About Bruce Dickinson
Dickinson's solo work retains all the "Run to the Hills" velocity and "Number of the Beast" jaw-trap chomp of Iron Maiden. His voice has held up remarkably well, retaining most of its range and power. Weighed against one another on a scale, Dickinson's solo recordings far outweigh Maiden's post-Dickinson work in quality and depth. Though he wasn't the band's first singer, it would have been better for everyone concerned if he'd been the last.
