#43 - Hallowed be thy Name - Iron Maiden - The Number of the Beast

Many fans place this as their number 1 Maiden track. Perhaps I am a little tired of it, and that is why is has a relative poor showing on my list. In any case it is a brilliant song, from the greatest record of all time.

To me it has lost its lustre live, first, Nicko never really got it right, and now Jan plays Adrian's solo, so it is different. I also used to enjoy how Dave and H would go up to the risers at the end of this song and through the solos, it was very cool, and now that does not happen.

I agree with you T-bone about this one. I also liked it better when it was just Dave and H.
