Bruce Dickinson says what he thinks about drugs

Iron Maiden’s singer Bruce Dickinson was interviewed by Kaaos TV about his new book “What Does This Button Do?”, and he also talked about his opinion about drugs.


Read what he said:

“There’s not really that much about drugs [in the book], to be honest with you. Yeah, I smoked a bit of dope when I was at university – big deal… And really, I only put that in there just because I wanted to make the point that I really don’t see the point in drugs.

Bruce Dickinson is small

“It didn’t really do anything to a great extent for me. So stopping was pretty easy. Not like I was an addict, it’s not like I have purchased a drug in my life. Actually, I’m the worst guy on planet because I used to smoke everybody else’s dope. That was in there really almost just exclusively to pretty much make that point.

“And as the sex bit – there is a little bit of sex in it. But not to the point where I’m describing how incredible I am in bed. Why would you want to do that? Like people don’t know what it’s like to have sex? Most people have sex, have girlfriends, boyfriends, whatever, make love, do whatever. I can tell you – it’s no different. Everything works just the same.

Bruce Dickinson book of souls

“It’s just something that happens to the entire planet. So what’s different? Why does that have to go in the book? It’s another kind of rockstar narcissist thing, and that’s not this book. I didn’t want this to be a confessional about how big my willy is. It’s so tedious! It’s boring! I think the book should be entertaining, I think it should be a little bit educational, a little bit informative, and funny. And I think it should celebrate life.”

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
