From the Back Cover:

 

Formed in 1975 by a young east London bass player named Steve Harris, Iron Maiden has gone on to become one of the most stunningly successful rock acts in history. With more than 85 million album sales to its credit, the band remains hugely popular in every corner of the globe. In this, the first complete illustrated retrospective of Iron Maiden, music journalist Neil Daniels relates the band’s entire history and provides a complete discography, while respected heavy metal journalists and Iron Maiden experts, including Ian Christe, Martin Popoff, and Mick Wall, analyze the recordings. The stories behind the band’s formation, roster changes, recordings, and tours are complemented with nearly 500 images, including live performance and candid off-stage photographs, as well as memorabilia including handbills, gig posters, concert tees, backstage passes, buttons, ticket stubs, and of course, Eddie, Iron Maiden's iconic Derek Riggs–created mascot. Few bands have as widespread global appeal as Iron Maiden. Here, finally, is the book that gives the band its just treatment.
