The latest addition to "Video of the Moment" is an odd choice. The band is named A.S.A.P., which stands for Adrian Smith and Project. The Adrian Smith in question had, to that point, been the lead guitarist of Iron Maiden (sing along with me, Dave . . . "Ruuun toooo the hiiiiiillls. Ruun fooor your liiiiiives). Then he did this solo album of sorts, and I figured it was worth a listen.
I'd expected some watered-down Maidenish fluff, but it turns out the album was completely different. More mainstream rock, but with an edge, and with a lot of grit--and, as it turns out, Smith is a pretty good vocalist. I liked it a lot. I almost wore out my cassette (yes, I'm that old--this was 1989). And when it occurred to me to look for it on YouTube I giggled. Out loud.
And then I found it. And here it is: "Fallen Heroes".
I really like this.
