In a recent unscripted question-and-answer session with fans on February 8 at Sala Radio in Bucharest, Romania, Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson made a huge quitting announcement.

When a fan asked that what will happen to Iron Maiden after the band members retire, Dickinson explained that this will never happen and they going to never retire.

Here’s what Bruce Dickinson stated:

“I like that. There’s always hope. ‘After the current members retire,’ there’ll be a whole load of Iron members. We won’t even have to fucking holograms. You know what I mean?

You can actually have real Iron Maiden members that kind of look like us but are not us. That’s good. I like that. It’s not a bad idea.”

He continued:

“Then we can just sit back and [collect] royalties and do no work. Good idea! It’ll never happen because we’re never going to fucking retire.”
