Where were you between 1978 and 1984? Had you even been born yet? I know where I was, and to find out more, read on.
I am Steve “Loopy” Newhouse, author of “The Iron Maiden Years”. This is the life of an Iron Maiden roadie from 1978 to 1984.
From the early days of endless rehearsals and the Ruskin Arms, to the recording of Powerslave.
Like a backstage pass owner, you too can travel with me, one of the original Killer Krew, through the many band changes, beers, laughs, tears, problems, more beers, tours, albums and even more beers.
This is the true story, based on (bad) memory and (good) diary notes, of what we did, and where and when it happened.
Sex, drugs and rock n’ roll as has never been told in any official Iron Maiden document.
Steve “Loopy” Newhouse
The very first roadie for Iron Maiden, who ended up almost by chance in the dusty cellars where a legend was born, a band that at the time was still virtually unknown, but already promised great things. From there, he began his career as a roadie that would take him everywhere with Iron Maiden, from their first shows with the new singer to their establishment as a leading band on the international heavy metal scene.
