An Interview with Iron Maiden’s Dave Murray

Iron Maiden is my favorite band and has always been number one on my bucket list of bands to meet and photograph. As you can imagine, it was next to impossible to get face time with the group when you have a photocopies fanzine with little to no distribution or circulation. But that doesn’t mean I didn’t try. For years, I harassed the band’s publicist for a phone interview and a photo pass, but I was turned down over and over again. Then something horrible and wonderful happened. In the mid-’90s, Maiden lead singer Bruce Dickinson quit the band...

Bruce Dickinson “What Does This Button Do” autobiography review

Bruce Dickinson What Does This Button Do?: An Autobiography Dey Street Books I jumped on Amazon the moment I heard about the pending release of a true Bruce Dickinson autobiography and instantly preordered a copy of “What Does This Button Do?“.

RSD Black Friday 2016: 10 records worth picking up

I have to be honest, I’m one of those cranky pants vinyl geeks that bitch about how every day should be Record Store Day, and how RSD has sold out by placating to major labels and making it next to impossible for indie bands to get their records pressed. That said, I still believe in supporting my local record store, and if that means trudging out on a made up holiday to drop $100+ on overpriced, limited edition vinyl, so be it. The Black Friday edition of RSD is typically a much more low-key event than the April version. The...
