Bruce Dickinson

Everyone knows him as "The Air Raid Siren", the lead singer of legendary British metal band Iron Maiden
Birth name: Paul Bruce Dickinson
DOB: 8/7/1958
Where: Worksop, Nottinghamshire, England
Height: 5'6''
Nicknames: The Air Raid Siren

-His high pitched, almost operatic singing voice which earned him the nickname "The Air Raid Siren"
-Song specific stunts, such as wearing a 19th century British Army jacket and holding a Union Jack when singing "The Trooper"
-Saying "Scream to Me" during concerts
-Lead singer of Iron Maiden since 1982
-He joined Iron Maiden in 1981 after their original singer Paul DiAnno was fired
-One of his biggest hobbies is fencing
-One year when Bon Jovi headlined at Donnington Park, Bruce, Dee Snider and Paul Stanley sung with Bon Jovi on stage during the last song of the night. Bruce, wearing shorts with a pattern of the Union Jack (British flag for those who may not know), didn't know the words to the song being played, so he ran around with the lyrics on a piece of paper, reading them
-Has three children with his wife Paddy Bowden: Griffin Dickinson, Austin Dickinson, Kia Michelle Dickinson
-He was promoted to Captain for UK-based airline Astraeus Airlines
Him in a suit? That's something I never thought I would see :D But cool none the less
-Is a fully licensed pilot. He often flies the Iron Maiden jet, dubbed Ed Force One
How awesome is this? A metal band as legendary as Iron Maiden whose lead singer is also a pilot? Awesome!!!!
