Excellent posts by all, both comments & pics/links, etc. As of the 70 vote point, looks like Iron Maiden is the frontrunner for this particular list. Wish I could have added more choices to the list. I am sure The Beatles, Metallica, & Rush would have recv'd votes. Interesting poll results. Seems like Pinsiders are quite willing to give JJP & Stern some great ideas and feedback concerning possible future pinball machines.
You would think that it would be easy to do the artwork on an Iron Maiden pinball machine, as a tremendous amount of existing great artwork has already been created over the years.
To me it seems like we should be able to have another machine released called Iron Maiden. This has already happened in the past in the pinball world.
Concerning music band themed pinball machines, I agree w/ comments posted. I hope future machines released tend to incorporate more flexibility for owners/operators to select desired/favorite songs and portions of songs from a larger lists of songs of that particular band/artist. It can be done if manuf (and band) want to.
Need separate threads/polls to address other choices for future music themed machines, like to what kwiKimart and other suggests about modern rock bands, alternative, etc. What about country & western, bluegrass, or others? I could imagine hearing some fast paced banjo music during a particular mode or during multi-ball of a new release.
I think AC/DC and Guns N' Roses were both great choices of major rock n roll bands for pinball machines. Long live Rock n Roll ...and Pinball!
