Paul Stenning, author of the GUNS N' ROSES book "The Band That Time Forgot" and the AC/DC book "Two Sides to Every Glory", has posted an unpublished excerpt from his recently released 130,000-word biography on IRON MAIDEN, entitled "30 Years of the Beast - The Complete Biography 1976-2006", at this location.
Commented Stenning: "I am going to show you a part the publisher did not want in the book. I'll leave you to forge your own opinion and I would like to hear it.
"Now, I normally would not include anything written by anybody else for obvious reasons, but this was different and I was intending to use it as just an extra at the end of the last main chapter. Simply, this was proof to me of MAIDEN's ongoing, integral relationship with fans. I thought it should be in the book but it was not, so here it is."
"30 Years of the Beast - The Complete Biography 1976-2006" is described by the author as "the remarkable true story of IRON MAIDEN from the year of their inception to the present day. This is a painstakingly deep and accurate history of the band, told by the author — a lifelong MAIDEN fan — and a whole cast of characters who were there at the time. These include: Janick Gers, Bruce Dickinson, Steve Harris, Paul Di'Anno, Derek Riggs, Neal Kay, Dennis Stratton and many more."
