I never seen Maiden live, but I saw the "Iron Maidens", an all chick cover band that played meticulous Maiden music. Drum and guitar solos were perfect. Only the vocals sounded different.
I saw them at a small club with their 3rd singer and a couple of years later I saw them at a large outdoor place when they reunited with Bruce. They had 3 lead guitarists; Dave Murray, Adrian Smith and Janick Gers. The loudest concert I've ever attended. My ears rang for 3 days.

That is one thing i always liked about Maiden, they play a big venue at a big city, then they will swing by a smaller city and play a small club. I saw them at a small club here in lubbock in about 96. I was standing three feet away from Dave Murry on the front row. Got a guitar pick from him.

It was at an Ozzfest. Maynard came out wearing a lime green polyester seersucker with a very wide Jesus tie and a pompadour. He announced his mother and made her stand up and wave. As soon as she sat down, he ripped off the wig and proceeded to strip to his Scooby Snack boxers.

Bob Dylan, James Taylor, John Prine, Paul Simon, McCartney & Lennon, Mac Rebbenack, Randy Newman, Brian Wilson.

I'm going to bed now. I'll probably add more when I'm clearheaded tomorrow.

Bob Dylan, hands down. He was a crappy musician, but a genius songwriter.

I agree, but the thread is of our time, or as I took it to be the more current time. Dylan was not in my time, and I'm barely 40.

Definitely agree. I love Tool and A Perfect Circle. He was here in Tennessee with Tool at Bonnaroo a few years ago. I'd like to add Ronnie Van Zant and Sarah McLachlan.
