Description by

Formed in East London by bassist Steve Harris in 1975, Iron Maiden are one of the most popular heavy metal bands ever. It didn't start that way though. Killers -The Origins of Iron Maiden traces their humble roots and the personnel changes that plagued them as the band strived to find the winning formula.

Covered here are the legendary Soundhouse Tapes, the two acclaimed Paul Di'Anno fronted albums - the self-titled 1980 debut and 1981's Killers - and the commercial breakthrough with 1982's The Number Of The Beast, which marked Bruce Dickinson's debut, and its highly acclaimed follow up Piece Of Mind, which cemented Iron Maiden's status as the world's biggest heavy metal band. This unique book is the first to focus on Iron Maiden's important formative years. It includes a foreword by Guns N' Roses guitarist Ron 'Bumblefoot' Thal and an afterword from ex-Judas Priest frontman Tim 'Ripper' Owens. The publisher and author have also received extensive help in tracking down every concert played during the period covered (no easy feat), plus rare memorabilia. Influential fan Ryan LaMar, who runs a website on the band, has been amazingly helpful.
