Nothing at all to do with tax or accounts

Iron Maiden

Didn't find your answer?

Delivery arrived a day last, but got the new album blasting out right now. I'm sure my neighbours are very grateful·

Never listened to them. If you could recommend just one of their tunes to me, what would it be?

Pfft! Where to start? Every track's a masterpiece.

Probably Run to the Hills.

Or 2 Minutes to Midnight. Or The Number of the Beast. Or Fear of the Dark. Or a hundred others.

I always thought it'd be nice to get on a plane and find that Bruce Dickinson was your driver.

The new album is good but the last album, Book of Souls, is probably the best they have done since Bruce Dickinson rejoined. The earlier albums before he left were better. I still have their Phantom of the Opera as my ringtone!

Paul Di'Anno was the singer on Phantom on the original album, but Bruce sang a belter version on Live after Death though :)

Still got my original gatefold vinyl of Live after Death!

I only put that stuff on when I want to annoy the neighbours. Whilst I wear my Bose headphones which are plugged in to something a little easier on the ears.

I thought you had a flesh and blood maiden now. What does she make of it?

(That said, I do like their cover of Coleridge's classic Rime of the Ancient Mariner. And actually agree more with Lion than I care to admit.)

Not unusual. I generally say what everybody else is thinking but dare not say.

I don't think of myself as "everybody else".

And I'm pretty sure that everybody else would agree.

Isn't that a trait common to everyone from God's County?

People are friendlier here. They don't take frankness as a personal insult.

Afraid I never took that final step, my heaviness line got drawn at the Uriah Heep, Purple and Led Zep level, though I do somewhere have a single by Holocaust as I knew Gary Lettice( their lead singer), he worked in my Spar.

Biggest mistake of my life was one holiday saying that each of the kids could have their CD played on the car stereo whilst we drove across Europe, daughter's was fine, something like Take Thats' "Circus", son's choice was Metallica!!!!!!

His musical tastes have not lightened with age (luckily he these days usually (but not always) practices his guitar via an amp and headphones) and I believe his wife likes similar music ; am I grateful he is moving to the USA.

Don't all kids have at least one song that's kept in reserve for annoying parents?
I was so upset that my mother professed to liking Jimi Hendrix that I sought out the angriest local band ... who were never going to have a hit with this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZqJuqVWsjsE&list=OLAK5uy_l5bEbnKiOIsNNG1...

Musically pretty much everything I listened to annoyed my parents.

I think the most current music my father listened to was Gilbert & Sullivan /Elgar/Dvorak though my mum , whilst also mainly listening/playing classical music, did at least have some Rodgers & Hammerstein albums, two Beatles EPs and a record titled "Blues with Bechet".

Apparently my early musical tastes were formed by my playing Oklahoma over and over again, I still have the album inherited from my father but it is very scratched, four year old children are as careful with vinyl as inebriated eighteen year olds. (Some of my 70s albums are not in great condition)

Edit- did in later life manage to get my father to listen to Andrew Lloyd Webber "Variations" and Camel "The Snow Goose" but that is pretty much the extent more modern music impacted his life. If you want music torture it goes in the opposite direction, I listened unwillingly to an awful lot of opera, whilst one might think Genesis/Yes went on for a bit too long, operas never end.

I was about to correct your reference to Andrew Lloyd Webber "Variations" (by pointing out it's by his younger brother Julian) ... when I realised this is because I file my album alphabetically by Artist (not Composer). So smug expression edited!

Your parents had impeccable taste (especially your Mum) ... based on those all being on & off my turntable in the '60s, albeit interspersed with soul, R&B and psych etc.

This is much more enjoyable than discussing (and getting very angry about) MTD for ITSA.

Please can we have a music-related thread every week? (No doubt I will be told, quite correctly, that this is not the purpose of AWeb.)

Maybe this merits a new thread, there is a new Stranglers album out on the 10th, "Dark Matters"

The big one is of course the new ABBA album.
