IRON MAIDEN: Running Free - The Official Story of Iron Maiden

Port Chester, New York: Cherry Lane Books, 1984. First Edition. Trade paperback. The first book-length profile of the English heavy metal band, published shortly after the release of their Powerslave album. Pioneers of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal (NWOBHM), Iron Maiden were formed in 1975 by bassist Steve Harris, whose galloping riff style became the band's trademark. Iron Maiden rose to prominence with their self-titled debut album (1980) and unparalleled live performances, which feature their famous mascot Eddie. With the replacement of lead singer Paul Di'Anno with Bruce Dickinson and the release of their seminal album, The Number of the Beast (1983), Iron Maiden established themselves as one of the genre's most popular and influential acts. To date, the band has sold more than 80 million albums and performed nearly 2,000 concerts throughout the world - and yet, neither they nor Judas Priest are in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Tall octavo. Original pictorial paper wrappers. Some mild edgewear; else very good or better. Up the Irons! Very good. Item #69812
