We went to the Iron Maiden “Legacy of the Beast” show in Copenhagen, and this guy, Ken “Pooch” Van Druten, was the new FOH engineer.
Introducing: Ken “Pooch” Van Druten! This lovely bloke here is all the reason that the sound is just the way it is. Look at him groove on this beautiful play through of “Revelations” live in Berlin, Germany. Everybody needs to have someone on the mixer loving your music just like him. Brilliant! @tourpooch #audioengineer #soundboard #mixingdesk #legacyofthebeast #ironmaiden #quality
Apparently, “Pooch” believes that if you can hear the singer people will be happy with the show. I’d say that is slightly understated, as he made sure we could hear everything. We stood right next to him and it was fun to watch him work.
The show was great, with lots of energy from the band and nice props. It was quite probably the best of their shows I’ve been to, and I’ve previusly been to their Somewhere Back In Time, Final Frontier and Book of Souls (twice) shows.
