    Well he obviously wasn't very impressed by it!

    If you check out some of the videos from the Powerslave record you will see him playing another kind of bass too. Looks like an Ibanez to me.

    Ibanez it was, and Lado once in a while during the Somewhere in time tour.

    No, the picture is from summer 1977. The Iron Maiden line-up at the time (outdoor gig at a festival) was Steve Harris (obviously), Dave Murray (you can see a bit of his arm in the picture), Ron Matthews on drums, Den Wilcock vocals and Bob Sawyer (guitar).

    He played this sunburst jazzbass a little while in the very early days. Also played p bass.


     
  7. Yep, a passive Roadster. I used to have one just like it, pretty much a 24-fret P bass (with an optional J pickup of course).

    Haha awesome!

    I'm will see him play his P-bass tomorrow. I won a contest to go into the venue 15 min early, so I will be right up against the barrier!!

    It was amazing. He pointed his bass at me and did that thing he's always been known for!:hyper:
