Eddie or Iron Maiden Trivia

Here is some trivia about the creation of Eddie.

I first put this onto my facebook page and the Maiden fans enjoyed it.

So I thought I would make this a permanent feature of my website.

This is probably only of interest to Iron Maiden fans but it's the kind of stuff that even Iron Maiden don't know about.

Have fun folks.
