    I met him in Vegas. We stayed at the same hotel and I just happened to run into him while he came down to grab a sandwich. Got an autograph. He's actually my inspiration for fast fingers since about 1980. That's when me and my bro were learning to play bass. Damn he's fast....but I'm faster. So is my bro.

    Honest, I don't play much Maiden myself, really takes two Guitar players at least(lol) to pull off properly, but I still loved them, and to me, they were Harris's "Vision" above anyone else, have always been a huge fan!!!

    Great Minds thinking alike!!!

    Haha, I can play almost any instrument ever made passably, except the bass, and get teased about it, because "anyone" should be able to play bass.

    Yeah, right.

    :D

    Awesome you got to meet him!!!
