Bruce is an all-around cool guy in my book. He’s got a big mouth, but that’s a lead singer thing. Anyway, it’s great to hear he’s helping out:
Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson reportedly came to the rescue of hundreds of British citizens stranded in war-ravaged Beirut. Dickinson who is also a jet pilot, flew a Boeing 757 to Cyprus where he scooped up the evacuees and flew them back to Gatwick. No word on whether Dickinson cranked “Run to the Hills” on the PA.
“Run to the Hills”? Wouldn’t it be “Aces High“?! Or hell, even “Tailgunner“! But “Aces High” has that great line, “Got to get airborne before it’s too late!” Hell, let me post the video in honor of Bruce’s heroics.
