Iron Maiden Won't Last Another Decade?

Iron Maiden founder Steve Harris expressed doubt that the legendary metal band will still be playing together a decade from now.

Harris spoke to The Quietus about his new solo album, "British Lion" and was asked "Obviously in Iron Maiden you're all really fit, you play football, the gigs themselves are obviously work outs. Is there any reason why you can't keep on doing this for another ten years?"

He responded, "I don't know about ten years but I think we've certainly got another five years in us but it's hard to say. As you get older it gets doubly hard to keep yourself fit and in shape. We do work really hard on doing that. It's important to us. We'd be selling ourselves and everyone else short if we didn't, so we do look after ourselves. It does get tougher. I don't play football much any more but I play a lot of tennis. Partly because I've had so many problems with my back that I can only play the odd match here or there. Unfortunately it's five years since I've played a full season of football and that's something that I miss a lot but I had to make a decision. " The interview covers a lot of ground, check it out here.
