September 6, 2010, 10 years ago
IRON MAIDEN have issued the following update:"Adrian Smith has recently been in collaboration with old friend Dave 'Bucket' Colwell, a musician who's versatile career has led him from his early days alongside Iron Maiden's Adrian Smith in the A.S.A.P project of the late 1980s via a 14 year tenure with BAD COMPANY, to his current undertaking: the album Guitars, Beers & Tears.
Adrian is featured on the songs 'Reach Out' and 'Make Up Your Mind', on the album which was released on August 17th, 2010 on the AAO Music / Reality label in the US and Canada, and due for release in the UK on Jerkin Crocus Records on the November 1st,2010. Alongside Adrian, Bucket also enlisted the help of a number of other notable musicians for this project including members of the NEW YORK DOLLS, Bad Company, THUNDER and The QUIREBOYS.
As previously reported, according to Billboard.com, IRON MAIDEN's The Final Frontier (EMI) starts a second week atop Billboard's European Albums chart. The Maiden album thus outdoes its studio predecessor "A Matter of Life and Death," which had one week at the pan-European summit in 2006. Frontier now debuts at No. 1 in Italy and retains its crown in France, Spain, Sweden, Norway and the Czech Republic, but drops from the top spot in the United Kingdom, Denmark, Switzerland, Austria, Portugal and Germany.
The Artisan News Service spoke with Iron Maiden bassist Steve Harris and singer Bruce Dickinson about the success of the band's latest album, The Final Frontier and will it be the last?"I think not,' says Harris. "I think everyone knew when we put this album out people were going to be wondering about the title, if it was the beginning of the end or the end itself. Hopefully not. I would definitely like to make another album."
