I saw Iron Maiden last night in Chicago. They are still pretty awesome. Bruce, Steve and even Dave Murray’s energy is still the same after all these years. Actually, their stage show is better than ever (thanks to an over enthusiastic Jannik Gers) and their stage set with the ever changing Eddie back drops was pretty cool too. Derek Riggs is out doing himself.
My brother and I went and we were transported back to 1987 all over again. I spent a few days in northern Illinois enjoying the cornfield, windmill, soy bean scenery. It is really beautiful up there. Today’s song takes me back to long forgotten summers and doesn’t have anything to do with Iron Maiden unfortunately.
