|Burning Ambition - Das Iron Maiden Fanbuch||
|Already before the triumpahl comeback of Bruce Dickinson in 1999 IRON MAIDEN belonged to the most sucessfull heavy metal-bands in the history of this genre. Till inclusive »Virtuel XI« Steve Harris and his playfellows sold 45 million sound carriers and earned 150 gold- and platinumhonours! A fabulous career which nobody of the participants would have dreamed of, when IRON MAIDEN in the end of the seventies was originated in Londons East End, a classical working-class district.
"Burning Ambition" is the first german-speeking Fanbook that follows the more than 20 years old band-history from IRON MAIDEN from their first appearances in smoky pubs like Cart & Horses or Bridge House up to the already legendary gig ahead of more than 200.000 enthusiastic fans in Rio de Janeiro in 2001! The 192 pages (64 four-coloured), fitted out with dozens of exclusive live- and backstage-photographies and a cover-artwork by David Neckening, are stoutly filled with till now unpublished informations, which make the book to an absolute must for every true fan. Among other things the volume offers:
Because of the extensive variety of facts and informations this book is a music-historical reference book of persisting value and timeless actuality for every IRON MAIDEN-chronist and -collecter.
