Bruce Dickinson - Trivia


Tyranny Of Souls was recorded as more of a project album rather than a full band effort.
Roy Z is credited with getting Bruce back into the metal scene after persuading him to record Accident Of Birth after the grunge-influenced Skunkworks project.
The songs "Book Of Thel", "Gates Of Urizen", and "Jerusalem", all three of which appear on the album The Chemical Wedding are influenced by and based on poems by romantic era poet/engraver William Blake. Blake's artwork has also been used for sleeve designs for Chemical Wedding and Anthology.
The puppet which adorns the cover of the Accident of Birth album, is named Edison, and is a play on the Iron Maiden mascot Eddie. Both were created by Derek Riggs.
Bruce's version of "Bring Your Daughter... To The Slaughter" originally appeared on the soundtrack of A Nightmare On Elm Street: The Dream Child (1989)
