IRON MAIDEN frontman Bruce Dickinson recently spoke with MaidenRevelations.com. An excerpt from the interview is available below:
The Maiden frontman highlights the importance of taking care of your voice when something is wrong with it. He estimates that he has only cancelled about 25 shows in over 35 years as a performer, but those cancellations have been important.
Dickinson: “That could be the difference between me keeping my voice or not keeping my voice. I’ve never taken steroids or these awful jabs they give you. If my voice is so bad that I can’t get it to sing without it, I shouldn’t be singing.”
Dickinson is still keen on developing his ability as a singer, even if his past and current voice work can be admired in the already long line of Iron Maiden concert DVDs available.
Dickinson: “I’ve kind of got my own style now, in a way. So I’m sort of investigating what I can do with my voice. I’m still trying to do the stuff I did when I was 23. But I can do stuff now that I couldn’t do when I was 23. So I’m looking at ways of how can I do some different things with my voice. How can I introduce different tones? As I get older it’s quite nice to have that stuff to be able to do with your voice, it gets fatter and it gets deeper.”
