Good morning my friends, I am hitting you up as the morning coffee circulates and hope that you had a very “Happy Thanksgiving” if you are someone who is celebrating that holiday. I have to admit that I close my eyes and still see food so I will be taking it easy today. As the morning manifests, it was great to see this news about an Iron Maiden and West Ham United product collaboration since the holidays are upon us and its time to buy some gifts. Take a look.
The Press Release:
Die With Your Boots On is the name of a unique collaboration between Iron Maiden and West Ham United. Named after the 1983 song of the same name and driven by die-hard West Ham fan and founder member of the band Steve Harris, this partnership brings together two institutions with shared origins in London’s East End.
Harris has been flying the flag for West Ham on stage for decades, with his bass guitar even featuring the club’s iconic logo. His love for the Hammers goes back to 1965, as he recollects, “I went to see West Ham play against Newcastle when I was 9 and my mate was 10. We jumped on a bus and went to the game, and they won 4-3 and that was it. I was hooked!”
