Welcome and Thank You for visiting
my "Iron Maiden MIDI Homepage". My love for heavy metal started in my college days at
Scranton in the mid-80s. Since the University of Scranton was a Jesuit school, there
were many preppies and Catholic school graduates who attended the university. I graduated
in 1983 from Harry S Truman (baddest public school in Bucks County), I was not used
to the music they liked; pop, dance,ect. I always listened to Led Zep, Pink Floyd, Yes,
Van Halen and the other Rock 'N Roll music. Then bands like Black Sabbath, Judas Priest
and AC/DC hit the music world and Heavy Metal was born. I started to really enjoy this
type of Rock since preppies didn't like it. I was always kind of different and this was
my way to go against the norm at college. I bought my first Iron Maiden record,
"The Number Of The Beast" and I was hooked. I compare them to Yes in the way the songs
are written. Though Iron Maiden talks more about destruction and death whereas Yes
is about futuristic nature, I felt a bond to really like the music. Iron Maiden is
not like any other Heavy Metal bands since their music talks about death, witches
and Satan. But that is where it ends. They are only stories handed down over the many
centuries or stories from the Holy Bible. Most songs from Iron Maiden are also over 4
minutes in length and some are even as long as 15 minutes. Most of the songs are also
longer than the usual pop heavy metal sounds of Motley Crew, Ratt, Quiet Riot,
