Bruce Dickinson said he believes music is “far more powerful than any political slogan.”
Speaking to Metal Hammer editor Dom Lawson in the video below, the frontman of Iron Maiden shares his thoughts on the power of music. Believing he’s “dumb” when musicians start preaching to fans about “the obvious,” he believes it’s the emotional power of music that stays with fans for the rest of their lives.
Citing examples of being in school, and remembering the emotions of being hit with a ruler or coveting the girl in the second row, Bruce says that music has the power to “bring people to the state they were in when they heard the song and that is much more powerful than any political slogan or anything.”
I am a Brazilian journalist, a Classic Rock and Heavy Metal lover. Music has always been part of my life, helped me through tough moments and was with me to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After college I did a postgraduate degree in digital communication. This has helped me to make the website better and bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
