The Trooper

Today I’m thankful for Iron Maiden.

I appreciate bands that have fun, not taking themselves too seriously and making music for the joy of it.  It’s a bonus if they also happen to be good.  There are three specific things I most like about Iron Maiden:

Chances are if I’m in a Maiden mood I prefer the music to be aggressive.  Their guitar/drum combo never stops moving forward.

Bruce is an old school shouter.  I’d rank him with any of the original generation wailers.

Eddie is the perfect mix of macabre and humor.  He’s instantly recognisable, endlessly modifiable and bloody good fun.

Neither the song nor the video are mine.
