    I remember reading a rock magazine (back in the day) and Axl Rose supposedly went through a phase when he would listen to this song before G n' R gigs.

    Heard this song for the first time in a while, I thought for sure I accidentally switched to Iron Maiden.

    Like the Live Crime version, it sounds more powerful.

    It reminds me of Iron Maiden too. Not only this song but many ones from '88 Mindcrime. Thanks to Tate's high voice range. In addition, he has never tried to hide the truth that Dickenson is his biggest influence. If you ask me what would I prefer: Iron Maiden or Queensryche, I would say the second one. Love them more :)

    I love this tune but it ALWAYS reminds me of Maiden. Not saying that's a bad thing though.
