Steve, you've called the video "12 Wasted Years", does it seem like twelve years since it began?

This Summer when we attended the Athens gig parto of the Somеwhere Back In Time Tour we met a lot of fans which were stunned by the fact that we traveled 1000 km just to see Maiden Live.

I decided to found a special section in our site where we will introduce you interesting people and their stories connected with Iron Maiden. I'm really happy that Rafael Kaplunovsky - Rafi is the founder of this section and I am grateful that he agreed to answer some questions that I ve asked him about his amazing tour..
