Steve Harris: Legendary Architect

From Blabbermouth: "...singer and daughter of legendary architect and bassist of IRON MAIDEN, Steve Harris..."

"Legendary architect," you say? From Wikipedia: "He used to work as an architectural draftsman in the East End of London but gave up his job upon forming Iron Maiden." Assuming that's anywhere close to correct, that would mean he gave up his architecture job - which, from what I've read, is a bit like being an architect-lite - over thirty years ago. Even if he did get the chance to design a building or two, I highly doubt they made him any more legendary as an architect than Bruce Dickinson's fencing lessons made him legendary as a sword fighter. I know that writing up promos for Lauren Harris doesn't give you much to work with, but the hyperbole might be a bit much, you know?
