History of Eddie de Iron Maiden

But how was it that this character was born and to this day is still used by the band for more than 30 years?

The idea came from the band’s lead vocals, Dennis Wilck, who inspired KISS as he loved painting his face and spilling liters of fake blood in the middle of the stage. But Eddie had no form until the singer retired from the band and Steve Harris (bassist and leader) wanted to replace his friend’s personality in a behind-the-scenes figure. Rod Smallwood, the band’s manager, explained how the idea of having Eddie was created: “Eddie was born of the fact that the band members were very shy, so we had to invent a creature that would stand up for them.”

For this they needed an expert in Graphic Design like Derek Rigg who created the character and gave him different morphologies until the year 92. Eddie’s name was not exactly “Special” or thought for a long time in Harris’s head, but comes from something much simpler than usual: “Eddie’s name comes from the habit of many Londoners to eat the ‘h’ when they talk, so ‘Ed’ would be a derivation of ‘head’, and ‘Eddie’ would be a natural evolution of ‘Ed.” The Best Makeup of Eddie by Iron Maden In addition, on the official Facebook page of Iron Maiden they shared this video where they gave him a “good look” since there are hundreds of tutorials on Youtube trying to imitate one of the most famous “pets” of the genre but only this one was the one they liked the most.
