Bruce Dickinson explains the history behind his nickname “Air-Aid Siren”

In an interview with Eddie Trunk, Iron Maiden’s frontman Bruce Dickinson explained the story behind his nickname Air-Raid Siren.


He explains that before, before the computers and websites, the critics came in another way: by letters.

“A guy came to watch us at the Rainbow Theater as soon as I joined Iron Maiden … and he sent me a letter saying ‘I hate the new singer! It’s like listening to my favorite songs being played by an air-raid siren. ‘ And then Rod (Smallwood, entrepreneur) said ‘Brilliant! A human siren air-raid! ‘”

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
