Iron Maiden's New Album Includes Song Inspired by Robin Williams

(hennemusic) Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson says the band have a song on their forthcoming album, "The Book Of Souls", that was inspired by the late Robin Williams.

"My favorite song is one I didn't write," Dickinson tells Corriere Della Sera. "It's 'Tears of a Clown,' which talks about Robin Williams. I ask myself how could he be so depressed when he always seemed to be so happy."

Williams committed suicide at his California home on August 11, 2014 after a long history of depression and health problems. Co-written by guitarist Adrian Smith and bassist Steve Harris, "Tears Of A Clown" will appear on Iron Maiden's first-ever double studio album. Read more here.
