I had *no* idea this was a Montrose song. The first time I ever heard it was by the band Axe. You remember "Rock n' Roll Party In The Streets?" Well they did this song on the same album. I went over 20 years thinking it was an original. So, when I heard the Iron Maiden version, I thought they were sorta propping up Axe in the same way that Metallica did for Diamond Head. You know...obscure song, made famous by huge Metal band? Little did I know at the time that this was Montrose. See...I only owned the self-titled Montrose CD. It's considered a "classic" Hard Rock record. Plus, I dig Sammy Hagar outside of Van Halen more than I did when he was their lead singer. (Side note: the HSAS record he did with Neal Schon is a "must own." Tough to find. But, well worth it.) Anyway...I came across a copy of the second (and final) Montrose CD w/Hagar, "Paper Money" recently, and bought it on a whim. Lo & behold! There's that "Axe" song! I was stunned. I should have owned that record long ago. I still think this is the best version. So, that's why I'm rolling it for today's "Hair Ball." Even though Maiden weren't a "Hair Band." I think you'll be OK with the exception to the rule. Right?
