I know theres people here that have said they love Iron Maiden, but I
m interested to know, who
s the BEST Vocalist for you?? I bet most people will say Bruce Dickinson and I
d defo agree, but I love Paul Di
anno singing 'Killers'(the album, I love his voice) But all round, i like bruce best. I think Bayley is best just sticking to his origanal group [Damn, what they called again??].
Bruce Dickinson took Maiden to a completely new level. They couldn't have achieved what they did with Paul Di'anno, though he was the ideal frontman for those early years when punk played a part in shaping the Maiden sound. Bruce, however, is just about the complete metal singer and frontman, and much more suited to the more ambitious material Maiden have done since the early 80's.
Blaze Bayley was great in Wolfsbane - perfect man for that job - but did nothing for me in Maiden.
Paul Di"Anno has an excellent rough voice which goes wonderfully with early Maiden, but Bruce has a better operatic range and a great stage presence. I never bothered with the vocalist who replaced Dickinson.
