Dickinson and Harris almost came to blows


“So I’ve got my monitors down there and I’m singing away, and suddenly this maniac comes up and goes (imitates Harris’ move putting his foot on the monitor). Fuck off!

“And then the roadies comes and they move my monitors off to the side. I’m, like, ‘Cheeky fuckers’. So I fucking move them back again. And this carried on for a while.

In the end, what I did was I get and extra-long microphone stand… I had a microphone stand that was like a tank trap for bass players.

“And he’d jostle me – I’ve still got lumps out of my front teeth, and chips and cracks, of all the times he bashed my fucking mic into my teeth.

“So we nearly came to blows. But we came to an accommodation in the end. I sing in the middle of the stage, we just make the stage twice as big.”

If you watch the video below at the 10th minute onwards you will have the chance to hear Bruce telling the story… priceless!
