Via a recent article with the Daily Star, the Iron Maiden singer shared that, if for some reason he is no longer able to sing, he wants to be replaced in the band.
Per the Daily Star’s “Wired” column, Bruce Dickinson shared the following:
“If tomorrow I don’t feel able to sing more than four songs a night, I’d like the guys to continue and I should be able to choose my replacement. I would stick my head in from time to time and the other singer would do the rest.
“When you look at Keith Richards, who suffers from arthritis, he’s not on top form every night but he’s supported by other guitarists,” he continued. “It’s The Rolling Stones. I don’t think it upsets anyone. In any case, everything I’ve said isn’t going to happen.”
Bruce Dickinson also shared that he is not down for a hologram to take over for him. Regarding the use of a potential hologram, he said, “That’s hell on earth. I really don’t understand the point of it.”
Iron Maiden has had several vocalists throughout its history, but it is probably fair to say that Bruce Dickinson is the most iconic voice associated with the heavy metal band. If someone had to step in and be the new Iron Maiden singer, who would you want it to be?
