An astronaut/taikonaut/cosmonaut/angkasawan holding the new Final Frontier cd unaware Eddie is behind him with the xmas message - Be careful what you wish for.
(Side track - When I was a kid, I got nervous reading this short play called The Monkey's Paw. Be careful what you wish for indeed.)
The Inside - messages from all six members.
Moving on to the magazine itself.. and ooo how I love these revamped fanclub magazines, A4 sized over 40+ pages of full color high quality paper with no advertisements whatsoever. 100% Maiden content.
The cover is the Eddie used to decorate the new world tour announcements, and he's still holding the globe which shows South East Asia.
On the above photo is also the poster for this issue. A very nice Steve Bomber Harris in action photo. The flip side of the poster is Dave and Jan.
Here are some of the contents for this issue
Adrian Smith went fishing and snagging some big ones with a fanclub member.
Ironic is it? Hooks In You. Its the last H contribution before he first left Maiden in 1990. The start of a testing period if there ever was one for Steve Harris and Maiden and their loyal fans.
Now.. all is well, the colors of the rainbow shining bright for the fans and Maiden is at the peak of their popularity worldwide.
We got a Nicko interview about when he's not being with Maiden..
The Superfan section has some nice bedroom photos hehe
And of course some nice band photos..
this is the centerspread
Pada aku Steve Harris ni Maintain siak. Segak giler.
I like this Steve Harris photo. Very handsome.
And for his sake, WEST HAM PLEASE DONT KENA RELEGATED and I hope they enter Carling Cup Final where the scoreline will be : [t Ham 3...Arsenal 7...West Ham 3...Arsenal 7...Wes] HAHAHA. Sorry stupid joke. But I cant wait for a revenge for their previous Wembley encounter.
I'm typing this blog with PANIC starts creeping on me, Arsenal Ipswich still zero-zero. knn betul!!
Hurray!! just score!! What A Relief!! This BBC.com Sports internet reports is so detailed and funny. They know how to describe the situation. For people that cannot afford cable tv Astro and SCV and Mio, this is the next best thing haha.
I am giggling away as I read the scrolls of the live text commentaries.
Soccernet live Gamecast internet reports is very serious and less descriptive. No Fun at all.
I always love looking at snapshots of Nicko from behind the drum kit.
Ah yes on the interview in this magazine he did mentioned about searching for bonus footages for the DVD of Rhythm Of The Beast, but sadly as I checked and reviewed the dvd sometime back, there's nothing.
The guest band and musicians interviewed with regards to Maiden in this issue is Marillion. Lots of good info especially the late 80s early 90s period.
An article written by Dave's guitar tech about the storm during Finland's Sonisphere with Maiden's crew plane toppling over, and all the equipment damaged and collapsing and sadly a fan's death. Its nice Bruce went on stage and announce Alice Cooper and Maiden will play irregardless of the weather disaster and damges. The use of 30 hairdryers to dry the equipments and all the things that the crew members did to ensure Maiden can play for the fans waiting in the heavy storm.
Thats about it... I am so freaking HAPPINESS!
nananana..nananana...hey hey hey Goodbye!!
Arsenal have at last reach a cup final after the last few years. League Cup/Milk Cup/Littlewoods Cup/Coca Cola Cup/Carling Cup. I know la , this one is least prestige,
Mickey Mouse Cup or whatever, but I hope they win.. just like in school long ago, play sport, no medal to show, not nice feeling.
miss out on back page photo, I will post this blog later.
Sorry for lateness, this is the back covers of both the card and mag. Featuring the crossed keys Eddie and H.
