The New Wave of British Heavy Metal... oh hell yeah!!
Number of the Beast, Piece of Mind, Powerslave, Somewhere in Time, Seventh Son of a Seventh Son... and that's just the albums from the early years... nevermind that these guys have toured for decades now (forming in 1975), playing over 2000 live shows across the world... that's just amazing!!
Even as young teenager, the names Bruce Dickinson, Dave Murray, Adrian Smith and Steve Harris were permanently stamped onto my brain... and I wasn't exactly a musician at the time, so names shouldn't have mattered as much... but they did, these guys were something else!
Not to mention their mascot EDDIE THE HEAD... I always use to wonder if Eddie Van Halen had something to do with it, since both bands came up around the same time... but hey, I was a kid, what did I know... except that Eddie was the most badass zombie skull mofo, to ever grace the cover of a rock album!
And that's why we've got this unusual Iron Maiden "Eddie t-shirt" here... because it's a classic obscurity... to honor a classic british rock band in a way that hasn't been done before... and a way that's firmly tounge-in-cheek, while keeping the idea intact... you won't find this shirt anywhere else!!
Rock on Maiden...
