I was rummaging around in an old online picture file the other day and I found a few images that grabbed my attention.
Iron Maiden – Album cover from heavy metal band that I never really listened to…
Iron Maiden’s dog… Just try and tell me that there’s no connection here. Heavy metal band or not, Iron Maiden clearly had a family dog. Apparently, the dog was one of their early influences in their direction as a band.
In case you’re wondering, the dog is a hairless purebred Chinese Crested dog named Sam, and several years back, he won “The World’s Ugliest Dog Contest”. I’m certain that Sam was also a major influence for the Iron Maiden album “A Real Dead One” after he passed away in 2005, although band members refuse to publicly admit it.
Contrary to a persistent but false rumor, Sam was not dead but still alive when this picture below was taken.
You’re probably wondering why this post is called “Very Baked Brownies”… I’ll get to the point now.
