Iron Maiden History
Just in case we have anyone reading this that doesn’t know, Iron Maiden were formed by Steve Harris on Christmas day in 1975 and came from a small town called London. Harris got the idea for the band name from the novel The Man in the Iron Mask. For the most part they cut their teeth at the local pub, The Cart and Horses in Stratford. There have been many members of Iron Maiden but perhaps the most important has to be Eddie, a vital part of the bands artwork and very important element of the live shows. The first stage version was a papier-mâché head, this became know as the head or in London slag The Edd, thus Eddie was born.
In 1980 they released their self titled debut album that reached number 4 in the UK Charts. The track Iron Maiden was one of the first songs played on MTV back when it was a music station. The rest as they say is history.
