During his teens he played football, and was even asked to play for West Ham United, as he was spotted by Wally St. Pier. However, due to his interests in rock music, he made the decision to play drums, and later he transferred to the bass guitar.
Before Steve founded Iron Maiden, he played in several bands, including Gypsy`s Kiss, and Smiler, however, he left the second band, as the other members though his songs weren’t good enough for them.
On Christmas day of 1975 the band under the name Iron Maiden was created by Steve Harris, and vocalist Paul Day, guitarists Dave Sullivan and Terry Rance, and drummer Ron Matthews. However, the line up changed several times, and current members of the band are Steve Harris, Dave Murray, Bruce Dickinson, Adrian Smith, Janick Gers and Nicko McBrain.
