Iron Maiden Moves

An excellent interview with the greatest living Geordie has shown up on, of all places, the Vice website.

“When I tell him that watching him play live guitar instrumentals often makes me think of the power of heavy metal – even though the show is just one person and an acoustic guitar – he calls heavy metal “honourable” and reveals that one of his great musical epiphanies was when his sister played him Iron Maiden’s debut album for the first time: “It was the start of everything.” He adds: “Sometimes I catch myself doing a ridiculous Iron Maiden move with my guitar, but then I remember: there are no ridiculous Iron Maiden moves.”
