Eddie: Greatest. Mascot. EVAR.

Seems like this would make a good topic for an upcoming tribute episode, but when you think of heavy metal and think of the mascots, who comes to mind first? Megadeth's Vic? Motörhead's Snaggletooth?

While those guys are totally cool, for me, it's always about Eddie the 'Ead, Iron Maiden's infamous ambassador and metal icon.

I came across this picture made up by artist Stan W. Decker who apparently had his own idea of who should be representing the true face of London for all of its Olympic pageantry:

- Genghis is jonesin' for some live Maiden action (just about two more weeks)...
