How could today go by without recognizing a serious metal birthday to the Air Raid Siren himself. Bruce Dickinson is 50 today. I can hardly believe it, he certainly doesn't look 50.
I had (still do) a hot and heavy infatuation with ol' Bruce throughout the 80's. Forget the skinny, pale punk rock dudes (I'll retract that statement if anyone mentions Joey Ramone) I wanted a hairy-chested-and-not-afraid-to-bare-it, football playing, fencing, tight leather and stud wearing MAN who sings like no one else.
Seriously, Bruce's voice is incomparable and the music that Iron Maiden creates is a true gift to metal.
Happy Birthday, Bruce.
