Iron Maiden was with me live in the studio at the beginning of Hour I, boy did they ever look different from seeing them live and all the photo’s I’ve ever seen! But honestly, it was Fredericton’s ‘Run For Your Lives’ the cities Iron Maiden tribute band headed up by Aaron Hazlett! We chatted about why and how this tribute got started, what it’s like to do a tribute band.
‘Run For Your Lives’ is: Aaron Hazlett (Bruce Bruce)-Chris Mercer (Dave Murray)- James Morrison (Adrian Smith)- Steve Mansfield (Nico McBrain)
Also in this episode was the part 1 of the Maritime Metal & Hard Rock festival #5 feature which saw local resident Kevin B win himself a weekend pass to the festival happening this July 28/29th in Windsor, Nova Scotia. I also played music from 9 of the bands playing this years festival.
Be sure to tune in to the next Crazy Train for Part II of the feature on the bands playing this years MM&HR ‘fest #5 – Because I have 1 more Weekend pass to give away on air! $60. value, this pass will get you in to see the bands from Friday afternoon until Saturday /Sunday morning when they finish! Camping is NOT included with this pass!
Also on next weekends The Crazy Train, local show promoter and a woman who’s worked very hard for the regions Metal & Punk community, I’ll be joined by Sammie X, to talk about the Metal Survey that many of your helped take part in. The information that was gleaned from this survey a major help to the scene and Sammie and I will be talking about just how this information is going to be put to use to benefit our local/regional Metal & Punk scene.
