07Should Bruce Dickinson’s voice ever give out, Iron Maiden has his full blessings to hire a replacement — as long as he gets final say in the matter.

That comes from Dickinson himself, who says, “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.” Iron Maiden recently kicked off its “Legacy Of The Beast” tour in Croatia, marking the band’s first live appearance in 31 months.
