Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson spoke in an interview with “Rock Talk With Mitch Lafon” and explained his thoughts about former Iron Maiden singer, Blaze Bayley. He said:
“Well, you know, life’s too short to go around chucking your ego around like that — it’s childish, it’s stupid.
And, actually, some of those songs kind of worked [with my voice], some of them didn’t, but you know what? They were all songs which a lot of Iron Maiden fans bought, and some of them, in particular ‘The Clansman’and ‘Sign Of The Cross’, I think we really nailed those songs and I thought it was great material.
Blaze’s voice, obviously, was quite different than mine — it was a slightly lower register — and, actually, I wasn’t complaining, ’cause I could use this kind of lower baritone tone and get quite kind of robust on it all. And I really enjoyed singing those songs.”
