Classics Iron Maiden: Stratton introduced the twin guitars
2021 Yamaha Tracer 7 GT Announced, Not Coming to USA
Another machine we’d like to see make its debut in the USThe 7 GT is powered by the same crossplane twin that’s found in the MT-07, which has already proven itself to be a fun and capable powerplant. Plopping that mill into an upright touring motorcycle would put a lot of midsize, legacy touring rides currently available in the US, like the Versys 650 or V-Strom 650, on high alert. Especially if the bike stayed at or below $8,500.
Without short-term guitarist Dennis Stratton there would be no "twin guitars" at Iron Maiden. At least not from the first album.

Dennis Stratton,guitarist from 1980 to 1981, spoke about his musical influence on the band in an interview with Robert Cavuoto of Sonic Perspectives. Legitimate polling to mark the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nomination of the British NWOBHM heroes. It is clear that over 40 years ago the boys did not know what a revolutionary album they were recording with their debut. “When Maiden signed the deal with EMI in London in 1979, they went from a bar combo to a big band overnight.

The Rebel, all grown up with a 1,084cc parallel-twin engine.The Rebel has long been known as the low-displacement, affordable, easy-to-ride bike that makes a great starter machine for new riders. Even after the heavy model revision three years ago, the Rebel remained perfectly suited to new (or newer) riders. Even so, it was clear that Honda had ambitions to reimagine its cruiser line more broadly. The new Rebels were designed to appeal to younger riders; to fit into an urban landscape filled with commuters and day-trippers. They weren’t smaller, raked-out versions of more traditionally styled cruisers or lightly altered versions of the previous Rebel design.
Iron Maiden then consisted of only three men., Dave Murray and Paul Di’Anno. They had neither a permanent drummer nor a second guitarist. ”Stratton was given the THE SOUNDHOUSE TAPES demo back then. “I've always played twin guitar before, and bringing that style to Maiden changed their sound drastically.

They just let me do it, so I brought in the twin guitar style, which is my opinion after making the songs bigger and wider. And that seemed to work. ”True enough, you can hear the result on the debut IRON MAIDEN. “And that style still works today with three guitarists. When we recorded the album in 1979, we were in the middle of the Metal For Muthas tour supporting Praying Mantis. We really had to hurry to get the record done, nothing else mattered. After all, one tour had to be completed, and the next one withwas already ahead. ”
Stratton goes on to explain how the twin guitars he introduced at Iron Maiden became an integral part of the Maiden sound of the later years . Especially when the band incorporated more progressive elements into their music. “It makes me proud to be able to say that this style of play at Maiden comes from me and continues to this day. At that time I had done the complete preproduction of KILLERS. When Adrian Smith came in to record the things, he had to learn this way of playing first. ”
