Biography

Dennis Stratton (b. November 9, 1954 in Canning Town, East London, England) is a guitar player who is best known as a former member of the British band Iron Maiden from October 1979 to October 1980.

Dennis Stratton was invited to join Iron Maiden as a second lead guitarist and backing vocalist by Steve Harris (Iron Maiden’s founder and bassist) after Harris had seen him in local gigs with Remus Down Boulevard. One of Stratton’s earliest filmed appearances with Iron Maiden was in a concert at London’s Marquee Club in October 1979. Dennis Stratton participated in the recording and production of the group’s first album, Iron Maiden in December 1979. He has also appeared in the home video recording Live At The Ruskin in early 1980 (released in 2004 as part of an Iron Maiden DVD set), Iron Maiden’s first video “Women in uniform,” the Women in Uniform EP, some subsequent singles, as well as in the band’s first appearance on British TV (“Running Free” performed live on Top of the Pops) and the Live!! +one live album. Stratton was also a member of Iron Maiden during their very successful European Kiss tour. Dennis Stratton left Iron Maiden in October 1980. Though there are different reasons for his departure flying around, Dennis has mentioned that he left due to conflicts with the manager. It is also known that musical differences contributed towards his departure.
