Team Sonisphere member and KiliLive promoter Alan Day (@alandayrocks) tweeted: “well @frankturner got more @IronMaiden questions correct than I would have done!”

The folk/punk singer finished with a total of 20 points after the general knowledge round.

That was good enough to beat punk-poet John Cooper Clarke, Ben Faulks and Roy Hudd to the Mastermind trophy.
