Gauchos – Iron Maiden The Trooper


I don’t know what else to say except… Rock n Roll. Somehow a defining snapshot of rock n roll for me. I don’t know Iron Maiden’s music at all and would hazard that I prefer this version over “The Maiden” live in my living room. They’d be too damn perfect, and with hair and spandex and lights. I could care less that it’s not polished, perfect or anything else that we’ve come to expect from a music that is best played raw. Kids in their bedroom bringing it back to base. Rock out. …and I hope the girls eardrums survive to sing lead for them someday.

Watch the video – if nothing else from 2:15- 3:30, kid plays some serious guitar
