Who is Bruce Dickinson?

Nicknamed, ‘The Air Raid Siren’, for his trademark soaring high-pitched voice, Bruce Dickinson is the heavy metal legend, who never tried too hard to weave his voice into the rich history of heavy metal music. Widely considered as one of the greatest rock vocalists of all time, Dickinson was the pioneer of the genre of operatic vocal style, a singing style that was later adapted by many metal vocalists. He has an estimated net worth of $115 million and has recorded around twelve albums as the lead singer of the heavy metal band, ‘Iron Maiden’. He later ventured out on his own, in order to pursue a solo career and released a total of 6 solo albums. Some of his acclaimed solo albums include, ‘Accident of Birth’, ‘The Chemical Wedding’ and ‘Tyranny of Souls’. His passion for music began during his time in boarding school and subsequently he became a part of many small time bands, before he joined ‘Iron Maiden’ as the band’s lead singer. He is one of the most acclaimed heavy metal vocalists in the history of this genre.
