Nick, why do you keep locking active threads and starting new ones after I have repeatedly said not to do so?  This is getting really annoying.

Hey guys, are you in a band or something?
There were times when Rik and I were writing together when we almost died laughing. They were some of the most carefree stupid days I ever had, and I feel privileged to have shared them with him. And now he's died for real. Without me. Selfish bastard.

Saw an ad yesterday for a new movie called Seventh Son.  I wonder if Maiden will get on the soundtrack or anything.  Doubt it though.

Wow amazing news  :metal :metal

I thought there was a good chance they had secretly recorded an album, but with the news of Bruce's cancer I thought it was possible that got scrapped or pushed back since there was never any official announcement of anything.  Well I guess it is still getting pushed back, but from the wording, it sounds like its already completed.

Its vague, but "ready to go" to me means its recorded and given they had that christmas card with Eddie in the studio, that would make sense and its possible Bruce recorded the vocals before he noticed he had cancer.  BUt thats all speculation on my part.

"Bruce has asked me to thank everyone for their tremendous support and kind wishes. He has been extremely touched and encouraged by the genuine and affectionate response from our global family of Maiden fans.

Radiology is cumulative and continues to build in the body for around three weeks after treatment, so even though Bruce’s seven week course is completed, he’s had a long period of considerable pain and discomfort. He is happily now starting to recuperate and the pain will continue to abate and the swelling to reduce for the next couple of months at which time he will be able take an MRI scan. It is not until then that we will have full confirmation that the cancer has been completely destroyed. However prognosis continues to be extremely good and everyone is optimistic for a full recovery. Following the scan, we will officially update you on our website at the appropriate time, probably in late May.

After that, it will take a few more months for Bruce to get back to full fitness. Naturally the rest of the band are totally supportive and Maiden’s plans will be determined by Bruce’s progress.
Please continue your positive thoughts. They are very much appreciated.

Thanks
Rod Smallwood"

Love the power outage during Powerslave moment at MSG. Mostly because I was there and somewhat backstage atm, but also because of the coincidence.
