More Maiden...


I think this has been done before but it was quite a while ago. The very simple question here is whick one of the guitarists that have recorded with Maiden do you prefer??

Personally I go for Dave Murray. He's got the best technical ability aswell as the best feel.

Adrian Smith by far. Very melodic, and can throw in old blues licks (with taste!) in the middle of a heavy guitar solo.

Dave Murray's best solo is in the slow part of Powerslave. Sublime.

Re: More Maiden...


Adrian is the best guitarist of the band by far. I feel that either he is a big contribution to the band's success, or it is a combination of him and Bruce. Also, his solo on Maiden's Stranger In a Strange Land is one of the top guitar solos in rock and roll.

I have wondered what Deep Purple would have sounded like if they asked him to join the band instead of Satch or Steve.

I agree with you on the SIASL solo.

And that IS an interesting question!

Dave Murray, followed very closely by Adrian Smith.

Where was the choice of 'anyone but Gers'??

I think he would have been a better choice than Steve, actually. But even if they had got him to join he would have left pretty soon any way when Bruce returned to Maiden.

Smith. He's got a great Michael Schenker type-of thing going on at times, bluesy yet very melodic.
