Dave Murray

Dave Murray

Real/full name:
David Michael Murray
67 (born Dec 23rd, 1956)
Place of birth:
United Kingdom (Edmonton, London, England)


One of the earliest members of Iron Maiden. Along with Steve Harris, Dave has appeared on all of the band's releases.

Was school friends with Adrian Smith, and suggested him as a replacement for Dennis Stratton in Iron Maiden.

Currently resides in Maui, Hawaii.


Dave plays mostly Fender Stratocaster guitars, but has used Gibson, Jackson, Ibanez, ESP, and Dean as well.

Played on The Young Ones, a 7" single from 1977 of the English Punk/New wave band The Secret formed in the mid-70's, but was not credited because he left the band before the release; also his pseudonym in that band was "Reggie Mental".
