From what I've seen on youtube, he doesn't even bother singing anything remotely difficult in the Maiden songs, and he doesn't really sound like he did way back otherwise.
And the local Maiden cover band plays way better than his does.

He doesn't. It's more of a nostalgia kinda thing. Plus there's never anything wrong with old school Maiden songs.

This guy is a douche. He bashes Maiden at his shows, yet lives his life out of whatever he can get out of the songs that he didn't even write. Then call Harris out in interveiws. I'm glad i didn't go to his show here. I will refuse to support him.

He does this strange kind of growl these days because he can't sing anymore.

On the post-Maiden albums front, of actual new original material he's done two albums with Killers, three with Battlezone and two solo. That's it. Seven albums in 28 years, and some of those even contain Maiden re-recordings or live versions of Maiden songs as bonus tracks.

And he plays roughly three songs from any of them. Ever. When he toured 'The Living Dead', which was a re-release of 'Nomad' anyway, he didn't play any songs from it. The most irritating thing is, most of them are actually decent. The Killers and Battlezone albums are good albums.

The rest is re-releases, compilations, live albums and re-recordings. He spends his entire time cashing in on his time in Maiden. I find it unbelievable that he had to postpone his UK tour until 2011 because he's literally fully booked for 2010. Why are all these places still paying him to play?

This is actually kinda funny and I would kinda like to see that show myself.

About 8-9 years ago Paul DiÁnno played in my hometown for about 50-60 people. After just two songs he grabbed the mic and said for no reason whatsoever.

- Britney Spears is good for one thing. Sucking my cock.

Truly bizzare moment. But the most bizzare of all was that a friend got me to be part on an interview with Paul a few hours before the show. The guy was really clear stating that the guys in "Iron Maiden should be really grateful that he didn´t sue them" Because the songs on the first two albums were his songs and not theirs. But all in all he was a very nice guy, maybe just a tiny bit disillusioned.

What I don't understand is why anyone would have any interest in seeing this guy at all? His voice wasn't even that good when he was in Maiden. Also, someone needs to tell him that is was the band who played on the first two Maiden albums that made the songs good not his crappy vocals.

If anyone should be thinking about suing someone at all it sure as hell shouldn't be Di'anno against Maiden. Harris should sue his ass for playing all the songs he wrote. But Steve wouldn't get nothing out of it anyway so there's no point to it. I'm sure he gets a good laugh out of Di'anno's actions anyways.
