Bruce Dickinson Quits Iron Maiden

Heavy metal fans far and wide will be saddened to hear that Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson has decided to once again leave Iron Maiden. The singer claims that he has become tired of performing so much and needs to focus on other projects. A statement from Dickinson reads as follows:

"Hello everyone, I'm sorry to confirm this but yes I have left Iron Maiden. There are a fair few reasons for my decision and I hope after hearing a few you'll support my decision. As many fans who follow the music industry know, life on the road isn't all it's cracked up to be and I'm bloody knackered to be quite honest with you! In my time with Iron Maiden I've got to visit the whole world and play heavy metal, living the dream as it were and I wouldn't trade those memories for anything, but it's an exhausting process. I also feel that at my age, I may be getting a little old to be running around the stage and dressing up. It's alot of fun but I don't want people to find it embarassing or to be considered a joke by the heavy metal community which I know takes things very seriously.

"However, retirement is not something I have planned for quite some time! I will be flying a little more now and I'm also opening a fencing school in Britain, though it could well prove to be quite expensive I'm afraid! I've also got a couple of books planned which I hope will please you all. Iffy Boatrace will be returning for a third adventure in "Iffy Boatrace: Two Pints Of Larger And A Packet Of Problems" which will hit book shelves late next year. Before that however, I'll be writing a detailed autobiography chronicling everything from my days at university, my time in Samson and of course, the time I spent in Iron Maiden. There's a few titles I'm considering right now like, "The Trooper" and "Rime Of The Ancient Vocalist" but I'll decide nearer the time of the completion. I'm going no-holds barred on this one so expect some frankly shocking facts to be revealed! I'm also kicking around the idea of doing another solo album. Myself and Roy Z have a few unreleased songs that we recorded back in 2007 so we may go back to those and see how we do. If I do release another album then I want to make sure it really is the best one I've ever done. So it may take some time.

"So that about wraps it up from me. I hope you'll look forward to my new projects as much as I do."

This news comes hot on the heels of Iron Maiden guitarist Adrian Smith denying that the bands days are numbered. Bass player and founder Steve Harris has previously hinted that the band will do only one more album and he has announced that Dickinson leaving does not effect plans for another album. "I can't say I'm not disapointed," Harris stated; "but with every negative there's a positive and we'll be looking to do something special for the fifteenth album.

"Since Bruce is revealing all his plans I'll let you in on a project I've wanted to do for some time, but until now felt we were unable to do. Basically, the next album will be a two disc set with the second being a "Iron Maiden and Friends" collection. We'll be re-recording many of our classic songs with some of the biggest singers in heavy metal taking over the vocal spot. Being the all 'round great bloke that he is, Rob Halford has already agreed to do a song for the album and is very excited about it. We're also in talks with Klause Meine of Scorpions, Biff Byford from Saxon and even Ozzy Osbourne! We're getting alot of great responses about the project from these legends and can't wait to record these. Chances are, the singer we feel we click with the most will record the vocals for the new album too. Stay tuned for updates and news because this is one of the most important chapters in the history of Maiden!"

The Di'anno era just never really did it for me, but I will say the rhythm section during his era seemed somehow stronger. I refuse to debate Halford and Priest vs. D!ckenson and Maiden. It's apples and oranges IMO. However, Maidenfan08 is a douche rocket. On this we can agree. How's the back brother?

Back is doing well thanks, I have one awesome scar lol.

I used to think Bruce was/is the greatest vocalist in metal ever but recently I've noticed that he frequently goes out of tune and his wails get on my nerves. I've always prefered Di'anno because I can relate to him more I suppose. I say Priest is the greatest heavy metal band of all time because to me they embody and are the definition of heavy metal. As good as Maiden are, I don't think they're much better than Saxon and it seems to me they got real lucky with their success.

His wails can be annoying at times i'll agree, and I will also agree that they (Maiden) were right time at the right place. Still I don't think he was overrated. I also love the Saxon material so making that comparison is a rough one for me. Still, I don't care much for the more recent Maiden efforts. Their first 5 albums were the best.

I love Saxon too, what I was saying was Saxon have continually put out great heavy metal and for some reason haven't got the recognition Maiden have. It's got to the point now where Maiden can release any old bollocks and fans will go, "Ah it's a good album. Not great but I'm too busy hating Metallica to care about hating another legendary metal band." He's out of tune in a number of places on the Beast On the Road show. I'm not denying he's a great singer or frontman, but he's not worth the hype. That's my opinion anyways. Biff Byford is more deserving of the recognition Bruce has got I believe, but he's a humble enough bloke to not complain about it.

It's all a bullsh*t session. Talk amongst yourselves on the cell phone if that's what you are so inclined to do. Blabbermouth doesn't pull dumb pranks like Phil Anselmo dying. How is that funny?

Move on, and lastly, get over yourself.

Bmg -- They were just jokes, lighten up (I wonder how many times I've had to point that out in the last week?!). If you have so many problems with this site, why are you still here? It's obvious that you have no fans here and that no one really wants you here. So just leave and go back to Blabbermouth with all the other wankers on that god-awful site. Just go and stop being such a killjoy troll.

*Get over yourself* No, can't do that, i'm just better than you and i love it. Just about every thread on here doesn't pertain to the topic. Lastly, for Blindgreed, which is obviously your strongest quality, you have a personal problem with Blabbermouth. The news is what matters on that site, not the bullsh*t that goes on behind it. Here, it's the mudslinging that is entertaining.

Who said anything about lowering oneself to Blabbermouth, except you Blindgreed? Again, it's a personal issue. It's about the music and if it has to do with the idea that Blabbermouth doesn't promote underground bands, that's a load of crap because if one did keep up with the site, you could find much news regarding underground bands. I'm sure there are politcs there but I don't care about that as politics are EVERYWHERE INCLUDING HERE. Considering alot of you, not all, are always talking about NON-METAL topics, it seems to refect that most of you don't know doo-doo about alot of the bands.

Dumba$$ for comment #79, Phil did die, so he claims, from an apparent drug overdose (much longer ago before this stupid joke was contrived!!) and luckily had been revived. Now, what will next year's prank be? Dimebag Darell seen shopping at Walmart? Bravo!!

Ur dur BMG, I heard that too, but you can bet that it wasn't OD'ing on brown sugar as the April Fools article claimed. A lot of Fools jokes are for shock factor. Deal with it.

Blabbermouth is full of teeny bopping retards straight from roadrunner records. This site is all about the music as well, but we have formed a fairly well knit community as well, and have debates from time to time, whcih often takes it off topic. I've learned about several very nice bands just from talking to people here, or noting what others say.

Blabbermouth is visually lacking compared to this site and the search engine is poor as well. MU is run by DB himself as a fun thing for him to do. He probably makes a bit of money from the ads, but not too much I would imagine.

And the "I'm better than you and love it" comment is fairly confusing. It did not pertain to anything discussed beforehand. And it definitely doesn't change the fact that nothing you have said so far is anything other than simple trolling.

Irish: Don't forget adolescent dribble.

BMG: Well at least you are willing to admit that you have a problem (can't get over yourself). Some say ignorance is bliss, maye that's why you love the Bmouth. Enjoy it. I for one will never give the ignorant trolls on that site another second of my time. Furthermore, this particular thread has stayed on topic other than your Bmouth plugs. The D!ckenson joke was hilarious and I applaud Oz for posting it. Cheers BMG.

Oy of vey! I hate when friend's fight. Kinda drives me nuts. Especially when they are good friend's of mine fighting. This is waht I told BMG on myspace lastnight: Sis, it is a joke. That was the fun of it. NEVER take anything on MU with seriousness on April 1st. I do gotta admit that you have been sort of a troll on MU if you really think about it. I have not seen you comment on a bands thread just to have a friendly convo, really save for the one in the HTN thread. If I am wrong, please by all means correct me. All of us regulars know that post's on April 1st are to be taken as joke's, and nothing more. Some are even a bit of wishful thinking (like Phil Assmo dieing). Love ya dearly sis, but do try to relax a bit. It's not like Diamond just up, and posted that article on a day that wasn't April Fool's, or meant any harm by it.

I kinda agree with BMG, people DO post random off-topic crap on this site a bit too much - BUT - on an April Fool's "just for fun" thread, you'd have to be more anal than a gay orgy to care.
