Iron Maiden Lead Singer to Fly Band on Next Tour

I’ve written before about how Bruce Dickenson, the lead singer for Iron Maiden, is a licensed commercial pilot, but I thought this was worth mentioning:  Captain Dickenson will be flying the band’s chartered 757 for the next tour.  I’m going to guess this is the first time a band member has piloted a commercial aircraft for the band’s own tour, but I wouldn’t be surprised if Hannah Montana did the same thing (huh?)


  1. Who will be performing Dickenson’s rock star duties (drugs, alcohol, general debauchery), while he remains sober and rested to fly?

  2. How does he put his pants on?

  3. There’s a ‘Flight of the Icarus’ joke in here somewhere. I just can’t figure it out.

  4. He puts his pants on one leg at a time, but when he’s done, he makes gold records.
