Iron Maiden’s Bruce Dickinson: I am still a 17-year-old at heart

Iron Maiden lead vocalist, Bruce Dickinson, has stressed that he is still a 17-year-old even though he will be celebrating his 54th birthday on August 7 later this year.

In a recent interview, the English musician was asked that whether the band needed to change its genre, he replied:

“Mature our image? Why? Inside this 53-year-old exterior is a 17-year-old. Actually, probably mental age, probably slightly younger. But that’s the core of why you do this thing. When you’re a kid and you experience something that makes you feel, ‘Wow, walking
on air’.

“The first song you write, the first experiences, you have to ring fence those and guard them against what I can describe as the cynicism of the world, because the world eats into people and destroys those hopes and those dreams and things like that.

“And it’s those things that people call childish, those are the things, actually, that motivate us and that keeps our creativity precious; that’s what’s inside people, and they lose it at their peril. I’ve seen people that have lost it, and it’s really sad…,”
Dickinson stated.

The English band has thus far released 11 studio album with ‘The Final Frontier’ being the latest that hit the stores in 2010.
