Iron Maiden’s Bruce Dickinson Talks About Concern Cancer Would Change His Voice

In 2015, two tumors were found at the back of Bruce Dickinson’s tongue. He’d undergo seven weeks of chemotherapy and radiation therapy and was thankfully given the all-clear by doctors. It was obviously a worrying experience, and he has discussed with Kerrang about the anxiety that he would be robbed of his iconic voice.

I thought if The Book of Souls is the last thing I ever did that has that voice, I’d be a very happy bunny. I would be happy with this album being my voice’s last statement.

I was pinching myself for the first few shows back, because none of us knew how it was going to sound, my voice. I’d left it for ten months or so, to let it rest and try to heal itself up. Unquestionably there were some things that had changed, and it was difficult. You want to know what the deal is., you just had to open your gob and see what came out. If a bag of spanners fell out, you’d think, oh shit. Bruce Dickinson

Thankfully there were no noticeable changes to Dickinson’s vocals, and at 62 years of age, he is still regarded as one of the finest vocalists in the world. Currently, he is next scheduled to perform live in June and July 2021 for the Legacy Of The Beast tour.
