On Steve Harris

For all you music lovers out there, especially bass players, here is a poem I wrote about one of my heroes, Steve Harris, bass player with Iron Maiden. It’s from my collection, The End. Hope you like it.

On Steve Harris

By David Jordan

 

 

Like Hendrix, you pushed your instrument

To the fore

And created a unique sound,

All your own.

 

Nobody plays like you.

 

Fast and melodious,

Full of sweet fills,

Your fingers tapping madly

Like a moth’s wings.

 

Slow and dulcet,

The calm exquisite hand

Only a real bass player

Can bring.

 

Fast or slow,

A true metal hero.

Proud:

You cut through like a sword.
