Iron Maiden Frontman Bruce Dickinson's 'Weird' Cover Band Experience
The LA-based Iron Maidens are fronted by Kirsten Rosenberg, aka Bruce Chickinson, and Alice Cooper's guitarist Nita Strauss made her name in the lineup.
Dickinson tells Classic Rock: "I've seen the Iron Maidens in Mexico. We all went. We were watching them and I said to Steve, 'This is a really weird question, but looking at them, would you f*** yourself?' And he went, 'I don't know, but we've all been thinking it.' It was very, very weird."
Maiden released their 16th album The Book Of Souls this year. It won Album Of The Year at last month's Classic Rock Roll Of Honour and Dickinson says creating new music for their live audiences to enjoy is vital if the band are to remain relevant.
He adds: "The only difference between us and and Iron Maiden cover bands is that we do new Iron Maiden albums. Funnily enough, while that's a joke, it's also a good point." Read more here.
