(hennemusic) A spokesperson for Iron Maiden has issued a statement denying claims by a blogger that singer Bruce Dickinson's company, Cardiff Aviation, is involved in manufacturing drones for the U.S. military.
In a piece entitled "Bruce Dickinson: Rock'n'Roll Warmonger," Harry Patersen of the blog Dorset Eye claims the singer's company has accepted a contract from the U.S. military "to manufacture 'lighter-than-air' drones. The contract is believed to be worth anything up to $500,000,000, according to Conference Speakers International."
A spokesperson for Iron Maiden responded to the story in a written statement to NME, calling the article "spurious", adding, "This is a totally inaccurate and malicious piece of writing that seems to have stemmed from an unfortunate mistake in terminology on a South African website that the writer of said blog has since used as a starting point and catalyst to go off on a flight of sheer fantasy." more on this story
