brucedickinson400 Iron Maiden have released the following statement via their official website:

“Just before Christmas, Maiden vocalist Bruce Dickinson visited his doctor for a routine check-up. This led to tests and biopsies which revealed a small cancerous tumour at the back of his tongue. A seven week course of chemotherapy and radiology treatment was completed yesterday. As the tumour was caught in the early stages, the prognosis thankfully is extremely good. Bruce’s medical team fully expect him to make a complete recovery with the all clear envisaged by late May. It will then take a further few months for Bruce to get back to full fitness. In the meantime we would ask for your patience, understanding and respect for Bruce and his family’s privacy until we update everyone by the end of May. Bruce is doing very well considering the circumstances and the whole team are very positive.”

    Thank you Dana for letting us all know about Bruce. I had no idea and a chill ran through me when I read the headline to this story. Glad to see it seems they’ve caught it early and the prog seems positive at this point. At the risk of sounding a little heavy, I think there is a brotherhood that exists among fans of hard rock/heavy metal that is unique in the sense that many of us feel like we’ve grown up with these guys. It runs deep, and sometimes there is less distance between rock star and rock fan than we even realize. Got the same chill when I first heard about Tony Iommi. Fight the Good Fight Bruce, we’re with you!
