Tony Moore, former Iron Maiden keyboardist, released a song in honor of his time in the band called "Made In 77," recalling the year he was part of Iron Maiden, features an original Moore composition which, he says, "represents how Iron Maiden would sound if it had remained in the band's lineup."
The musician joined the band in 1977 when it was not yet the worldwide success it is today. The line-up remained briefly leading to Moore's dismissal, as other members of the band believed the keyboard did not match their sound.

In 1977 Tony Moore answered an advert in the Melody Maker from a band called Iron Maiden that were looking for a Synth/Keyboard player - He drove from his home town of Bristol to do an audition and, after being offered the position, he made the move to London.
Despite leaving the band before they signed a deal and became successful, that decision changed his life and launched his musical career. That moment in time changed his life for ever and you might say he was "Made in 77", a play on words of "Maiden 77" the way the lineup he was part of is often referred to.
