(Classic Rock) Iron Maiden drummer Nicko McBrain believes the band's longevity is a result of doing what they want to do despite prevailing trends. And he'd have been happy to play latest album The Book Of Souls in full on tour if it had been possible.

Their current road trip ends later this week with a performance at Wacken Open Air in Germany, which will be broadcast live online. McBrain tells Rock FM: "I said, 'We should do the lot - we should play every song off that record.' And obviously that would have been a bit of a push, because it's 92 minutes long. That's your show gone. It was a silly suggestion that was blown out. But it's such a great album."

He continues: "We have to be a little bit selfish in what we play live, what makes us feel happy when we go on stage and do older songs. We physically can't play a three or four hour set, which still wouldn't cover everything that everybody would want to hear." Read more and watch the full interview here.
