Iron Maiden performs in Bangalore today (sigh, hardly anyone comes to Delhi), so I thought I’d give some Iron Maiden trivia to suit the mood. It’s one of my fave bands after all! And no Rach, Iron Maiden isn’t a really tough woman.
- ‘Iron maiden’ is the name of a medieval torture device. Yup, the one shown above – it’s got nails and the poor chap who needs to be killed is pushed inside, where he might die due to bleeding, or lack of oxygen. Rach may be interested in this now – Tim Burton apparently loves iron maidens; he’s shown those in a few films of his like Sleepy Hollow.
- The ghost-like figure featured on Iron Maiden albums is called Eddie. He even has an official video game Ed Hunter (it’s an FPS) with . Even this tour is a part of ‘Eddfest’.
- I was wondering how DNA Networks gets to organize all the major concerts. Seriously, they’ve pretty much bagged everyone that came to India.
