What is wrong with this Iron Maiden bar stool seat spinner?
1. Go back to the store an see if it is broken- You could call first and ask.
2. Go to a hardware store and see if they have anything in hardware to fix it.
2. Google the stool and get a description of it.
There's been a rather large revival of oldschool metal in general lately, as evidenced by all these new thrash and glam metal bands popping up who sound almost exactly like the '80s bands. While they aren't entering the mainstream like they did in the '80s, a lot of other metal is, especially metalcore and deathcore, which gets kids into metal more and encourages many of them to listen to the classic stuff too. So, I would say there are definitely a lot more people listening to Iron Maiden now than several years ago. The fact that they, along with all the other old bands, are all starting to release really good, oldschool-style material again now probably really helps get more young people into them who never would have bothered listening to their older stuff.
Which Iron Maiden albums should I get, and which of their songs are the best?
The best introduction to classic Iron Maiden is the album Somewhere Back In Time, which is a compilation of most of the best songs of their heyday in the 80s. It includes most of the stuff from their 3 best known albums: the Number of the Beast, Piece of Mind, and Powerslave.
However, Maiden has come up with a very new sound since reuniting with longtime vocalist Bruce Dickinson in 1999, so you ought to try Dance of Death, which is the best of these newer albums.
If you can't for whatever reason get those albums, try listening to any of these singles:
Run to the Hills (widely considered their signature song)
The Number of the Beast
Children of the Damned
Rime of the Ancient Mariner (their longest song)
Phantom of the Opera (one of my personal favourites)
2 Minutes to Midnight
Fear of the Dark
The Iron Maiden (their closing number)
Journeyman (a wonderful acoustic epic)
The Reincarnation of Benjamin Breeg
These Colours Don't Run
El Dorado (from the new album)
Isle of Avalon (also from the new album)
And BTW, do NOT check out anything from The X Factor or Virtual XI. These were their two worst albums, made with an uncharismatic vocalist and best forgotten.
Its Into The Black Hole-AYREON
[Bruce Dickinson, Lana Lane]
[A. THE EYE OF THE UNIVERSE]
A dark sphere surrounds us
In the centre of the galaxy
A hidden force has found us
At the boundary of eternity
Nothing escapes, not even light
Beyond the mystical horizon
We surrender to its might
Gazing into the eye of the universe
A deep roar is sounding
As if the universe were crying
My heart is pounding
My every nerve is dying
[B. HALO OF DARKNESS]
I hear screams of fallen souls, sad cries of agony
Within the void of this evil hole, deep inside the black
Could it be my imagination, the mirror of my fantasy?
A fear-induced hallucination
Or is there no way back from the halo of darkness?
Spirits - apparitions - misery - suffering
Horrid dreams and dire visions rising up from the black
Look away in disbelief, this cannot be happening
The end has come, I bow in grief
There is no way back from the halo of darkness
[C. THE FINAL DOOR]
Now silence devours us
The calm before the storm
Gravity overpowers us
And leads us through the final door
Feed me light, I'm the halo of darkness
Feel my might, I'm the eye of the universe

Seriously, not to sound cliche, but "The Number of The Beast" rips it up. It seems to be the one Maiden record that everyone knows because it's so iconic, but it shreds. one word: Invaders!
"Somewhere In Time" is pretty righteous too.
I saw them live in the summer of 2010 and they were excellent! They sounded great and put on an awesome show, I was quite impressed that they put on the performance they did even in their old ages. You should definitely go see them in concert. Even if you end up not liking their performance, you should still go just so you'll be able to say you saw Iron Maiden live.
Some of my favorite older songs are:
- Aces High
- Alexander the Great
- Fear of the Dark
- Flight of Icarus
- Mother Russia
- Phantom of the Opera
Some of my favorite newer songs are:
- Dance of Death
- For the Greater Good of God
- Out of the Silent Planet
- Sign of the Cross (Live)
- The Reincarnation of Benjamin Breeg
These r my favs:
Fear of the Dark
Run To The Hills
666 The Number Of The Beast
Can I Play With Madness
The Reincarnation of B. Breeg
Hallowed Be Thy Name
Flight of Icarus
2 Minutes to Midnight
Children of the Damned
Phantom of the Opera
How do I sing like Bruce Dickinson of Iron Maiden?
If you want to sing like Bruce, then you'll (probably) need to extend your existing vocal range. The best way to do that is to just practice singing higher than what you already sing; above your comfort zone. If your voice cracks and breaks and you sound ridiculous, then you're doing it right (but if it hurts then stop and take a breather or go down to a lower pitch).
No matter what anybody tells you, if your voice starts to hurt then you should stop. I've been involved with bands that use growl vocals and screams for years, and if I can do those without my voice hurting, then I'm sure that Bruce can execute his style similarly.
One last piece of advice. Deep breathing - very deep breathing - will make any kind of singing (though especially high singing) alot easier. If you look at any videos of Bruce Dickinson performing live he always has his chest thrust out in front of him; that's because it's full of air.
Don't get frustrated if you can't raise your vocal range in a few weeks. It takes months and even years for some people to push their notes higher. Just try and have fun with it and sing along to some good music. I'd recommend Nevermore as a good starting place for a baritone (as their singer is also a baritone, and just happens to sing quite high in this particular band) and possibly Coheed & Cambria when you can put up with vocals a little higher than that.
How much is an Iron Maiden "Killers" vinyl worth with a misprint?
Just because it has a misprint, doesn't mean that it's worth any more than market value, my guess is that when they printed the labels, they printed thousands of them with the double side 2 thing, so, i would guess it's worth about fifteen dollars
How do I convince my parents to take me to the Iron Maiden Concert?
Well, probably nothing will sway a parent's opinion if they just make blind statements like that. Some info that might help though- Nicko (the drummer) is a born-again Christian, so it's pretty unlikely that he would play in an "evil" band. Also, I just saw them this past summer and probably a quarter to a third of the audience was comprised of families with children of all ages.
If you don't have it, I would recommend getting the "Iron Maiden: The Early Days" DVD and have them watch the documentary with you. That will demonstrate 2 things; the importance to you for them to understand something your interested in, and it will also humanize the band for them. If they do this, there is no way they will think they are evil. If they do, and still say no ask them for specific reasons and hopefully you can talk them out.
If they aren't willing to do this one simple thing, then as much as I am against going against a parents wishes- I say just go. Kids are meant to disregard their parents (to an extent) and in this case there is no harm.
How much is an Iron Maiden Number of the Beast picture vinyl worth?
It all depends who you take it to. It can range from $400-$1200. But I would recommend you wait until one of the members pass away, hopefully not for a while. But if you wait till after then man will you make bank.
Iron Maiden is the only band I know of that has three guitarists, but are there any others?
Nearly every southern rock band had three guitarists (e.g., Lynyrd Skynyrd, Molly Hatchet http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OgNAfSENE68 ). The Eagles had three guitarists as well http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ygI3BZxdCY.
Hell yeah, I'm a Maiden fan. I had planned on going to Europe this summer for some heavy metal festivals, more specifically to see Maiden again, but, unfortunately, I'm not going to be able to pull it off.
my favorites are:
2 minutes to midnight
the wicker man
brighter than a thousand suns
the evil that men do
run for the hills
where eagles dare
to tame a land
be quick or be dead
phantom of the opera
hallowed be thy name
flight of the icarus
caught somewhere in time
heaven can wait
I saw them a long time ago in a Hot Topic store.
But check em out over the internet and they even have a Eddie megastore so you can buy them from Maiden's official website.
Btw, thats a real cool gift for a boyfriend.
Up The Irons, indeed!!
I can tell you they were the first band I ever saw in concert! Their Powerslave tour, and they were incredible. Saw them again a few years ago at Ozzfest.
Flight Of Icarus
2 Minutes To Midnight
Number of The Beast
Run To The Hills
The Number Of The Beast, Powerslave, and Piece of Mind are my favorite albums.
