In South Florida they have a recording studio that used to take in any and all forms of talent that wanted to record. They were being graded on their output and needed bands to fill the space. One of my first bands were in there recording and between takes we were going outside to catch a breath of fresh air, a smoke and a drink when we heard that unmistakable voice a few studios over from us. I knew right then and there who it was. They were mixing this album there. I'll NEVER forget hearing that scream on the opening track...by itself.
No kidding!? That's awesome! I didn't see JP until the Turbo tour and I didn't see IM until the PIece of Mind tour when they were headliners (can't remember who opened). Hell of a memory you have there, for sure.
Thanks Lynch, I was there to see Judas Priest, but I was very impressed with Iron Maiden as well. Toward the end of the show, Rob Halford rode his Harley up on the stage, that was pretty cool. I was expecting Maiden to bring the mechanical "Eddie" up on stage but he never showed up. Later on I heard it was because the ceiling over the stage was too low. I thought that was weird because earlier in the year, Blue Oyster Cult had their "Godzilla" up on the stage. I would think Godzilla would be taller than Eddie but I could be wrong.
Btw, Blue Oyster Cult was touring the "Fire of Unknown Origin" album that year, Foghat opened for them, they were touring the "Girls to Chat & Boys to Bounce" album.
