RETRO REVIEWS

I was first exposed to Iron Maiden in Mr Miller’s middle school art class where he let students paint 7' x 7' album covers on the wall. If they were great, they would remain. Eddie was painted in his padded cell for 1983’s Piece of Mind for all three years I was there. In my head he still remains. I graduated high school in May of 1992. Iron Maiden had already released 8 albums, and established Bruce Dickinson as their lead singer for 10 years by the time Fear of the Dark was released that same month.

SOUNDTRACK: 41

For my 41st year, I (Brian), will be posting weekly playlists of anything that catches my ear. 

Sometimes I’ll just put my music library on shuffle for hours, but sometimes the first song will send me down a genre or artist rabbit hole. Other days, I’ll hear something that will remind me to listen to something I’ve forgotten about. I also have a habit of listening to bands a bit before I photograph them or dig into a festival lineup in the weeks leading up to it.

Follow along for some new discoveries, forgotten classics, and maybe even a few that would surprise you.
