British band Iron Maiden are proving that heavy metal has still got worldwide selling power - even if they struggle to get their songs played on the radio in the UK.

In India, where they have just kicked off their latest world tour, the band has been mobbed by young rock fans, eager to see the band play live.

"People love us here and it's brilliant," says band founder and bass player, Steve Harris.

"A guy from the record company here told me once: 'Come to India - you've got loads of fans here' and at that time we weren't aware of it. But last year we played Bangalore and it was just fantastic and now we're back again."
