Iron Maiden’s Steve Harris
Interviewed By Gueniviere on July 22, 2000
Before I get to the meat of the most recent interview I did with Steve Harris (the first of several others was done back in early ’82), perhaps a little background is in order…
Classic Interview with IRON MAIDEN’s Steve Harris
July 1982, Alpine Valley Resort, Wisconsin
Interviewed by Gueniviere in 1982!
This article/interview, written when Iron Maiden were the support band on the Scorpions’ “Blackout” Tour, first appeared in the August/1982, edition of NIGHT ROCK NEWS, a now-defunct Chicago music paper.
The following is a transcription of the article I wrote from the first interview I did with Steve Harris back in July of ’82. It’s so funny to view some of the comments in hindsight! Remember, at the time, not all that much was known about Iron Maiden in the US yet, and there was no internet to access the info. You basically had to rely on anything else that was written that you could find, and at the time there wasn’t much around in the US. But then, it made me ask questions I might not have asked otherwise!

Blaze Bayley is probably best known for the wrong reasons because most people in the music world remember him only because of his brief period as the lead singer for Iron Maiden. However he has done a lot more during his long lasting career. Before Maiden he did several albums with Wolfsbane and after Iron Maiden he formed a new band called Blaze which last summer released their third studio album called "Blood and Belief". I was fortunate enough to meet Blaze before his performance at Wacken in 2004 and then we talked about Blaze, Wolfsbane and of course a little about Iron Maiden too? Here are the results of that nice conversation? enjoy!
