Bruce Dickinson, the man who fronts Iron Maiden and has impeccable taste in pants, will fully recovery from his tongue cancer.
The band claims specialists have issued a positive prognosis regarding the tumor that has grown at the back of Bruce’s mouth.
“Over the last few days, Bruce has been to see his specialists and following examinations, including visual, we’re delighted to update everyone that the situation remains extremely optimistic for a full recovery,” says Iron Maiden.
“We will still not have final confirmation that the cancer has been completely eradicated until Bruce can have an MRI scan in May, as previously advised in Rod’s recent message to the fans on this site, and the period to full recovery will continue for a few months yet,” the band adds.
“Typically Bruce’s immediate reaction to the specialists’ good news was to be as active as feasibly possible, taking in a couple of visits to the Maiden office, one to the Hybrid Air Vehicle hangar to see latest progress, and a brief trip to his local pub, much to the surprise and delight of all his friends there,” the statement from Maiden adds.
“We just wanted to share this latest piece of good news with all Maiden’s fans.”
That’s so rad.
If we had lost Bruce, I’m sure the world would have shifted on its access a little bit, causing mountains to rise out of the oceans, rendering catastrophic damage to the globe.
