Iron Maiden's Steve Harris Explains Origins of Solo Album

(hennemusic) Iron Maiden founder and bassist Steve Harris recently announced the September 24th UK release (Sept. 25 in North America) of his debut solo album, "British Lion."

In a new session with Classic Rock magazine, Harris explains the origins of the album: "How it started was that Graham Leslie came to me with a cassette of songs which shows how long ago it was! and I thought they were really good, so I said I'd try to help his band do something," says Harris. "I ended up managing them and producing them and writing with them, although I kept that fact under wraps, to the point where even some people in the band didn't know. Anyway, when that band imploded I thought, 'Well, I've got to do something with this', because I thought the songs were so strong."

"Over the years I've kept in touch with Richie [vocalist Richard Taylor] and Graham, and then Richie was working with another guitarist called David Hawkins, who's a really talented guy, and so we started writing songs together," Steve continues. "So on the album there are six songs written with Richie and David, there's one with just me and Richie, and the others are me, Richie, Graham and a couple of other guys that were around at the time." more on this story
