On Monday The Raven Age's George Harris Picked Music Over Pro-Sports Career was a top story. Here is the recap: (TeamRock) The Raven Age guitarist George Harris has revealed how he gave up on a promising career as a professional footballer (soccer) to pursue a life in metal.

Harris, 25, is the son of Iron Maiden bassist Steve and his dream job was always to be a soccer star. He takes after his father both when it comes to music and in his love for sport, with Steve having once been on the radar of scouts for his beloved West Ham United.

George had trials with various clubs and was made an offer by one Norwegian team, but opted to put his efforts into The Raven Age instead. Speaking to TeamRock after the band's performance on the Sophie Lancaster Stage at Bloodstock Saturday, Harris says: "My dream job was always to be a professional footballer.

"My dad never pushed me towards music, but I did start playing the guitar when I was 14 and then started writing songs when I was 17. But I was so into football and had loads of trials for different teams. When I was in Norway for trials I wrote a lot of songs that ended up being played in The Raven Age." Read more - here.
