I used to have a friend that could draw

Eddie on fucking point. That was in the

eight grade. He used to bring ALL of his

Maiden tapes to school, because his mom

threaten to throw them away. She used to

say it was the devils music..hahaha

 

my favorite covers...

I got it all on tape but I just had my boy burn them onto CD. I hear they're still rocking hard so I'm pissed I missed them this time. Saw them a long time back with Anthrax though. WAY too many good songs to pick a favorite. Scream for me Long Beach!!!

No, no..I didnt meet derek riggs.

That would be cool though!

Naw, I met some guy in the 8th

grade. He was in my math and home ec

classes. He drew Eddie on point.

Muscles and all...real good detail

for an eight grader. I wonder what

he up to now. He could draw all kinds

of shit, but his favorite was Eddie.

They just did a show in my neck of

the woods a few days ago. They were

here with DIO, and Motorhead.

Its pretty cool that all the old bands

are still playing, and doing shows.

I went to a private catholic school 1st - 8th grade. uniforms and nuns .. the whole bit. i had free dress one day ... i wanted to wear my iron maiden shirt and my mom wouldnt let me wear it. we were fighting over it all morning ... it was the first time i ever said "FUCK YOU" straight to my moms face. she didnt bend ... so i stuck it in my backpack and put it on right after she dropped me off actully she was just driving away. stupid kid shit ... but great times.
