In another excerpt, Bruce recalled an unusual situation involving his idol. “Not only did I meet him, I went on tour with him when I was in a band called SAMSON [grupo que ele fazia parte antes de integrar o IRON MAIDEN]. I’m in a studio. We made an album at Ian Gillan’s studio. We were all in the pub and had a few drinks. Ian Gillan comes in and says, ‘Hey, what a great singer. Who is the singer? ‘At that moment, I felt a sudden urge to throw up. I ran out, threw up a lot in the bathroom when my idol came in, kicked the door and said, ‘Come on, man. We will clean you with a towel. ‘ He put me in a taxi and sent me home. I never forgot that, and he never let me forget too, “said braggart Bruce Dickinson.
