IRON MAIDEN singer Bruce Dickinson believes that the band should replace him if it gets to the point where he can no longer perform.
Speaking with the Daily Star ‘s “Wired” column, Bruce said: “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 also commented on the possibility of one day performing as ABBA-type holograms, saying: “That’s hell on earth. I really don’t understand the point of it.”
IRON MAIDEN kicked off the 2022 leg of its “Legacy Of The Beast” world tour on May 22 at the Arena Zagreb in Zagreb, Croatia, marking the band’s first live appearance in 31 months.
