Bruce Dickinson Regrets Calling an Iron Maiden Fan a “Greek C*nt”


During the last couple years, Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson‘s had some outbursts throughout reveals that’s led to lots of people on-line having opinions on the matter. From his being mad about weed being smoked throughout his present to his stance on Brexit, he’s been outspoken and at occasions gone off the deal with. But after some self-reflection, it appears he’s taking a step again and calling at the very least one occasion one of many dumbest issues he’s ever accomplished on stage.

Throughout a current interview with Kerrang!, Dickinson pointed to an incident that befell on July 16, 2002 in Athens, Greece. Maiden was enjoying the Olympic Stadium and leaping into “The Variety of the Beast” when a fan lit a flare within the crowd. Inside seconds of the factor getting set off, Dickinson went off, calling him out in entrance of everybody with a litany of… colourful phrases.

“‘Who’s that Greek cunt waving a flare?’ In Greece. There was a level of sympathy from individuals in Greece who stated, ‘He shouldn’t have stated Greek cunt,’ and yeah, possibly not, however he most likely was Greek. And he most likely was a cunt. But it surely actually pissed me off. There I’m, attempting to sing, and there’s all these individuals waving these phosphorous naval misery flares, and no person in the entire place can fucking breathe. I discover it actually, deeply thoughtless. However I shouldn’t have referred to as him a Greek cunt as a result of I wasn’t certain of his nationality. I misplaced my rag and I shouldn’t have accomplished.”

That’s not the primary or solely time he’s ever gone off on somebody for probably affecting his vocal efficiency. He’s accomplished it a pair occasions since, with one other time being when he obtained pissed off that somebody was smoking pot throughout an Iron Maiden present. That led to individuals roasting Dickinson, not that he’s bothered by that in any respect. In reality, it even made Nickelback extra relatable as Chad Kroeger stated he encourages the ganja at his reveals.

However I digress — within the aforementioned interview, he stated he ought to have a least used completely different insults when attacking the man.

Can smoke hamper an individual’s capacity to sing? Completely. Do you gotta be a dick about it on stage? In all probability not. At the least Bruce has realized that calling somebody out is one factor and attacking them through the use of their nationality is one other factor solely.
