The MJ Show #66(6) (Iron Maiden - The Golden Years - 1980 - 1989)

I have had the pleasure of hanging out with this incredible band. Twice!
Here...have a look :)

This was when they played in Bangalore and Mumbai. It was brilliant. The gigs were incredible and so was the time spent with them.
I will also admit this. I'm not the BIGGEST Iron Maiden fan in the world...though I do LOVE their music and their energy.

I thought that if I'm going to do a Maiden special, I've got to do it to help me out with that, I got a guy who is possibly the biggest Iron Maiden least in India.
Enter Mikhail Madnani (@mikhail666). I've known him for a few years and I can safely say that I don't know anyone else who has more Maiden stuff or knows their music more than this guy.
So, in the pursuit to give you the best, I turned to the best. :) And here is Mikhail's choice of songs from the golden years of Iron Maiden. I hope you agree with him :) (If you don't...I've just given you his twitter id. Bash him all  you want :) But I think he's got this one spot on!)
Loved the songs here...and I hope you do too!

(Incidentally the naming of this show as episode #66(6) was kinda something I came up with when Mikhail suggested that the 666th show should have been an Iron Maiden special...and since I've got a long way to go before we read Ep #666...I thought I'd sneak in a 6 just to make this one special) :)
