Bruce Dickinson opens up on battle with cancer

While fighting cancer, the Iron Maiden singer says he felt like his "own science project".

In this picture, he looks sad
Bruce Dickinson recently spoke to Metal Hammer Magazine about his battle with cancer. In February, when he was originally diagnosed with a cancerous growth on his tongue, he later said that he had two growths removed from his neck. In May, he was, thankfully, declared cancer free.

He said to Metal Hammer "You end up with the metabolism of a hummingbird during this treatment because you're being cooked from the inside out. But your body's also trying to heal itself rapidly, and it goes into overdrive. I think that’s one reason why you lose weight. It’s simply because your system is banging away and then eventually it all dropped back down to normal. It’s fascinating. Basically, I am my own science project"

The full interview will be in issue 274 of Metal Hammer, which comes out tomorrow. Since Iron Maiden is gracing the cover, there will be extensive interviews with each member of the band. And just last week, they released a video for the song "Speed of Light", a track from their yet to be released album The Book of Souls, due out Sept. 4
