The legendary Iron Maiden vocalist Bruce Dickinson explained during his spoken word appeareance at Malmö, Sweden (Transcribed by Blabbermouth), how he keeps his voice in shape. His first album with Iron Maiden was the classic “Number of The Beast” and he helped to take the band to a whole new level of success releasing many other best-selling records.
“Well, it’s not that I take care of it — I kind of do. But I just try not to abuse it, if that makes sense. ‘Cause the voice will kind of take care of itself, as long as you don’t abuse it. So, yeah, common-sense things: drink plenty of water, don’t smoke loads and loads of cigarettes or gargle with razor blades before a show, and anything else like that.”
“And preferably don’t go out to a football match the night before a gig and [yell at the players and the referee], ’cause afterwards [you will have no voice left]. So, obvious things like that. Warm up a little bit and everything else. Oh, and the other thing is, learn how to sing. It helps,” Bruce Dickinson said.
The musician continues on the road with Iron Maiden in 2023 and they will perform next May, June, July and August in Europe.
