The Wizard played on WDR 2

Recently German radio station WDR 2 had a big competition in which listeners could vote for the 200 best bands of all times. Blind Guardian came 121st ranking and WDR 2 chose a song very representative for the band... "Satisfaction" for the Rolling Stones, "Whish You Were Here" for Pink Floyd and "Highway To Hell" for AC/DC.

For Blind Guardian it's different, the radio hasn't selected a recent song but rather something in the mid-90s, which isn't bad because the group has released very good albums during this period (Imaginations From The Other Side and Nightfall In Middle-Earth for example, which are in the 100 Greatest Metal Albums Of All Time according to Metal Hammer) but what is more surprising is that they chose a bonus track from The Forgotten Tales, so if you listen WDR 2 and somebody announces Blind Guardian, don't be surprised if you hear their cover of Uriah Heep "The Wizard".
