Iron Maiden Wearing Icarus Witch T-Shirts Since 2005

Band Photo: Iron Maiden (?)

Jason Myers, bassist and keyboardist for Pittsburgh-based trad-metal outfit Icarus Witch, recently posted a fun story about how Nicko McBrain had been spotted wearing Icarus Witch shirts in Iron Maiden photos. The first bits of the post are blockquoted here - for the full story, pictures of Iron Maiden in Icarus Witch T-Shirts and all things Icarus Witch, head on over to Icarus Witch's Facebook page.

In 2008, a friend of mine emailed me and said "Dude, how'd you get Nicko McBrain to where an Icarus Witch shirt?" I laughed. Honestly, have no idea how he got his shirt. But it appeared first in a spread in Brave Words & Bloody Knuckles magazine.

Shortly after, I was browsing the magazine section and noticed the June 2008 issue of Metal Edge magazine had Maiden on the cover. Nicko, once again sporting his Witch "True Pittsburgh Metal" T.

Unfortunately, he has his arms crossed in both pics, leading me to assume that either: A) Maiden also has a "No other band T-Shirts in our promo photos" rule and Steve reamed him out. or B) It was really cold in the photo studio that day. Haha. Either way, I've since noticed lots of photos of Nicko and this is a common pose for him in pix, so I'll assume the best.

The story continues at Icarus Witch's Facebook page....

I know that there are Maiden promo photos on which Steve wears a shirt of Golden Earring. MBG is that the arms crossed is Nicko's common pose.
