Bruce Dickinson, frontman with Iron Maiden has offered further explanation regarding his remarks made about the Rock Hall Of Fame. The singer claims he’s “really happy” the metallers have not been inducted into the pantheon of music acts.
Artists are inducted following 25 years prior to the release of their debut single or record. The heavy metal band have been eligible for inclusion ever since 2005 but have so far not received a nomination.
According to the NME, Dickinson had dubbed the Hall Of Fame “an utter and complete load of bollocks run by a bunch of sanctimonious bloody Americans who wouldn’t know rock and roll if it hit them in the face.”
However, Dickinson wasn’t pleased with the way his remarks were receved by the media.The frontman said coverage inferred that he was “upset” the group hadn’t been awarded the accolade by the Hall Of Fame. He explained that they were happy,
“I’m really happy we’re not there and I would never want to be there. If we’re ever inducted I will refuse – they won’t bloody be having my corpse in there.”
“Rock and roll music does not belong in a mausoleum in Cleveland. It’s a living, breathing thing, and if you put it in a museum, then it’s dead. It’s worse than horrible, it’s vulgar.”
