Finally, a glorious, illustrated celebration of one of the most successful rock bands of all time!
Formed in east London in 1975, Iron Maiden went on to become one of the most successful rock acts in history. With more than 85 million album sales to their credit, the legendary metal band remains hugely popular worldwide: Their 2010 album, The Final Frontier, debuted at #1 in 30 countries and received unanimous critical praise.
In this, the first complete illustrated treatment of Iron Maiden, a roster of respected heavy metal journalists including Ian Christe, Martin Popoff, Mick Wall, Daniel Bukszpan, and more relate the band’s history, analyse their recordings, and provide a complete discography.
The stories behind the band’s formation, recordings, and tours, are complemented with more than 400 images, including live performance and candid off-stage photographs, as well as memorabilia, gig posters, T-shirts, backstage passes, buttons, and tickets. And with Derek Riggs (the man behind Iron Maiden’s iconic mascot, Eddie) having created the book’s exclusive cover art, this really is a must for any serious Iron Maiden collector.
Few bands have as widespread global appeal as Iron Maiden. Here is the book that gives that history its just treatment.
Neil Daniels has written about classic rock and heavy metal for a wide range of magazines, fanzines, and websites. He had more than 10 books published between 2007 and 2011, including titles on Judas Priest, Robert Plant, Bon Jovi, and Journey. His reviews, articles, and interviews have appeared in The Guardian, Rock Sound, Record Collector and myriad other publications and websites.
