Prowler was the first song from Iron Maiden's first album, "Iron Maiden". It was released in 1980, when I was 15 years old. The singer was Paul Di'Anno. He didn't last very long with Maiden. They re-recorded it with Bruce Dickinson on vocals 1988, and Metallica did a (poor) cover at some point.

Anyway, I don't sound like Di'Anno or Dickinson, I just sound like me - which is something I have come to accept ;)

All the instruments on this were played (or programmed in the case of drums) by my friend Tony Rhodes, who lays down an amazing guitar solo around 1'58.

Awesome, George, just awesome. Love the mix. Crisp and punchy, lending a sense of immediacy that brings back the original. Please, pass on a hearty "Bravo!" to your friend, Tony, for capturing that signature Iron Maiden "gallop." The very heart of Steve Harris.

Good stuff, do that some more.

Thanks Ron.

I enjoyed doing this a lot, so as you suggest I may do some more.

Tony tells me has about 40 Iron Maiden covers in various stages of completion all needing vocals. I not sure how much stamina I've got. I think I'll try at least one Dickinson era song though, perhaps "Run To The Hills" if he's done that one..!

Yea, that was excellent George. And your right about the guitar solo, nice job.

The vocals were right on the mark. Nothing wrong as far as what I hear...really good job. Nailed it.

Run to The Hills is definitely something I'd like to hear.
