This Flamenco Guitar Performance of Iron Maiden's 'Wasted Years' Is Awesome
When you think Iron Maiden, the first thing that comes to your mind is flamenco, right? No? Us neither. But apparently, for two classical guitar inclined metal heads, the combination is a no-brainer.

Noisecreep has recently reported on an awesome video of Iron Maiden's 1986 classic "Wasted Years" given the flamenco treatment. Check it out below.

The emergence of this unique Maiden interpretation comes days after speculation that Iron Maiden might follow in the footsteps of Metallica by hosting their own festival. Rumors have been sparked after the band headlined a mammoth bill in San Bernardino on September 13th that also featured metal legends Megadeth, Anthrax, Testament and OverkillNicko McBrain noted that "Maiden Fest" could be a possibility:

"You never know, you just never know in this game. I think it would be great to do a Maiden Fest."
