“Senjutsu,” Iron Maiden’s 17th studio album, dropped today, and drummer Nicko McBrain returns to talk about the writing and recording of what’s sure to become another Maiden classic. He talks about recording just before the pandemic shutdown, sitting on the album during the pandemic, and the decision to release it now. He speaks to Maiden’s tour plans, the songs he’s most looking forward to playing, his favorites from the new album, and the band’s chemistry and working relationship. He also shares some great trainwreck stories from past tours, the tale behind how he got his name, plans for his side project tribute bands, and his thoughts on the recent loss of the late, great Rolling Stones drummer, Charlie Watts.
