I'm completely stuck on this one.



How's that for a bass technique, by Steve Harris-- founder, primary sonqwriter, and only member of Iron Maiden to have been in every lineup since forming in 1975.

Influences

Quote:
Harris was influenced by the progressive rock bands of the 1970s, as well as early hard rock and heavy metal bands. His influences include Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Emerson, Lake & Palmer, Genesis, Jethro Tull, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Thin Lizzy, UFO, Uriah Heep, Wishbone Ash, and Yes. Speaking about the early Iron Maiden sound, Steve Harris described the band as using twin-guitar harmonies inspired by Wishbone Ash and Thin Lizzy, complex time and mood changes from Genesis and Jethro Tull, and the dark melodic elements of Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, and Led Zeppelin.

In about 2000, I auditioned for a three-piece band that had five songs written, which they sent to me in demo form, to learn.

They didn't like me because I didn't play with a pick. I didn't become their bass player.

One of the songs from their demo sometimes plays in my head. But here's the thing. The version in my head is not a demo. It's recorded and mixed properly. Over the years my memory has improved their shitty demo.

Those poor bastards could have been bigly.

That is a really cool thing the brain can do. A guy I went to school and extended family re-unioins with used to rebuild awkward conversations and then tell us how it went in his alternate reality. That was more conscious but it was a need to do not really a want to do. We like things nice and tidy with a bow and rarely get that.

You're right, life is a series of couldas, shouldas, and wouldas.

Something triggered the memory of an old song that I haven't heard since I was a kid. Only bits and pieces emerged; but, enough to make a genre association. I did a search with what I had to go on and, after one thing led to another, I pinned down the origin.

Then I searched for a video of it. I found only three of which two were what was to be expected. The third video was … unusual … but interesting. Now I have an earworm and an eyeworm!
