remember it well! And “Jumping Jack Flash” – great cowbell action.

    Hi Andrew,

    Takes for the email. Yes “Run to the Hills” came out over the PA system, before Megadeth took to the stage. Since the average age of the crowd was about 30-ish, there was a hearty redention!

    I remember visiting you guys up in Aberdeen, and doodling on the guitars and listening to Steve Vai – “The Audience is listening!”
