Actions of Harris:
Maiden plays Allentown, PA. The song "Mission From 'Arry" was recorded post-gig this night. Seems that during the beginning of Nicko's drum solo, Steve's bass quit, so he told a roadie, to go and tell Nicko to try and extend his solo. Trouble was, the guy wasn't his drum roadie and didn't really know how to go about telling him, so he ended up waving his arms like a demented windmill and trying to yell over the noise. All that happened was that Nicko missed the message but got distracted enough to mess up his solo. After the gig, he clocked the guy, which prompted a huge 1/2 hour long argument between him and Steve. After most of that was over, Bruce went in with his Walkman, and started stirring it up again. Steve spotted the Walkman and said "some cunt's recording this", whereupon Nicko went to jump on the Walkman and smash it. Fine, except Bruce had a bunch of ideas and lyrics on the other side of the cassette for Powerslave, so he intercepted and clocked Nicko one. Now you'll see this as a b-side to 2 Minutes To Midnight, with writing credits to "Harris/McBrain, and engineered by Bruce Dickinson."
