On Monday Iron Maiden Had Enough Pie Following Stage Accident was a top story. Here is the recap: (Classic Rock) Iron Maiden abandoned their traditional pie attacks after frontman Bruce Dickinson suffered a stage fall as a result, says drummer Nicko McBrain.
The band are gearing up for a the 2013 leg of their Maiden England world tour, and their first full-power show will be on McBrain's birthday, June 5, in France.
In the past he'd have expected to be pelted with shaving-cream pies towards the end of the show – but not after an episode during a multi-night stay in New York.
He tells Vintage Rock: "There was a time when it was Bruce's birthday and we were playing in the Hammerstein Ballroom a number of years ago. We gave him a pieing, shaving cream and whatnot.
"It wasn't cleaned up correctly – so the next night he slipped. He fell off the top of the riser into my drum set and he really hurt himself. So we went, 'That's enough of that.'" - more on this story
