Bruce Dickinson’s Biography
His beginnings in music go back to his time in small local bands like Paradox, which he would later rename himself as Styx in 1976 (not to be confused with the famous American band of the same name); Speed, from 1977 to 1978 and, after its dissolution, in the Shots group until the summer of 1979.
After passing through these groups he was a singer of Samson, at the beginning of the 80s, where he was known by the name of Bruce Bruce, due to a sketch of the English comedy group Monty Python (when he joined Iron Maiden the manager of these made him use his original name). He entered as the lead vocalist of Iron Maiden to replace Paul Di’Anno in 1981 and debuted on the band’s third album, The Number of the Beast, in 1982. He immediately achieved worldwide fame, both positive -for his vocal talent- as a negative – associated with the accusations of Satanism against the band -.
In 1993, after an excellent decade and seven studio albums with Iron Maiden, he decided to leave the band to start a solo career, being replaced by Blaze Bayley. In this race he experimented with a great variety of sub-genres of Rock and Heavy Metal, besides developing in other areas outside of music. He met with the band in 1999, and since then works only in the band, releasing only one solo album, Tyranny of Souls, in 2005.
Apart from music, Dickinson has worked in various fields. He studied History at the Queen Mary and Westfield College of the University of London, and was an active member of the British Conservative Party. Practice fencing with a high level, reaching to reach the seventh position in the classification of the discipline in Britain, also founding a sports equipment company called “Duellist” (Duelists in Castilian, reference to the title of an album song Powerslave of Iron Maiden). He is also pilot of airplanes, with the rank of commander, for the missing aviation company Astraeus. He is the owner of an aircraft maintenance company. In 2010 Bruce took over as marketing director of the airline company Astraeus.
He presented a program called ‘Rock Show’ on a British BBC radio station that specializes in alternative rock, and was also in charge of the Monsters of Rock program on another radio station on the same radio. He was also the protagonist of the documentary ‘Flying Heavy Metal’ of the Discovery Channel, in which he combines his two great hobbies: airplanes and metal.
Dickinson is also a writer and has released several books, especially in the novel genre. Likewise, he also wrote the screenplay for the film Chemical Wedding, based on Aleister Crowley, the legendary mystic, magician and English occultist of the 20th century, founder of the neo-pagan religion Thelema. Dickinson is also a part of the film’s soundtrack.
Given the wide interest and experience in different areas of knowledge, Dickinson is considered a polymath, being qualified as such by the British magazine Intelligent Life (Intelligent Life in Castilian, today called 1843) in an edition of the year 2009.
It began with the recording of “Bring Your Daughter to the Slaughter”, which appeared on the soundtrack of Nightmare on Elm Street 5, and later on the second album of the compilation The Best of Bruce Dickinson. It was a different version of the one that would appear later on the Iron Maiden album No Prayer for the Dying. The original version of this song would put in his hands a contract to make a complete album. Bruce joined guitarist Janick Gers (who would later enter Iron Maiden) to compose Tattooed Millionaire in two weeks: a record quite far from the ‘heavy’ Iron Maiden sound but nevertheless with a well-defined own style. Perhaps some of the songs were composed by the same Bruce for the album Somewhere in Time, but that Steve Harris did not accept to include them in the album, and hence there is no song composed by him published on that album.
Before releasing his second album, Balls to Picasso (1993), Bruce left Maiden and tried to get help from Myke Gray and Keith Olsen below. Only a few songs in the form of B-Sides (Caras B) and only one No Way Out came out of this stage … Continued appeared in the aforementioned compilation. Bruce was not happy with most of the material, so he started working with Tribe of Gypsies guitarist Roy Z. This resulted in the removal of all songs from Keith’s album, except Tears of the Dragon. Then he recorded along with the whole band of Roy Z the new album that combines strongly structured songs letting glimpse Roy’s guitar.
When Tribe of Gypsies began their tour and recorded under their own brand, Bruce was left in charge of finding another band. His new partner in the composition would be Alex Dickson and between them they created the album Skunkworks. The idea was for the band to be called like that, but the producers insisted that Bruce’s name be on the cover; Bruce recalled David Bowie’s failed attempt with Tin Machine and how that did not work for him either, so he accepted. The album can be considered as grunge but it is not an exact definition, although the short duration of the songs and solos can be reminiscent of this style.
Skunkworks soon disappeared after finishing the tour, and after a period of inactivity Bruce cooperated again with Roy Z to record Accident of Birth. Adrian Smith, who at the time was also out of Iron Maiden, played the guitar for the album and the subsequent tour. The album, which was the return to heavy metal for Bruce, was a great success since its release that gave rise to a year later to release another album, The Chemical Wedding. This conceptual album based on the writings of William Blake also became a great success and the album presentation tour was used to publish a live solo: Scream for Me Brazil. Also a compilation The Best of Bruce Dickinson was published, that includes two new songs with Roy Z and a limited edition of a second disc with peculiarities. In his last studio album, Tyranny of Souls, released in 2005, he continues the collaboration with Roy Z, which gave him such good results throughout his solo career.
Bruce Dickinson expresses his curiosity and interest in the occultist Aleister Crowley, in fact he has composed various themes towards his person: Man of Sorrows (with a Spanish version), Moonchild, Revelations, The Alchemist and The Chemical Wedding, the latter with the same name as the movie he wrote about Crowley.
Early in 2015, Dickinson was diagnosed with early-stage tongue cancer. After several weeks of treatment, and thanks to the timely detection, he is fully recovered.Dickinson attributes the cancer to oral sex, due to the Human Papillomavirus.
