Can you hear the Hammerhead over Reading? I bet the audience could as Samson played their set on the famous festival in 1981. 1980 - 1981 in fact was a period for a small glance at fame for the quartet formed by Paul Samson (who died of cancer in 2002), founding father of the band that carried his surname. The reason for success, if you can really speak of it, may not only have been the extraordinary playwise and style mix of the band, that is counted into the genre of NWOBHM, but the fact that Bruce Dickinson earned his merits in these two years as the vocalist.
