Member of the holy trinity that are the axemen of the great Iron Maiden. Smith's style greatly differs from his fellow counterparts, (Murray, Gers) for his legato playing is quick yet smoother and arranged to correlate to the given chord structure. His fast passages are closely complementary to his melodic solos which often are more influenced by blues scales.

With all technicalities aside, he is a bloody amazing guitarist and has had an indescribable impact on heavy metal culture.
A small sample of Adrian Smith's great solo/riff material include: Aces High, Flight of Icarus, Hallowed Be Thy Name, Wasted Years, Stranger in a Strange Land, Brighter Than a Thousand Suns

A celebrity free pass is an agreement between you and your significant other that if you meet said celebrity and there is an opportunity to sleep with them, your partner cannot get mad at you for doing so because you had agreed before hand that this person was your celebrity free pass. It is ideal if both of you in the relationship choose a celebrity free pass so that the playing field is even.

Guitarist of Iron Maiden from 1981-1990, 1999-current. His rhythmic picking style, heavy metal-type tone, and blazing vibratos and solos have established him as one of classic metal's gods on the guitar. He also has a skill for writing songs, which is evident in "The Evil That Men Do," "2 Minutes to Midnight," and "Wasted Years."
Adrian Smith's solo in "Stranger in a Strange Land" suits the song incredibly well.
