    1. Frank Herbert
    2. ‘To Tame a Land’ is the closing track on Iron Maiden’s fourth studio album, Piece of Mind

    Connect: The song ‘To Tame a Land’ was inspired by the classic science fiction novel Dune by Frank Herbert.

  3. 1) Frank herbert
    2) the song “to tame a land” by Iron maiden

    Frank herbert’s book DUNE inspired the song to tame a land. the song was originally to be called Dune

  4. Biki

    1 Frank Herbert author of Dune
    2 “To tame a land” by iron maiden, inspired by Dune

  5. duriel

    1. Frank Herbert (Author of the “Dune” books)
    2. Iron Maiden song: “To tame a land”

    The song by Maiden is inspired by Herbert’s Dune. Initially, they wanted to name it “Dune”, but Herbert refused as he “didnt like rock bands”.

    Anyway, connect is Dune.

    hmmm, and the clue may refer to “Muad’Dib”, the Kangaroo mouse from the Dune world.

    The audio is an Iron Maiden song called ‘To Tame A Land’, which is a tribute to the science fiction work Dune by Frank Herbert (1920-1986), who is the pictured gentleman.

    It was originally meant to be called Dune, but Herbert didn’t allow it.
