35 Years Ago Today

On this date in 1982 I went to Tower Records in Mountain View, California with my best friend at the time and we bought this new album that came out today. 

We were already fanatical fans after finding the Killers album in the Tower import section a year or so before. I later found this Japanese import because I collected all my favorite albums on Japanese wax back then. Maiden are the band that made me forget about Van Halen. Four months later Maiden visited The Bay Area for the first time and it was game over, man.. Game over.

Anyway, 35 years today.  Crazy.. Hope I die before I get old.. and to quote the title song:  

"Just what I saw in my old dreams...  Were they reflections of my warped mind staring back at me?"

Maiden.  Always.
