    I'm pitiful. Kay & I spent 4 days in Italy with Aldo Tagliapietra, and not only do I not include Le Orme, but I also forget Banco & PFM, Orme & Banco twice!.

    According to Wikipedia, Iron Maiden was formed on Christmas Day 1975 and the first gig was in May 1976. So technically they qualify by about one week.
