Paul Di'Anno & Dennis Stratton - The Original Iron Men

Recommended Posts

The two ex-Iron Maiden members Paul Di'Anno and Dennis Stratton made two albums back in the 90's together I've never heard of. Wonder anyone knows them here. The music is a mix of melodic metal/hard rock/AOR and I found it quite good.

I remember seeing (and laughing at) that terrible album cover when I saw it in a store, but never heard 'em before.

lol 

Iron Men = Ned Kelly?

Dennis Stratton means nothing to me, and probably to 99% of people who are Maiden fans.
DiAnno was great, his S/T band was great
Battlezone was average.

This Iron Men thing smacks of a gimmick to cash in to me.

In briefly checking out these songs/videos it seems odd that they are all Fastway songs (Lea Hart era).  I recall hearing about them collaborating on an album and I've seen that cover before, but have never heard anything from it until just now.

You are joking right?

Any true Maiden fan knows their history, including Stratton and Burr.

Seriously tell me how many times you went and saw Stratton play with Maiden.
or Heard Maiden albums with him singing?

I know the history, I am aware of him. But it means nothing.

Tell me, would you be interested in hearing a Michael O'Neill/Fran Karuba album?

These are FASTWAY songs, when Lea Hart was the singer.

You know Stratton was not a singer in Maiden?

What does it matter how many times I saw him? You said he means nothing to 99% of Maiden fans, and I said you are wrong.

Burr, Stratton, Dianno are as important to the Maiden legacy as Harris and Murray, and to say any of them means nothing to 99% fans is ridiculous, just because you dont care. Come to their home land and you will find your opinion is pretty much worthless.

Are they as big as Dickinson & Harris? Of course not, but nobody but nobody would disregard the guys who played on the early albums and EPs etc.

Yeah, sorry for a second I got confused with the original vocalist who wasn't on any album.
Stratton played On the first one?

Burr  has some importance to me, obviously Dianno, but most of the rest were just guys filling spots while the band established itself.

Same with Bayley. He's really not that important to Iron Maiden history to me.

Look at Dianno now. He's just a dude who sung on a couple of good albums>
I liked his ST album, and I really liked Gogmagog (all 3 songs) but aside from that Battlezone was pretty average and he's making a living doing whatever he does.
I doubt I'd bother going to see him sing.

    • Bonfire had dropped off my radar the past decade (someone mentioned an album a year!!!).   This samples I've heard on the forth coming album have drawn my attention once again and hopefully, this is a refreshing new face for the band's music.    Definitely going to grab a copy of the new one  
    • For sure Tim was one of the best and most gentle soul I ever encountered while collecting music.  Loved all the interactions we had over the years, and yes, he certainly was knowledgable as T-Bone pointed out.   Did a number of trades with Tim and of course, when I was active selling on E Bay, he bought CDs from me and discussed many of the titles I was selling.  Just another good person that I enjoyed.
    • these guys show that you can still make an enjoyable song with generic, borderline cheesy lyrics if the other elements are there
    • Wow....thanks for sharing Tony.   Tim was definitely one of the great guys....I can remember when I was active selling on E Bay, Tim would always be talking to me about different titles and, of course, we traded many times as well    I always had Tim pictured as a very gentle soul.....So sorry to hear of his passing from this awful virus in the world....
    • I am one of those who prefer their style on Knock You Down and Sultans over the direction they've gone in with the last few albums.  I thought the initial promo tracks for this one sounded solid so I gave the album a spin.  Not bad, but at the end of the day none of the tracks really grabbed me like those earlier releases.   
    • I liked the first two promo tracks for the new album, but this one not so much.  And as Geoff mentioned, the video clip itself is pretty bad
    • I don't have one favorite film but there are a few that I rewatch on a regular basis.... Die Hard (first 3 flicks) Pirates of the Caribbean (all of them) Home Alone (first 2) Predator Those are the ones that immediately come to mind but there are others....
    • Canada still hasn't hit the apex yet, although they are saying we should hit it over the next few weeks... I expect we will be staying at home for another 6 months at least...I think we will be dealing with this virus until there is a working Vaccine in place which will be until at least Spring 2021 maybe even Summer 2021...a lot of numbers are being thrown around where we could have as many as 25000 deaths before it is done.....we still aren't testing enough to get a real understanding of the spread.....the economy will truly be screwed for years to come...one good thing to come out of this is that Canada will not have to depend on other countries for health care equipment after this virus as we will make sure that we make our own equipment instead of outsourcing it... latest numbers.... Total: 12,954 (18 presumptive, 12,936 confirmed including 214 deaths, 2,502 resolved)
    • I hope you and your wife are doing well.  Those are difficult enough jobs, but I can only imagine what you both are going through during a time like this.   I anticipate this will remain a major concern here in the U.S. at least through the summer.  In areas hardest hit it really overwhelms the hospitals.  The economy was overall in good shape, but we've already seen lots of furloughs and layoffs.  The federal government has unfortunately been playing catch up through most of this and has had to re-evaluate their assessments and action plans often.  Despite warnings for years from health officials, it seems like both the current and last Presidential administration failed to keep a proper inventory of the necessary ppe and emergency medical supplies. The state and local governments have had to manage much of this on their own initially, and all responded differently.  As such some areas of the country may be better off than others by June/July.  While other states will likely have ramifications for months beyond that.  It astonishes me to see people not taking the recommended precautions seriously while others hoarded essentials early on leading to panic buying and stores struggling to keep some items in stock.  I am grateful my family is well and I remain employed, working from home now.  I check in regularly with my parents, mother-in-law and a few, older neighbors. I try to remain calm so my family feels safe. But to add to my general concerns, I was diagnosed with neuroendocrine cancer last October.  It's a manageable disease with regular monitoring and treatment, but I am in the high risk category, so my stress level is at a maximum.
