BOOK REVIEW: KILLERS, THE ORIGINS OF IRON MAIDEN: 1975-1983 BY NEIL DANIELS

(SOUNDCHECK BOOKS)

Neil Daniels traces Iron Maiden, one of the most popular heavy metal bands on earth, from their humble roots of East London, 1975 right through to the release of Piece of Mind when they were cemented as world-renowned rock stars. Despite this being one of many Iron Maiden books, Killers stands out as the first to explore the crucial early years in depth. Vital to the bands development, 1975 – 1983 held numerous changes and false starts before founder and bassist Steve Harris found his ideal line up.

Daniels, also of Author of Iron Maiden: The Ultimate Unauthorised History Of The Beast, has packed Killers with painstaking research and interviews with the band and those surrounding them at the time. The book also includes a foreword from Guns N’ Roses guitarist Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal and an afterword from ex-Judas Priest frontman Tim “Ripper” Owens.
