It's well known in certain circles that Bruce Dickinson is quite possibly the biggest asshole in the history of music. That said, that behavior is somewhat more tolerable from a broken down 52 year old man who has to live in a van most of the year than someone who travels by private jet and works a few months a year.

I can't say from my experience whether Bruce is an ass or not, because I never met him, but Paul is definitely not. Whatever he says on stage is not meant to be taken seriously anyway. He just jokes around.

I happen to think Bruce Dickinson is simply one of the most opinionated and blunt people in the music industry. He's made it and can do whatever he wants to and say whatever he wants to say. He doesn't need to take any shit from anyone. I honestly LOVE that he's completely unafraid to rant. I think more people need that amount of balls.

...this is entirely based on interviews and what I've seen of them live. I've never met the guy. Maybe he's a prick. I don't really care.

Good video interview, I usually don't check them out but you did well! Love the site you have put together.

If you ever need a correspondent in Central Florida I would gladly say yes!

This isn't why everyone else in metal thinks he's a dick...

For real. That's what makes him a great frontman.

I have two friends who have met Bruce, and apparently he is genuinely just a normal guy. There is no animosity about him, he talks to you like he would anyone else, jokes with you like he would anyone else and you'd wouldn't know he is Iron Maidens frontman if you met him normally. Apparently same goes for all the Maiden boys, much like Sabbath, they've never forgotten where they came from. I mean with Maiden especially, they all have that working class spirit, none of them likes to sit around and do nothing.
