Former IRON MAIDEN Guitarist Dennis Stratton Has 'No Regrets'

Almost every person who support metal music know the existence of legendary and most successful metal band from Britain, the Iron Maiden. All of the band members are well-known trough out the world, their trio guitarists, Adrian Smith, Dave Murray and Janick Gers are popular with their guitar riffs on songs like The Trooper, Hallowed By the Name and Invaders. But one thing that people almost forget is that Iron Maiden did had another amazing guitarist, he is Dennis Stratton (picture) . He who was still in Iron Maiden line-up when they landed major record deal with EMI back in 1979 said he has no regrets quitting Iron Maiden.

Dennis Stratton (Iron Maiden 1979/80) said " There were disagreements and arguments and when you're young you make your choices, but I have no regrets. There were other guitarists before me and there have been several others since. When I left in 1980, I joined a band called Lionheart. We signed to CBS and spent four years touring America. Later, in the '90s, I was in a band called Praying Mantis and spent 15 years between the UK and Japan.''

Dennis Stratton currently lives in Saffron Walden, but his love affair with east London in unquestionable. As well as his obvious connections to The Ruskin Arms in Manor Park, where Iron Maiden plied their early trade. Dennis Stratton added "It will be great to do all the old Pink Floyd stuff. I've got a great affiliation with Canning Town and the surrounding areas. I grew up behind the original Bridgehouse venue, Clarence Road, and that place was a life-saver for us as grew up. It was where we learned to play guitar, after all!" Source :
