As support for the release of his autobiographical book ‘What Does This Button Do?’, Iron Maiden’s vocalist Bruce Dickinson made a special guest appearance on The Project’s TV show to talk about the book’s promotion tour.
During the program he said:
“What I do basically is a one man show. It started as a promotion for the book and the producer said, ‘Let’s rent a little theater and you read a little’ and I thought, ‘Wow, what a stupid thing!’
And i like it! I returned to the Edinburgh Festival and then spent a good time in Scandinavia. Now I’m in Greece and Israel and a bit more of Scandinavia and I ended up getting more shows.”
About the fans of Iron Maiden, he said:
“Unlike some bands, we like our fans. And so, everything we do, we do seriously, but at the same time we do not take ourselves so seriously. It’s a nice balance to have.”
The book turns his unbridled creativity, passion, and anarchic humour to reveal some fascinating stories from his life, including his thirty years with Maiden, his solo career, his childhood within the eccentric British school system, his early bands, fatherhood and family, and his recent battle with cancer.
Bold, honest, intelligent and very funny, his memoir is an up-close look inside the life, heart, and mind of one of the most unique and interesting men in the world; a true icon of rock.
