About this product
- DescriptionBruce Dickinson is the mighty voice behind legendary heavy metal behemoths Iron Maiden, and many more things besides. A world-class fencer, veteran pilot and one of the most acclaimed rock vocalists of all time, there is one else like him. Prior to joining Maiden in 1981 for their seminal, multi-million selling Number of the Beast - one of the most influential records in the history of Heavy Metal - Dickinson enjoyed stardom with fellow New Wave Of British Heavy Metal artists Samson, while his post-Maiden solo career also brought much critical success. Not content to merely continue shaping the face of metal music, Dickinson is a true renaissance man: a world-class member of the British Fencing team; a best-selling fiction author; a keen military historian; a TV presenter; and also a first officer for commercial airline Astreus. Yet in 2015, the voice, and the life, of Iron Maiden's singer were placed in the cruellest jeopardy as he was diagsed with a golf-ball sized cancerous tumour on his tongue.But after making a full recovery, Iron Maiden have released an acclaimed sixteenth album, The Book of Souls, anunced a world tour and stand astride the pantheon of metal greats, and Bruce stands astride the pantheon of metal greats once more. This first biography of Bruce Dickinson and tells his story through exclusive interviews with those who kw him best: from his formative days straddling the upsurge of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal, through his solo years and right up to his present day legendary status as Iron Maiden's frontman.
