A friend of mine called Ritchie Hudson; I first met him at his fruit and veg stall in Wood Green when I used to help me mum with the shopping on a Friday after school, also worked at the local Berry’s music shop in Haringey. He’d let me go over to his mums and jam on his kit until he got home from work on the barrow. We’d sit and jam along to records and then he’d show me a lick or two, I used to really look forward to those times. Do you ever wish you could get up & run around on stage instead of being stuck behind the drum kit?

Nicko - No it doesn’t bother me in the least mate. I’m very, very happy right where I am. What does your drum kit consist of? How many toms, bass pedals… Nicko - My kit consists of nine toms, snare and bass drum. 6,8,10,12,13,14,15,16,18 floor. 14x5 snare, 24x18 bass drum. “Paiste” cymbals 14 hats, 12,16,17,19,20,24 power crash’s 20 medium crashes 17,18, rude, 22 china all the Dimension line.

You have been playing in Maiden for more than 20 years. What keeps you going? Nicko - One of the main reasons that I have been playing so long with the guys is simple; we love what we do together. The music is the entity of Maiden my friend it’s that simple. In almost every band, the guy who plays drums is the least famous. How do you feel about that? Would you like a bigger part? Nicko - You are kidding aren’t you! I am the most famous guy in the band. I am most definitely the best looking and most handsome geezer out there. That is why the rest of the guys like me to hide behind such a humongous kit. What was the best and the worst ever live show with Maiden? Nicko - Best Maiden live show was Donnington 1998. Worst live show was Chicago 2000. Why do you handle your drumstick on the extremity? Nicko - I use my left hand stick back to front as t gives me more weight and therefore more power for the snare hits. Is there any Maiden song(s) that you have never played live, but would like to? Nicko - Yes I would love to play” Alexander the Great” live I think it would be awesome. Do you like to play drums on your free time and if you do, how much do you play in a day?

odd Trade shows in Europe. When I’m home in Florida I practice maybe twice a week for a couple of hours. In all the rock bands you’ve been and seen who’s the best singer you have encountered?

Nicko - I would very much like to jam with Jack Bruce (Cream) and also (Jimmy Bain). I’ve always loved the way they play. I heard your wife also has got a band. What is the band’s name and what does she play? Is their CD available? Nicko - Yes my wife does have a project underway; we’re just going out under her name Rebecca McBrain. There is a CD kicking around at the moment titled Rebecca McBrain and friends. It’s not out on the market but I’ll let you guys know through the Internet if it becomes available. Nicko, how much pair of drumsticks you are breaking while one concert and the whole tour? Nicko - I will go through five or six pairs of sticks a night, multiply that by five = thirty pairs a week, multiply that by the months on tour, six = one hundred and eighty pairs total, give or take a few extras. What was the most funny and the most serious moments until now? Nicko - The funniest moments on this tour were when we played in Philadelphia at the front of the stage there were three or four couples of old fart punters and they were eating and drinking through the show, it was really weird to see this going on, there was also a ‘Kin waitress delivering said grub to them. What is the world coming to? The worst part was when Janick fell from the stage in Mannheim. It was an experience that I do not want to live through again.

Portuguese Music

Portugal is internationally known in the music scene for its traditions of fado, but the country has seen a recent expansion in musical styles, with modern acts from rock to hip hop becoming popular. If Amรกlia is still the most recognizable Portuguese name in music, today the biggest exportations are bands like Moonspell (metal), SpotlightInternacional (fado and Desgarrada), Madredeus (fado and folk inspired), Buraka Som Sistema (electro/kuduro/breakbeat), Da Weasel, Sandro G (hip hop), Blasted Mechanism (experimental electro-rock) or Wraygunn (rock, blues), and artists like Mariza (fado). The musicality of the Portuguese language has also inspired non-native speakers to use it in their recordings, for example Mil i Maria. Regional folk music remains popular too, having been updated and modernized in many cases, especially the northeastern region of Trรกs-os-Montes. Dance, Rock, pop, house and Hip Hop are among the most popular musical styles in Portugal; however, the recent arrival of revivalist folk bands, such as Deolinda, led to a newfound interest in this type of music.

Classical Music Portuguese music reflects its rich history and privileged geographical location. These are evidenced in the music history of Portugal, which despite its firm European roots, nevertheless reflects the intercontinental cultural interactions begun in the Portuguese discoveries. A short list of past and present Portuguese musicians with important contributions must necessarily include the names of composers Pedro de Escobar, Manuel Cardoso, Duarte Lobo, Filipe de Magalhães, Carlos Seixas, Diogo Dias Melgás, João Domingos Bomtempo, Marcos Portugal, José Vianna da Motta, Luís de Freitas Branco, Joly Braga Santos, Fernando Lopes-Graça, António Fragoso and Emmanuel Nunes; organists such as António Carreira or Manuel Rodrigues Coelho; singers such as Luísa Todi, Elisabete Matos or José Carlos Xavier; pianists such as Maria João Pires or Sequeira Costa; cellists such as Guilhermina Suggia;

Fado Fado (fate in Portuguese) arose in Lisbon as the music of the urban poor. Fado songs are typically lyrically harsh, with the singer resigned to sadness, poverty and loneliness, but remaining dignified and firmly controlled. Many claim that fado origins are much older, back to the 15th century, when women cried with longing for their husbands that went to the never sailed seas; others also claim that Arabic inprint in Fado is visible, especially in instruments. Arabs left Portugal in the 13th century , but their influence in crafts and music prevailed. Fado is often

sung with a Portuguese guitar. Late in the 19th century, the city of Coimbra developed a distinctive scene. Coimbra, a literary capital for the country, is now known for being more refined and majestic. The sound has been described as “the song of those who retain and cherish their illusions, not of those who have irretrievably lost them” by Rodney Gallop in 1936. A related form are the guitarradas of the 1920s and 30s, best known for Dr. Antonio Menano and a group of virtuoso musicians he formed, including Artur Paredes and José Joaquim Cavalheiro. Student fado, performed by students at Coimbra University, have maintained a tradition since it was pioneered in the 1890s by Augusto Hilário. Starting in 1939 with the career of Amália Rodrigues, fado was an internationally popular genre. A singer and film actress, Rodrigues made numerous stylistic innovations that have made her probably the most influential fadista of all time. A new generation of young musicians have contributed to the social and political revival of fado music, adapting and blending it with new trends. Contemporary fado musicians like Mariza, Mísia and Camané have introduced the music to a new public. The sensuality of Misia and other female fadistas (fado singers) like Maria Ana Bobone, Cuca Roseta, Cristina Branco, Ana Moura, Katia Guerreiro, and Mariza has walked the fine line between carrying on the tradition of Amália Rodrigues and trying to bring in a new audience. Mísia and Carlos do Carmo are also well known fado singers.Ricardo Ribeiro and Miguel Capucho are one of the best male fado singers of the new generation.

Political Music During the reign of the fascist regime music was widely used by the left-wing resistance as a way to say what could not be said, singing about freedom, equality and democracy, mainly through metaphors and symbols. Many composers and singers became famous and persecuted by the political police, some of them being arrested or exiled, such as Zeca Afonso, Paulo de Carvalho, José Mário Branco, Sérgio Godinho, Adriano Correia de Oliveira, Manuel Freire, Fausto, Vitorino, Júlio Pereira and some others.

Afonso helped form nova canção music, which, after the 1974 revolution, gained socially-aware lyrics and became canto livre. The biggest name in canto livre was Brigada Víctor Jara, a group that seriously studied and were influenced by Portuguese regional music. After the Carnation Revolution, that same music was used to support left-wing parties. Political ideas and causes, like the agrarian reform, socialism, equality, democratic elections, free education and many other were a constant presence in these songs lyrics, often written by well-known poets like José Barata-Moura, Manuel Alegre or Ary dos Santos.

José Afonso began performing in the 1950s; he was a popular roots-based musician that led the Portuguese roots revival. With artists like Sérgio Godinho and Luís Cília,

Rock and other The rock in Portugal was born in the 80s of the 20th century. Its beginners were Rui Veloso and Jorge Palma, among others. An example of a popular Portuguese rock band, having a long history, is Xutos & Pontapés who’ve been playing for over 30 years and are known widely throughout Portugal, as well as Mão Morta , a unique and controversial group with 25 years of existence. Well known solo singers include Rui Veloso, Jorge Palma, and Pedro Abrunhosa. Blasted Mechanism (experimental electro-rock), RAMP (metal), ThanatoSchizO (metal), Faithfull (soft rock), Riding Pânico (post rock), Linda Martini (post/noise rock), Ornatos Violeta (indie rock) or Green Echo (experimental dub) are other important acts.

Portuguese hip hop (Hip Hop Tuga) The beginning of the 21st century was the origin of a new wave of Portuguese Hip Hop singers, who adapted foreign sounds to the Portuguese reality and who sing in Portuguese. Some of the best examples are Da Weasel, Boss AC and Sam the Kid.

Heavy metal The biggest exponent of heavy metal music in Portugal is the band Moonspell, originally from Lisboa and who have achieved some international recognition, mainly in Finland, the Netherlands, Italy and Turkey.
