I'm not intimately familiar with their catalog, but yes, I do like them.

They've been showing a couple different live shows on TV recently, and next time they're in town, I'm definitely going to see them. Seems like a freaking awesome concert.

"Fear of the Dark" is a great freaking song.

I saw Iron Maiden in 1986 or 87 in Madison Square Garden. Some good memories. Surprised to hear they have anything new. My iPod has a bunch of their old stuff.

The title really got me wondering.... If it's just a title or a subtle hint that they will retire... Not that it would be a surprise when they do.

But, yes, I do like the band. And Bruce Dickinson is just such a talented human being, at basically everything he does. How can you not like someone who can be: a brilliant singer, a songwriter, TV show host, radio show host, film producer, professional fencer, pilot... Granted, not everything he touches is gold, but the band certainly is.

I can't say I've a favorite song... Hallowed be thy Name, Rhyme of the Ancient Mariner and Paschendale top the list, I'd say.
As far as albums... Seventh Son is certainly their most complete work.

They're OK I guess.  

My favorite album is Piece Of Mind.

Actually, Steve Harris writes the majority (if not all) the lyrics. Bruce just sings them as far as I'm aware.

Not that I'm complaining when he has such an awesome voice.

Well, he doesn't write most of the lyrics... But he writes some of them, which is enough to qualify.

If you can't get every album, then get The Best of the Beast. Make sure it's the two-disc version.

Love 'em, seen 'em many times. Favourite album is hard to pin down, but anything with Blaze Bayley certainly sucked. As for tunes, Prisoner, The Trooper, Where Eagles Dare, Run Silent, Run Deep, Holy Smoke, Alexander the Great & Transylvania are certainly on the list.

I would be going to see them this summer, having now just got a job after being unemployed for a few monthes, there isnt't enough money to go around.

They've been releasing albums pretty consistently since then.

While Harris is certainly the most prolific songwriter in - and leader of - Maiden, he by no means writes all the lyrics. Check out their discography:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iron_Maiden#Discography

If you click on the individual albums, Harris wrote the vast majority of songs on the first few. But by Piece of Mind, other band members were helping out and/or writing complete songs. I'd say Dickinson is 2nd in songwriting credits, followed by Smith, Gers, and Murray.

I've seen them live at Roskilde Festival twice, first in 2000 and then again in 2003.

The first one was legendary though, apparently the festival guide booklet (which has a description of all the bands that are playing) had offended the band, by suggesting that Iron Maiden 'might perform one or two songs of their (then) new album, Brave New World'. As a result, the band decided to play the entire album in one go 

Might as well throw in a self-plug, here's Brave New World from the 2000 concert: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ce1Qkpdk9F8

Nicko co-wrote a tune on Dances Of Death as well, after 20 years in the band. I believe Clive Burr wrote one o2r two on the first three as well...

I'm aware of that. Just didn't think there would be anything new after 20 or so years.

They're only my favourite band of all time. 

Seeing them on the Somewhere Back in Time tour was my first concert ever, and that got me hooked on concerts. I get to see Iron Maiden live twice this summer. In Toronto on July 3rd which I got floor tickets for, and then at Wacken in August. Oh this is going to be one hell of a summer for concerts.

Yep. But if a drummer wrote it, it can't be any good, right?  

What did the drummer say right before he was kicked out of the band?

"Hey guys, check out this song I wrote..."

Good ol' NWOBHM.

'Rhyme of The Ancient Mariner' and 'Powerslave' are pretty bad ass songs. '2am' and 'Man on the Edge' are 2 songs that also helped me out a few times when i was low.

I, as a drummer, both take offense, and sadly, can relate to that   

How can you tell the drum riser is level? The drummer's drool is even.

What do you call a drummer with no girlfriend? Homeless!

A boys says to his dad: "When I grow up, I wanna be a drummer." Dad says; "You can't do both."

What do you say to a drummer at your front door? How much for the pizza.

How do you get 2 drummers to play in time with each other? Shoot one of them.
