Bruce Dickinson says Iron Maiden never lost the ability to be fierce

Bruce Dickinson talked with Kerrang about how Iron Maiden maintained their passion and attitude over the years.


Read what he said:

“From 1981, when we’d whack on a pair of spandex, some boxing boots and a red t-shirt and that was it – you know, and we had the road crew with plastic devilish pitchforks and basically pantomime costumes – from that period to now where we’ve got all the sophisticated bits and everybody’s on in-ear monitors and things like that… I don’t think we’ve ever lost the childlike delight in doing something a bit daft.

Bruce Dickinson

“And I also don’t think we’ve ever lost the ability to be fierce. If somebody jumped on stage and started a punch-up, it would be a race to see if it was me or Steve who would get there and chin him first.

“That’s never gone out of the mix. Obviously there’s layers of sophistication on it now because we’re doing all this prog stuff and everything else like that, but underneath it we’re still little Jack Russell terriers.”

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
