IRON MAIDEN FRONTMAN BRUCE DICKINSON TO RELEASE MEMOIR, “WHAT DOES THIS BUTTON DO?,” ON OCTOBER 19TH
This Autumn Harper Collins non fiction are publishing What Does This Button Do?, the hugely anticipated memoir from Iron Maiden frontman and rock legend, Bruce Dickinson.
One of the world’s most storied musicians, Bruce has lived an extraordinary off-stage existence too. A true polymath, Bruce is, or has been, an airline pilot and captain, an aviation entrepreneur, a beer brewer, motivational speaker, film scriptwriter, twice-published novelist, radio presenter, TV actor and a world-class fencer.
Now, for the first time, Bruce tells his story in his own words. In What Does This Button Do?, Bruce (a man who famously never gives interviews about his personal life) shares the most fascinating recollections, including his thirty years with Maiden, the early days, his childhood within the eccentric British school system, going solo, realising his dream of flying jumbo jets and his recent battle with tongue cancer. Bruce Dickinson is so much more than the frontman of one of the biggest bands on the planet. A rock icon, a true renaissance man, Bruce has been, and remains, a man of legend.
Bold, honest, intelligent and very entertaining, What Does This Button Do? is the long-awaited window into the life, heart and mind of one of our most adventurous and multifaceted sons.
What Does This Button Do? will be released on October 19th, but is available for pre-order, here.
I will definitely be getting this book! Bruce seems like a fascinating guy, and this will be an interesting read. Like all of the guys in Iron Maiden, you don’t hear much about their private lives (at least I haven’t). No wild sex/ drug parties, no drunken fights or car wrecks. They just make great music and put on awesome live shows! Bruce is such an awesome vocalist and performer, and yet has the time to learn how to fly a passenger jet and become a world-class fencer! Look forward to this book coming out!
I’d read a book by Bruce but I wish he would have waited. Steve said in 2016 that he could see IM doing one more release and tour and then calling it a day. THEN, when it’s all done, I’d like to read a complete bio.
