HOW IRON MAIDEN SLOWED IT DOWN

8/7/2012

While on tour in the U.S. with Iron Maiden, drummer Nicko McBrain has been chatting about all things Maiden.

According to Classic Rock, the band are especially enjoying performing material from over two decades ago.

McBrain told AZ Central: “I’d listen and go, ‘Gosh, I can’t believe we played that song that fast.’ We still have a lot of energy, but as a player I’ve realized we couldn’t play at that speed today and make it work.

“We were younger and it was a lot more crazy. We’re a bit more refined with where we go with tempos now. There are still nights when I go a bit quick and the rest of the band moan.”
