Derek Riggs Iron Maiden artist interview

Metal Swap Talk interviews Derek Riggs, creator of Eddie and artist for the early Iron Maiden art. He tells us about living in London in the 1970s, being influenced by Jack Kirby, living in America, his opinions on Salvador Dali, who he wanted to work with, and his future travel plans. High Dive in San Diego hosted our interview, and we talk about a unique event coming up.

Meet Derek at Comic Con or at The High Dive on Sunday, July 21 2019 at 5:00pm.
