Bruce Dickinson Turns Down Reality Show
You won't see Maiden man judging talent show anytime soonThe Sun reports that the BBC offered Maiden's frontman a position on forthcoming pop talent show, The Voice, but Bruce (inevitably) turned it down.
But Bruce said: "That show sounds so cr*p and demeaning to everyone involved, I took great delight in turning the BBC down.
"The X Factor is appalling enough, it's no better than Opportunity Knocks."
Maiden will play in the UK later this month on the final leg of their Final Frontier World Tour.
