BRUCE DICKINSON - New Solo Album In The Works?
Metal Meltdown recently caught up with vocalist Henning Basse
ROTH, SONS OF SEASONS, ex-METALIUM) to discuss a variety of subjects,
including an aborted audition for SAVATAGE.
During the interview Basse
commented on meeting up with IRON MAIDEN
frontman Bruce Dickinson in Los
Angeles while on tour with Roth:
Basse: "Uli told me of course before, 'There might be a chance that
Bruce Dickinson is coming up, and we have to jam with him, and you will
be on stage with him singing his background vocals.' We wanted to do
'Mistreated' and 'Black Night,' and even maybe if he's in the mood for
'Run To The Hills'. So we were jamming that 'Run To The Hills' song the
night before. It didn't work out, because he was working with Roy Z the
whole day doing this solo record, and there wasn't any chance for him to
sing live. I woke up, and I heard this really strong British accent in
the back of the bus, so I came in and he was sitting there. He was
really a gentleman, really down to earth, and we were chatting a bit and
having a couple pictures."
