Gypsy Who Sold The World 13/7/20


During lockdown, a number of bands have aired acoustic or social distancing videos and Iron Maiden legacy band, Gypsy’s Kiss, are no different, as they have produced three acoustic versions of their original tracks plus an exceptional cover of David Bowie's ‘The Man Who Sold The World’, which is today's Track Of The Day. The classic, which is receiving a great deal of attention, will be featured on their ‘Acoustic Lockdown’ EP due for release later this year, with the band also currently working on their debut album, due for release early next year. Maiden founder/bassist Steve Harris and David Smith were founder members of Gypsy’s Kiss and in April 1974 they had their first paying gig at the Cart and Horses, Stratford, when they were orginally named Influence. Smith had been asked to reform the band many times over the years and finally did so for a charity festival in March 2018.
