"We want information. Information. In-for-ma-tion."
"Who are you?"
"The new Number Two."
"Who is Number One?"
"You are Number Six."
"I am not a number, I am a free man!"
Burned into cerebral cortex of metalheads everywhere over the last two decades, the intro to Iron Maiden's "The Prisoner" was lifted from the UK's cult-classic TV series of the same name. Reportedly, when Maiden manager Rod Smallwood called star Patrick McGoohan to ask permission to use the sample, McGoohan asked, "What was the band's name again?"
"Iron Maiden, you say? Do it."
Apparently, a revised version of The Prisoner is in the works, and the people at Caterham are waiting on word as to whether Number Six will again drive a Seven, as McGoohan did in the original. No word on whether Maiden's classic track will serve as the theme song, either.
The prisoner returns with a Caterham 7? [Motortorque]
