McBrain Damage does a lot more than "a few Maiden covers in their set" - it's a Maiden tribute band, that occasionally plays other covers, haha. It's not like they have original music or anything. I have no idea who the hell is actually IN it at this point though, as I know for a fact 3/5 of the band that did the 2004 tour aren't even friends with Nicko anymore. In fact, one, Rick Baum, guitarist and co-founder of Rock N Roll Ribs - is suing Nicko.

Also, I strongly believe that the influence and power of Steve Harris is having an adverse effect on Maiden at this point - both in the songwriting and setlist departments.
