Just two days after the murder of Damageplan's Dimebag Darrel and three others during a concert in Ohio, it appears that another metal musician may have been attacked onstage.
Former Iron Maiden lead vocalist Paul Di'Anno was reportedly attacked by a crazed fan during his appearance Friday at the Heavy Metal Monsters melodic metal festival in Tel Aviv, Israel.
TotalRock.com reports that the fan jumped onstage during Di'Anno's performance and "lashed out" at the singer. Di'Anno reportedly only suffered minor injuries and was able to complete his set.
At press time antiMUSIC was unable to obtain an official confirmation of this incident. The second day of the festival (Dec 11, 2004) is expected to proceed as planned.
Paul Di'Anno was the lead singer of Iron Maiden from 1977 until late 1981 when he was replaced by Bruce Dickinson. Di'Anno appeared on the group's first two major label studio releases 1979's Iron Maiden and 1980's Killers as well as the 1981 live EP Maiden Japan and the group's self released "Soundhouse Tapes".
