My Life. My Music. Your Voyeurism.

On this day in 1985…Scream for me, Long Beach!

LaDI remember going to the Music Man at Military Circle Mall in 1985 to buy this.  It was a rare trip in that I was out with both of my older brothers who were 21 and 23 (I was 15).  Neither of them were living at home at the time and I don’t even really remember why we all went out together, but glad we did.  The Music Man was a great locally owned shop in a mall in Norfolk, VA.  I bought lots of stuff there over the years and even worked there 1991-1992.  That was pretty special.  RIP.

When Powerslave came out, it quickly became and still remains my favorite album of all time.  Interviews from the tour kept saying that there would be a subsequent live album and that made me happy.  What a live album it was!

Aside from hearing many of my favorite Maiden tracks, the liner notes were jammed packed with tour stats…all of the dates, drumsticks used, guitar strings used, etc.

Tonight I’ll watch the DVD…again.  UP THE IRONS!
