Iron Maiden’s Bruce Dickinson: “I Don’t See Any Reason Why We Should Ever Retire”

During a recent interview with Andreu Buenafuente on “Late Motiv”, Iron Maiden’s Bruce Dickinson was asked about the possibility of retirement. The singer responded with the following:

“As far as I’m concerned anyway, I don’t see any reason why we should ever retire. As an airline captain, I was always told that nobody ever dies on an airplane. Even if the guy’s head is severed from his body, he’s not dead, because…if somebody says, ‘The guy’s head has fallen off,’ you go, ‘Well, is he dead?’ And they say, ‘Well, he’s not dead until somebody legally says he’s dead.’ So, nobody dies until somebody stands up and says, ‘Yup. He’s definitely dead.’ ‘Ha! You’re responsible then. You’ve killed him.’ So, it’s the same with rock and roll bands. We will never die. Even if we are actually dead, we will still never actually die.”

Iron Maiden’s Bruce Dickinson On Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame: “If We’re Ever Inducted, I Will Refuse”

Iron Maiden’s Bruce Dickinson recently made headlines after saying “The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame is an utter, complete load of bollocks” and now, during an interview with The Jerusalem Post, he was asked about those comments. He responded with the following:

“I was so annoyed with that coverage because they took my statement out of context to make it seem like I was upset that we weren’t in the Hall Of Fame. I’m really happy we’re not there and I would never want to be there. If we’re ever inducted, I will refuse — they won’t bloody be having my corpse in there. Rock and roll music does not belong in a mausoleum in Cleveland. It’s a living, breathing thing, and if you put it in a museum, then it’s dead. It’s worse than horrible, it’s vulgar.”


Iron Maiden’s Bruce Dickinson Named “Honorary Citizen Of Sarajevo”

The Sarajevo City Council unanimously voted to make Iron Maiden legend Bruce Dickinson a “honorary citizen of Sarajevo.” The singer was recognized due to his willingness to play in Sarajevo back in 1994 during the Bosnian War as the city was under siege. That concert was later documented for the film “Scream For Me Sarajevo.” According to Blabbermouth, as part of the Council’s decision, they said Dickinson “contributed significantly to the development and affirmation of Sarajevo, as well as to the relations among people based on solidarity, democracy and human rights.”


Iron Maiden’s Bruce Dickinson: “The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Is An Utter, Complete Load Of Bollocks”

Iron Maiden should have been in the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame a long time ago, but the band have never even been nominated. With this in mind, a fan at the Melbourne, Australia stop of Bruce Dickinson’s speaking tour asked the frontman if he thinks the band should be included. He responded with the following:

“Absolutely! I actually think the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame is an utter, complete load of bollocks to be honest with you. It’s run by a bunch of sanctimonious bloody Americans who wouldn’t know rock’n’roll if it hit them in the face. They need to stop taking Prozac and start drinking fucking beer!”
