St Helens author's definite work on Iron Maiden's early years

St Helens Star: Neil Daniels' second book on Iron Maiden Neil Daniels' second book on Iron Maiden

MASSES of words have been written about Iron Maiden’s long and glorious career.

But Neil Daniels’ latest book “Killers - The Origins of Iron Maiden” is the first in-depth exploration of Iron Maiden’s early years from 1975-1983.

The rock and metal author’s chose to write a second book about the band because he felt it was "vital to the band’s development, with many line-up changes and false starts before Steve Harris found his winning team."

As well as painstaking secondary research, the 32 year-old from St Helens interviewed many people connected with the band including former members Dennis Stratton and Tony Moore, plus fan club chief Keith Wilfort.

Ryan LaMar has supplied the most up to date gig guide ever produced for these years and historian Barry Considine has helped make this work as accurate as possible and provided images.

Neil previously penned “Iron Maiden: The Ultimate Unauthorized History Of The Beast”. Neil Daniels is the author of over a dozen books on rock and metal and has contributed to many music magazines, fanzines and websites.
