Pioneers of Britain's nascent rock and metal scene back in the late 1970s, Iron Maiden smashed its way to the top, thanks in no small part to the high-octane performances, operatic singing style and stage presence of its second but twice-longest-serving lead singer, Bruce Dickinson. As Iron Maiden's front man - first from 1981 to 1993, and then from 1999 to the present - Dickinson has been, and remains, a man of legend.

As a life long Maiden fan I had to give this a listen. Brilliantly read by Bruce, honest, insightful, full of rock n roll anecdotes and at times sad, emotional and thought provoking. Highly recommended!
