Iron Maiden not too long ago performed “Alexander the Nice (356-323 BC)” for the primary time ever, which begs the query – what else ought to they lastly escape reside? Iron Maiden bassist Steve Harris tells Metal Hammer he’d adore it if the band would play their 1988 music “Solely The Good Die Younger” from Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son extra.
“There’s a number of tracks that might be good to dig out now and again, I suppose. I feel ‘Solely The Good Die Younger’ is a very nice music that might be good to play.”
“We did play it a few instances. It could be good to play that, perhaps. It’s kind of extra, a kind of obscure songs. But it surely’s simply… what do you drop out?! That is the issue. So many songs, so many albums.”
Harris later admits in the identical interview that Iron Maiden actually solely picks their setlists to please themselves, and does not pay an excessive amount of consideration to what’s truly common. Which is honest – dudes have been doing it for rattling close to 50 years. Gotta maintain yourselves entertained at a sure level, proper?
“This may be blunt and brutal, however we do not do it for the viewers. We do it for our personal factor first. We have gotta really feel snug with what we’re taking part in and luxuriate in it, after which hopefully they’re going to prefer it. That is all the time been our stance all through. We do not do a census of, ‘Oh does everybody like this or like that?’, or no matter. We do not do this.”
