Paul Di’Anno To Perform at The Galaxy
Iron Maiden may have enjoyed their biggest commercial success with singer Bruce Dickinson at the helm, but it was the original singer Paul Di’Anno who played the most important role in the British metal quintet’s early formative days.
Born in East London, Di’Anno grew up in England — spending his teenage years singing in various rock bands and working as a butcher and chef. He befriended bass player Steve Harris, who was looking to find a replacement for a singer that just left his up-and-coming heavy metal band Iron Maiden, in 1977.
Di’Anno wasn’t that impressed by what he’d previously seen of the band, but decided to try out for the band, and got the job immediately.
Iron Maiden soon found themselves as part of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal movement. 1979 saw the release of Maiden’s self-issued debut recording, “The Soundhouse Tapes”, which instantly sold out its initial pressing as the band built a devoted following.
Signed to EMI/Capitol shortly thereafter, Maiden set out on conquering the rest of the world. 1980’s self-titled release “Iron Maiden” quickly became a classic and influential debut, as the band merged a punk energy with metal riffs, serving as the blueprint for such future hard rock genres as thrash and speed metal. What also made the band more noticeable from all of the other Metal bands of that time was the look and image of their frontman Di’Anno, who refused to conform to the regular metal look, but instead chose to stick to his own Punk/Jack the Lad type look and attitude.
