They say all good things must come to an end, but why this??? It looks like Iron Maiden bass player Steve Harris has been quoted as saying that the band probably only has another five good years until they hang it up. While it’s understandable what he’s saying about getting older and not wanting to sell the fans short, I think everyone is missing the important question that this whole thing is raising. AREN’T THE MEMBERS OF IRON MAIDEN IMMORTAL?!?! What’s next, Manowar are mere flesh and blood? The world is coming apart at the seams people.

Steve Harris had the following to say about Iron Maiden touring forever:
“I don’t know about 10 years, but I think we’ve certainly got another five years in us but it’s hard to say. As you get older it gets doubly hard to keep yourself fit and in shape. We do work really hard on doing that. It’s important to us. We’d be selling ourselves and everyone else short if we didn’t, so we do look after ourselves. It does get tougher. I don’t play football much anymore, but I play a lot of tennis. Partly because I’ve had so many problems with my back that I can only play the odd match here or there. Unfortunately, it’s five years since I’ve played a full season of football and that’s something that I miss a lot, but I had to make a decision.”
