Iron Maiden's Steve Harris Voted Greatest Metal Bassist
Iron Maiden's Steve Harris has been voted as heavy metal's greatest bassist by Loudwire. Harris was proved victorious after a month long tournament on the site, with his closet opponent being Dream Theater's John Myung. Other musicians who were in the running included Metallica bassists Cliff Burton, Jason Newsted and Rob Trujillo, Black Sabbath's Geezer Butler and the late Paul Gray from Slipknot. Harris' victory comes after speculation that Iron Maiden might follow in Metallica's footsteps and set up their own heavy metal music festival. After the success of the band headlining a massive San Bernardino show back in September that also featured Megadeth, Testament, Anthrax, Sabaton, Overkill and Warbringer, drummer Nicko McBrain speculated that "it would be great to do a Maiden fest." Do you think Harris' victory was deserved? Or would you have voted someone else into first place? Let us know in the comments.
