A long-awaited memoir from the larger-than-life, multifaceted lead vocalist of Iron Maiden, one of the most successful, influential and enduring rock bands ever.

Pioneers of Britain’s nascent Rock & Metal scene back in the late 1970s, Iron Maiden smashed its way to the top, thanks in no small part to the high-octane performances, operatic singing style, and stage presence of its second, but twice-longest-serving, lead singer, Bruce Dickinson. As Iron Maiden’s front man – first from 1981 to 1993, and then from 1999 to the present – Dickinson has been, and remains, a man of legend.

But OTT front man is just one of the many hats Bruce wears. In addition to being one of the world’s most storied and well-respected singers and songwriters, he is an airline captain, aviation entrepreneur, motivational speaker, beer brewer, novelist, radio presenter, and film scriptwriter. He has also competed as a world-class level fencer. Often credited as a genuine polymath Bruce, in his own words (and handwritten script in the first instance!), sets forth many personal observations guaranteed to inspire curious souls and hard-core fans alike.

Dickinson turns his unbridled creativity, passion, and anarchic humour to reveal some fascinating stories from his life, including his thirty years with Maiden, his solo career, his childhood within the eccentric British school system, his early bands and his recent battle with cancer.

Bold, honest, intelligent and very funny, WHAT DOES THIS BUTTON DO? is an up-close look inside the life, heart, and mind of one of the most unique and interesting men in the world; a true icon of rock.

Worksop's finest. Along with: Lee Westwood, Graham Taylor, Donald Pleasence, John Parr. Most of them have wisely left Worksop and run to the hills....

There was a story Kid Creole was from there, but turns out he married a Worksop girl or summat.

Looks like an interesting read, even though I hate Iron Maiden. Not a big fan of heavy metal, especially from that era. Had a mate who used to insist I listen to them, and quite frankly they seemed a bit cheesy. I'd play some Joy Division and then have to endure some dross about monsters from hell or whatever.

Ha, ha, good point - each to their own.
Well I like Iron Maiden and Joy Division. I also like music biographies and suspect this will be a good read.
Nice bloke - met him twice backstage, Steve Harris is a miserable tw@t though.
Olympic-standard fencer, professional pilot who takes his band on tour in his own 747, should be a good read.
