Priest's farewell show in 2011 was awesome and actually sounded good compared to Maiden's muddy as fuck mix last year. The only thing I give Bruce over Rob is amount of energy & presence. Listen to "The Mower" from Rob's last solo album. He was 59 when he recorded that. Bruce is 54 right now. Age catches up with everyone. If Maiden wants to squeeze out another 5 solid years, they should start tuning down half a step so Bruce won't have to continuously strain himself.
