Why do so many people hate him? Maybe he couldn't sing Bruce's songs as well as him but then again, who can? I dont think Blaze's two albums were as bad as people made them out to be, listen to "sign of the cross"
"clansman" and "lord of the flies". Blaze made some great albums with maiden so I wish people would give the guy a break. Maiden wouldn't have had him if he was shit would they? Quite a few fans hated bruce when he came in-"air raid siren comment". I'm not saying Blaze is better than Bruce, he's not but he still made bloody inspiring music!

:blaze: :blaze: :blaze:

I like Blaze. Always have done. I liked him in Wolfsbane, I liked him in Maiden, And I like his Solo band.
You can only sing the songs you're presented with. Everyone blames the dip in form in the mid '90s solely on Blaze, but it was 'Arry who wrote and produced most of the songs :|
Look at Virus for an example. Blaze's re-orchestrated version kicks the ass of the one 'Arry was happy to put out.

The main problem was his voice didnt suit most of Maidens songs IMO....

1 exzample... He Murdered THE TROOPER :shock:

I know he did a couple of Albums with Maiden....

But we know from the last tour how many people would rather hear 'The Classics'

And those people piss me off LOL
The new album was amazing, and it was even better live. They had good reason to play it in it's entirety, I don't get why many people hated it so much.

Run to the Hills and The Trooper aren't that good anyway :err:


*hides*

EDIT:: I voted that I liked him because..well..he's a good singer. Maybe not for Maiden, but he's a good singer.

The songs that were wrote for him were good, but if he sings another Bruce song I'll cry

Have you seen the footage from Spain in '99? It's not just Blaze that could Fuck up the Trooper.

voted for Blaze pretty good :blaze:

I really like Blaze (the messiah as called him Bouville :err:). He made some really great performances with Maiden on stage (except some songs like the trooper as rocky said) and registered some classics like the clansman, sign of the cross, futureal or lord of the flies. He offered one of the most fantastic maiden's album as 'X-Factor'. VXI was more crappy except 3 or 4 songs.

And his genius was that he never tried to be a Bruce's clone but went to Maiden with his own personnality and own voice :voice:

I really like his solo stuff specially the last album :fist:

:blaze:

It's not the Vocals that fuck up. It's the Opening guitar harmony(!) that is cringe worthy on this one>>>

blaze is good
but Bruce is the voice of Iron maiden.
there's so many fans who just didn't wanna change, and who didn't gave him opportunity.
