Adrian Smith QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
A band is sort of like a star. It reaches a peak and burns out. To have five guys working in perfect harmony longer than a couple years is difficult.
Quotation of Adrian Smith
A lot of people sort of regard me as a melodic guitar player amongst the fury.
Quotation of Adrian Smith
After a really great gig at Fiddlers Green in Denver on Tuesday we travelled the next day to Los Angeles for a two day break before the show at the Greek Theatre.
Quotation of Adrian Smith
As a musician it's very easy to get influenced by other people and say, 'God, that sounds really cool, let's do something like that.' We managed to resist that.
Quotation of Adrian Smith
As far as the crowd goes, we were expecting a fairly laid back LA attitude, but were nicely surprised by the tremendous reaction. They were with us right from start to finish.
Quotation of Adrian Smith
Blaze was leaving Maiden and it seemed like the right timing for Bruce and I. It all just came together.
Quotation of Adrian Smith
Bruce lets us get on with playing. But at concerts we all connect really.
Quotation of Adrian Smith
But the next album probably would have sold nothing. Fans would have known it's just another bank job.
Quotation of Adrian Smith
Coming back to the band I approach songs I used to play 10 years ago quite differently now. That's added a different dimension to the band.
Quotation of Adrian Smith
Dickinson really knows how to connect with an audience. You can have the best band musically in the world, but you need someone who also can breach the gap between the audience and the band. He does it very well.
Quotation of Adrian Smith
I appreciate now stepping out on stage in front of Maiden's audience. You've just got to throw yourself into the whole thing.
Quotation of Adrian Smith
I did need to do some other things. If I hadn't I wouldn't be back in the band today, and I wouldn't be as happy as I am now.
Quotation of Adrian Smith
I enjoyed being able to share with student leaders how I try to apply God's principles with my service in the Nebraska Legislature. What an experience to make new friends, learn about politics, and develop your skills as a leader!
Quotation of Adrian Smith
I guess the word must be getting around that we're back with a vengeance.
Quotation of Adrian Smith
I spent the down time with my family and also managed to get in a bit of bonus for me. I love playing the shows, but it's really nice to get some time to ourselves.
Quotation of Adrian Smith
I think a lot of people are going to want to see it, simply because I've been out on the road with Bruce for the last couple of years, and from what I have gathered on the road, people will be very interested to hear it.
Quotation of Adrian Smith
I think it will sound amazing as we all play slightly differently. In a concert situation it will be interesting as well, because it keeps changing the focal point which makes it interesting from an audience perspective.
Quotation of Adrian Smith
I think it's going to be really cool, because of the atmosphere between us. There's a good feeling about this tour and you can sense the anticipation and the buzz about it.
Quotation of Adrian Smith
I think they think we are a heavy metal band. But there's a lot more to the band, more progressive elements and subtle elements.
Quotation of Adrian Smith
I've seen everyone individually over the years, but it's the first time we've all been together in a working situation for a long time - it must be almost 8 years in times of the band. We built up our own language over a period of time. We fell back into that straight away.
Quotation of Adrian Smith
If ever there was a band where three guitars could compliment the music, it was Maiden. There are a lot of guitar harmonies and guitar parts.
Quotation of Adrian Smith
It feels great. It feels better than ever being back.
Quotation of Adrian Smith
It just felt like it was the right time, sort of a new beginning with the year 2000 and new blood in the band.
Quotation of Adrian Smith
It's great to be playing back with the guys again. Everyone's relaxed and happy about it and we're looking forward to playing all the classic Maiden songs on this tour. It's kind of uncanny.
Quotation of Adrian Smith
It's like a crowd cheering for their favorite soccer team. They are willing you on. You feel all this great energy coming from them.
Quotation of Adrian Smith
It's pretty heavy stuff, modern hard rock I call it.
Quotation of Adrian Smith
Like the album, we try to take all the ingredients from the best shows we've done in the past 15 odd years. We've gone back to doing a real spectacular show.
Quotation of Adrian Smith
More importantly, it was a chance for us all to meet up and hang out for a couple of hours and we started to scratch the surface talking about the musical side of things. I think you need the chemistry as the band is made up of such personalities and that makes it what it is.
Quotation of Adrian Smith
Our goal is to make a great album for the fans and ourselves no matter who wrote the songs. It's a sort of 'Check your ego at the door kind of thing.' I think we managed to do that.
Quotation of Adrian Smith
That means everyone only presents their best work. None of us gets complacent. We've got to have a bit of friction in the band. It's all about chemistry.
Quotation of Adrian Smith
That's why the situation in Maiden is so great now. We went out and expressed ourselves (musically) in other ways and have come back looking from a different perspective at the band. We're able to transfer some fresh energy.
Quotation of Adrian Smith
The band has always stayed close to its fans and not sold out. That's a very rare thing. I can see how rare that is having been outside of the band for eight years. Maiden has integrity. I think people appreciate that.
Quotation of Adrian Smith
The most important thing is we have never sounded like anybody. It's a very different sound.
Quotation of Adrian Smith
The only bad part of the show was when Davey fell and injured his little finger of his left hand during the encores. He is having the injury looked at by a doctor and hopefully it's not too serious.
Quotation of Adrian Smith
The photo session went really well, apart from the fact I had flu. It went very well.
Quotation of Adrian Smith
The show itself generally went really well for us with the onstage sound being good.
Quotation of Adrian Smith
The songs are long and I think there's a lot of space there for three guitar players. It will compliment the music and it's never really been done before in the rock and metal field - obviously Skynyrd, but I don't think in the metal field it's been done, which gives it an exciting dimension.
Quotation of Adrian Smith
There's a lot of interesting stuff we can work with - but I don't think it means we're going to have 98 guitar solos in each song, I think it'll be more of a textural thing.
Quotation of Adrian Smith
We also heard that we broke the record for merchandise sales at the venue. That makes it two in a row 'cos the same thing happened at Denver!
Quotation of Adrian Smith
We are one of the last heavy metal bands. Iron Maiden has always been unique.
Quotation of Adrian Smith
We came pretty close. You set high standards for yourself. We're pretty proud of it.
Quotation of Adrian Smith
We do get a lot of feed back from the Internet and there have been constant rumours for the last couple of years of a reformation of the 80's line up.
Quotation of Adrian Smith
We tried to take all the good things about Maiden over the last 15 to 20 years and distill it into one record.
Quotation of Adrian Smith
We try and stay out of the corporate side of it. The band has never compromised. At some point in our career we could have made a certain type of record and sold millions of units, as they are called.
Quotation of Adrian Smith
We wanted to take the progressive elements, the melodic side of it and the anthem kind of songs, and the heavy element, and get a great producer and put it down on record.
Quotation of Adrian Smith
We've got five guys in the band writing songs. The competition is fierce. At the same time, I wouldn't step back into a situation if I thought I'd be frustrated.
Quotation of Adrian Smith
You've got to look toward the whole rather than just your own situation. We all have our own ideas. Sometimes there's a bit of a conflict, but that's good.
