Paul, Paul, Paul... I'll just watch the Early Days and see what you had to Say there... Which is now (circa 2009) Ass-Backwards am I correct?

I love seeing how some of the comments bash on Bruce for his "gay voice" and "running around in spandex", and that spending $80 to see them is a total rip. I would rather Spend $80 and see a band full of life with a front man Working the Crowd and connecting everyone to the same train of thought, then $20 for a singer who stands there, sweats, and "sings".

Unjust bashing by Paul and by The Blabbermouths.

Plus when you're this big, making money happens... Atleast they don't whore themselves out like Metallica or KISS, who both you can argue, have earned their money. Sure Iron Maiden has their Cups, Clocks, Watches, Bags, Hats, etc. But I can only find the CD's, DVD's, Shoes, and Shirts in actual Retial Shops.

I would say they concentrate on making making money from the fans, and to me that's fine. Fan's buy things, it's in our defintion. But when Maiden start the slayer route (Instore Hot Topic Shows and Signings) then I'll call foul.

The difference between Maiden and any other band in the top tier of rock/metal popularity is this:

Maiden are about the only band to make it into that popularity bracket by totally doing their own thing, even when they were passed on and overlooked by mainstream radio and media for years. Maiden right now is the most popular they have ever been, and if anything, they're still actually getting more popular. Their success has nothing to do with trends or commercial appeal. That's one of the reasons Maiden will always be my favorite band. Because they are THE picture perfect proof that you CAN become "rich and famous" by being exactly what you want and never compromising your ideals.

Paul Dianno is an asshole and the article proves it even further. Dickinson is much better than him anyways so he is clearly jealous of the Maiden fame. What a douchebag.

Well put, and even Rod had said they had offers to do commericals and stuff but never took them because it wasn't what that band was about. They've been Maiden since their formation, and I'm so proud of them.

Did Rod have his day off when they decided to do those awful Crash Test Dummies "LOL wear your seatbelts kiddies" commercials?

This made me lose tremendous respect for Paul Di'Anno.

Just think, if Maiden had gotten in a bus crash in like 1982 and Paul died the world would have been spared his utter lameness for the past 25+ years and he would be forever immortalized in the pantheon of metal history, his legacy never to be tarnished. Shame He was such a badass back in the day too, and I've yet to hear anyone successfully imitate his vocal style on those early Maiden albums.

Yea but then you'd have a bunch of fucktards treating Paul as if he was some kind of Bon Scott infallible Messiah and thus, allowing them to think they have clout for saying pedophiliac retarded shit like LOL MAIDEN SHOULD HAVE BROKEN UP AFTER HE DYED or BRUCE IS GAY or 7TH SON IS SO SPINAL TAP or JANICK GERS GAVE ME AIDS.
