    Our lovely island's greatest claim to heavy metal fame:

    1983: January - Clive Burr departs. In comes the infamous Nicko McBrain (Life in Maiden is never the same again)... writing the album at Le Chalet, Jersey, Channel Islands, taking over the hotel for five weeks out of season and using the restaurant for rehearsal... Feburary/March: recording at Compass Point, Nassau, Bahamas... March/April: mixing at Electric Ladyland Studios, New York... April 28: Release "Flight of Icarus" single, charts at 11... May 2 to December 18: "World Piece Tour" - 140 concerts, starts in Hull, ending in Dortmund on December 18 in front of a Europe-wide TV audience... May 28: "Piece of Mind" released, charts No. 3... July 2: "The Trooper" (12)... October 8: Madison Square Garden (sold out).

    If only a tour with Legend had followed...
