Does anyone else think this is what Iron Maiden would have sounded like with Gillan on vocals? emoticon.

IMO Gillan just sounded as a real Heavy Metal singer at Born Again. He just blew away Dio, Halford, Dickinson and everyone else at Disturbing the Priest!

No, Maiden sounds different.
But there is one part of a song on Toolbox, which reminds me of Maiden, but at the moment I can't tell, which track it is.

It sounds more like Deep Purple if they had hired a hard rock guitarist when RB left. Just add Hammond and watch.

Re: Toolbox


This question is very easy:
"Pictures Of Hell" has a dead lifted
Iron Maiden riff.
Since it's the epic track on the album it's hard not to notice this.
A couple of other tracks have similarities to Maiden as well but vere from the full metal style.
If this album had a hammond organ it would have been better than anything Purple have done since THOBL.
(and maybe it still is)emoticon

I absolutely agree with you there. It sounded as if Gillan were auditioning for his old Purple job back and does a great job of it at that. I told you before if he had sung like that on HOBL or TBRO, there may not have been such discourse in the band.

I agree and would have to say that it certainly does sound like an autition and it worked,I just wish they didn't make him tone it back down to the tune of Gillan sings Rainbow again,but the material for TBRO had already been written and recorded so he didn't have a choice.

 They could have scrapped a lot of what they had or at least re-tooled it for Gillans return, but I guess since RB was coerced into letting him back due to record co. pressure for the 25th anniversary, he probably had a bug up his ass from the git-go and figured "let him sink or swim.

Ritchie is the one who wound up sinking. emoticon
I'm glad he bailed when I think about it,there was not much left to do as far as a unit goes.
Ritchie was in a different world and as ready as ever to break out of the R&R way of life,good thing he did because he sounds so much more at home these days,why force what's not in you anymore?,it doesn't have as good of results.
