10 essential guitar albums - Iron Maiden 'The Number Of The Beast'


“For me, this is the first record that really brought heavy metal and guitar music into focus; it took the spotlight away from pop. It has some of my favorite lead guitar tones – very biting and intense. It brings back the glory days of metal.

I’ve always thought that both guitarists were almost equal, but something about Adrian Smith’s playing stuck out a little bit. He was quieter, whereas Dave Murray was more ‘out there’ with his tone. But they both worked beautifully together – two guys who really know how to complete each other's thoughts."
