The Maiden United UK Tour 2016 

Maiden United may play songs from another “Mega Famous” band, but they have lovingly stripped down each song, and rebuilt them as their own, acoustically and the outcome is simply fantastic. The line-up includes Ruud Jolie (Within Temptation) and Damian Wilson (Threshold/Headspace).

Dennis Stratton (ex-Iron Maiden) will be joining the band for the London Gig.

“For an hour and 40 minutes we were treated to a magical journey of stripped back songs that we all know and love, played lovingly by fans of the band who happen to all be wonderful musicians”.

“These aren’t just acoustic versions of Maiden songs, performed as the originals, only substituting electric guitars for acoustic ones, it’s clear that a lot of thought and work has gone into the arrangements, in an effort to create something very different”.   Midlands Rocks.

John Otway misses the top 100 – boo!

Boo! Well John Otway didn’t get his Christmas hit. It may have been the day delay getting onto iTunes/Amazon and although he has a very loyal fanbase, not sure he had any airplay or much exposure until quite late in the day. Still he recorded a couple of good songs and maybe in true Otway form he could release it again in the summer (like TV repeats of Christmas specials) and have a hit 🙂

X Factor was number 1 and the Iron Maiden single to try and stop the X Factor only made no 44. Wealdstone Raider did well making no 5 with his ‘Got No Fans’ – dedicated to P*** V*** 😉
