Bruce Dickinson Quotes
Bruce Dickinson Quotes
"A few of these interviews have gone slightly awry, because every now and again there has been the odd conflict of interest between interviews because of the Iron Maiden record, and I am a bit long-winded." "A guy called Arthur Brown... was a big influence of mine... and also Ian Anderson from Jethro Tull." "Alice is much a focused rebellion, he's a fantastic cartoon character almost, if you like, and therefore he's still successful today-my kid, 11 years old, loves Alice Cooper." "Best two rock voices I've heard in a last few years both have been from grunge bands: it's Eddie Vedder and the other one is Chris Cornell from Soundgarden." "I am taking a break, but not a huge break because the Maiden record is actually happening right now, and I am recording it as we speak, well not right as we speak, but close." "I do like Marylin Manson, actually. I think, he's very talented and he did make some great music." "I don't even think that you can call Iron Maiden 100% real metal. Iron Maiden is beyond that and always has been. That is one of the things that America has always had a problem with, but right now we might be moving to a point where by America may actually understand what Maiden is all about. We'll see." "I don't like being recognised, I have no interest in being famous at all, I just do what I do. If I could be like Captain Kirk and beam myself up and then beam myself down, I would!" "I dreamt for years about making albums and doing world tours-I'd fulfilled all my ambitions in one year." "I enjoy making solo albums because over the years it's evolved into more of a genuine personal expression of story-telling and day dreams, and I work in a way that has more control." "I find that fencing and training give me more stamina and help me deal with the craziness of being on the road so much." "I fly aeroplanes, go down the pub, go to the gym, read-I like military history, social history, occasionally arty books." "I guess that the salary that they get when they are working with me is, like, it beats working at McDonalds, so it has got some things going for it." "I love performing on the stage, but I don't like being famous-I just don't see the point, it just cheapens everything." "I only ever had one pair of Spandex trousers!" "I shall refract myself, yes, I shall no longer be known as the prism." "I was asked to sign a bunny, a real one! I am not an aficionado of bunnies." "I'll be arriving at the last possible minute and walking on stage raging and pillaging and then disappearing immediately afterwards." "I'm a ham. I was immediately attracted to fencing because it seemed like a romantic, melodramatic form of combat." "I'm not going to do any more solo touring." "I've always enjoyed reading lyrics, trying to do them more than just lyrics, trying to have some more meaning in them. I know a lot of people are just happy to have a kind of broken word lyrics. I just wonder why, there's no reason why they can't at least attempt to do something a bit better." "I've been to the Reading festival twice before-as a punter, though I stayed backstage in the hospitality tent!" "If it all just happens like this for the rest of my life, it's going to be one endless Groundhog Day. I determined that I was not prepared to submit to this regime, so I thought I had to do something about it." "Iron Maiden is an institution, and I'm delighted that I'm involved in it, but there was a time that I wasn't delighted so I quit." "King in Crimson is actually an alchemical term. King Crimson is a metaphor for Devil or Satan, but at the same time it's also a metaphor for one of the statures in the purification of man and the purification of mankind soul towards union with God and with Infinite, which is the philosophical aim of alchemists." "Life on the road can get a little one-dimensional. I didn't want to reach 40 and have to say all I'd done was look out the window of a tour bus and get drunk." "Major labels blow all their money massively and blame it on the band." "That gives me tremendous encouragement and optimism for the human race in general, that people choose to go off and do their own things." "The more guitars we have onstage the better, as I'm concerned." "The mystical poetry of William Blake's artwork also forms the basis for the album cover." "The prolific spurt has passed. I have spurted my prolificness! I have squirted my whatever from the whatever, the acatalectic record of mankind and have decided to repose myself until after the new Iron Maiden record." "There are a lot of bands using self-abuse as a marketing gimmick. Metal music has been ambushed by a fashionable West Coast wasted look-you know, the red bandanna and the heroin needle sticking out of your arm. I think that's disgusting." "There are a lot of stuff on the record that I am thinking is generic but actually it is just as good as everybody else who is putting stuff out at the time." "Well, if it's the audience is a bit lagging we kick them in the nuts until they wake up!" "Well, it's a nice quiet time for Iron Maiden, and I'll be releasing a new solo album next year, so this is a really good time for the managing out my solo career, which is quite well." "Well, yeah, sometimes I get a little too creative." "When I left the band, what the band did is really their own business. And their career - they got on with it, and I got on with my career." "When I write with Maiden, then I write only with the guys in Maiden, we don't do songs from outside people."
