Bruce Dickinson Quote

Bruce Dickinson

"Best two rock voices I've heard in a last few years both have been from grunge bands: it's Eddie Vedder and the other one is Chris Cornell from Soundgarden."

Bruce Dickinson

FACT YOU want to know

His full name is Paul Bruce Dickinson. He originally went by Bruce Bruce (named after a Monty Python sketch).

He originally planned to become a drummer, quipping: "I want to be Ian Pace's left foot." He once stole congas from his school to practice. As soon as he learned of his singing abilities (about 1976), he joined the band Styx, who were named after the river of Hell according to Greek mythology (This was not the same Styx that was popular in America).

Along with Dee Snider, he joined Jon Bon Jovi on stage when he headlined at Donnington Park. He was wearing Union Jack shorts and didn't know the lyrics to the song Jon was performing. Subsequently, he walked around the stage singing while reading of a lyrics sheet.

He was listening to the Beatles at age five.
