Well, let's see. I'd rather suck Zyklon-B through a straw than listen to a bunch of mangy dirt-heads scream at the top of their black tar, nicotein filled lungs. Run to the hills? Forget that. Run off a cliff. And The Trooper? More like the Super Trooper meow. Face it, these guys give Spinal Tap a good name. Not to put too fine point on it.
Yeah, they're just like Spinal Tap.
This is a band who has consistently put out gold and platinum albums with minimal airplay
who have a true global fanbase. How many popular bands take the time to go by themselves (as opposed to part of a larger music festival) to Israel? India? Dubai? Australia? The number is very few. Fewer still are the number of those bands that continue despite being practically shunned by the popular media.
BTW, singer Bruce Dickinson, who, I might add, is also an accomplished Olympic class fencer and licensed commercial airline pilot in addition to his singing duties for Maiden AND hosting a weekly BBC radio show, abhors smoking. Oh, and his hair is short nowadays
You don't have to like the music, but you also don't have to parade your ignorance around attacking individual members in letting us know your musical tastes.
