Ok said I was going to do this…mainly so I dont clutter others threads for my love and adoration of my bass idol, and the main reason I play bass today.
Steve Harris hooked me into Metal back in 1982 with Phantom of the Opera. Been a number 1 Iron Maiden fan ever since. His percussive way of playing, speed, and precision has always left me in awe.
Just saw British Lion last night. I was right up front and MAN!!! Steve is just an awesome guy. To just finish a full world tour with Maiden, then get with these guys and tour the US with them. To be not only willing to play small venues (there were maybe 150 people at this place last night) and to be just as energetic and really show the love of his art no matter where he plays is a testament to a true artist.
One of the best pictures I took last night!
Give British Lion a listen…these guys are great. And after seeing them live…the band can carry its own even if Steve left tomorrow. Im shocked they arent playing arenas yet.
By the way Steve’s shirt say “Whale Oil Beef Hooked”. If you say it quickly it sounds like an Irishman saying “Well I’ll be fooked”… LOL…
And British Lion has released their newest album in its entirety on YouTube here:
And of course…My favorite Iron Maiden song… FEAR OF THE DARK… the chords Steve plays throughout the song just sets the tone of apprehension this song is trying to convey to the listener.
So what is your favorite picture, video, song of Steve’s??? Feel free to post!
