And i finally got to see IronMaiden in March 2007, in Dubai when they headlined Desert Rock Festival. Personally, the show was no great deal - ya- the guys played well and i saw bruce dickinson with his leg on the feedback speaker!! But then i dint get half the kicks that i got when i had watched David Pascal, Timothy and Gang ( a bunch of ex college kids , mostly from MCC who had a band called Moksha) back in Chennai do a cover of the Trooper way back in 1995 at IIT OAT!!
But then there was this strange good feeling that i had at the end of the show. A sense of "been there, done that" a kinda feeling a happily dying man who had seen it all might have!!
Here's are some pics from the show of the band at Dubai Rock Festival - borrowed it off the net.
