Dave Murray “Iron Maiden”

As a boy, Murray was a fanatical football player and fan, as well as a keen cricketer. But his family was poor – his father was disabled and his mother worked part-time as a cleaner – and the family never settled anywhere long enough for Murray to establish himself on any of the schools’ teams he could have played for. By his reckoning, he had been to a dozen different schools by the time he left for good at the age of 16.


Murray developed an interest in rock music when he was 15 after hearing Voodoo Child by Jimi Hendrix on the radio. From then on, everything changed. He got his first guitar and would practice along with records up to seven hours a day. He formed his first band, a trio called Stone Free which also included Adrian Smith (Guitar/Vocals) who later became a member of Iron Maiden.
