Steve Harris Happy Hammer

In celebration of West Ham destroying Tottenham 3-0 yesterday here's a little tribute to the best bass playing hammer fan in the world.
1Iron Maiden

Rime of the Ancient Mariner - beefs up the sound in harmony with the guitar where it matters, adds menacing tension at the right spots, then the lulling middle 'becalmed ocean' section, then drives the finale with that great springy sound he can get - perfect example of where he supports the song without too much wankery but still adds so much.
2Iron Maiden
Seventh Son of a Seventh Son

Only the Good Die Young - plenty of classic galloping stuff holding the song together and love that widdly bit in the middle
3Iron Maiden

Killers - during the build up at the start, so cool with the dianno yaiiiy screams on top
4Iron Maiden
Iron Maiden

Phantom of the Opera - quality throughout but the little triplet halfway through, he nicked it from Budgie and it's dead simple but I've always loved it
5Iron Maiden

Innocent Exile - opening bassline, sounds very different to most of his stuff
6Iron Maiden

Powerslave - Harris's melodic basslines during the amazing middle section.
7Iron Maiden
The Number of the Beast

Invaders - i fucking hate the chorus in this song but the bass is brilliant throughout
8Iron Maiden

Wrathchild - epic bass riff owns the song
9Iron Maiden
Iron Maiden

Transylvania - one of my favorite riffs of all time, bassline is wonderful i really like the little fills he puts in almost like a lead guitarist would
10Iron Maiden

Murders in the Rue Morgue - the great opening harmonics and melody and then booom booom booom yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaagallopgallop, killers is such an overlooked album and is up there with their so-called classics
