Iron Maiden - The Number of the Beast. I bought that album back in 82 or 83 when I was in the Air Force and living in the barracks, brought it back to my room and put it on the turntable then kicked back in a chair with a magazine. I didn't realize how loud I had my amp cranked and when that song started I nearly jumped out of my skin.

I saw them play later that year in Memphis with Saxon and Fastway, but was pretty drunk by the time Maiden came on and had dozed off for a bit, and remember waking to be staring at at a huge blowup doll perching behind them on stage.

Good times!

Wow! that was back Nigel the first took over the guitar for Saxon; who in one of the universe's little ironies, was then replaced (for a short time) by another guy named Nigel! Probably Saxon's best era, in my humble opinion. I know what I'm going to listen to tonight!

I am sure that you know that Dallas 1PM was about Kennedy's assignation, but did you know that Denim and Leather was a tribute to the 1979 Who concert in Cincinnati where 11 people were trampled to death?

I remember that event quite vividly, and also how it was addressed on the TV show WKRP. While i'm very aware of the song, I must confess that I never made the connection between "set the spirit free" and what it was alluding to. Color me dense!

Where were you in 79 when the damn began to burst?

Were you wearing denim, wearing leather, did you run down to the front?

Did you kill for your ticket, through the ice and snow?

Don't feel bad though, I didn't make the connection either, until I saw it in an interview with Biff Byford

Yep. If one knows the context of lyrics it becomes glaringly obvious; if not then it can be taken as just about anything. Of course, Tipper Gore would come along a few years later and tell us all rock songs like that are about the devil, violence, and sex...except for Kenny G. His stuff was all about SAX and violence.
