  2. The good old early days before Nicko. Not that I mind Nicko you understand. His "listen with Nicko" tracks on the singles were excellent.

  3. As I'm not yet old enough to have received my telegram from the Queen, I had to Google this 'Iron Maiden'.

    My research has led to the conclusion that they're some sort of early version of One Direction.

    Popular with women at the time, but now supported entirely by insecure men with flabby arms and leather jackets who see this symbol as an expression of rebellion, rather than the cringe-worthy display of sheep-like obedience it actually represents.

  4. Unlike one direction, iron maiden can write their own material, play instruments, and attract 250, 000 audiences.

    Rip Clive, sadly missed. Up the Irons!

    It was touch and go for a while mate. Lucky the guys with the wonky pillowcases on their heads didn't get me.
