Bruce was raised by his grandparents, as his mother and father moved to Sheffield soon after he was born, to where he moved when he was six years old, however, he didn`t stay long with them as he was sent to boarding school in Northamptonshire when he was 13 years old. When he turned 18 years, Bruce returned to Sheffield and enrolled at the King Edward VII High School, where his interest in music intensified and soon he began to perform in the high school band entitled Paradox, later changed to Styx. However, the bands life span was rather short, splitting before the end of high school.

Acquiring A-levels in English, History and Economics, Bruce joined the Territorial Army for six months, but after he acknowledging that he couldn`t build a career in the army he at Queen Mary College, London, eventually managing to graduate with a degree in history..

Bruce`s professional career began in 1979 when he joined the band Samson as a lead singer, with whom he recorded three albums before joining Iron Maiden in 1981. As a member of the Iron Maiden, Bruce has become one of the greatest heavy metal vocalists in the history of the genre, winning numerous accolades and award with the band.

His first recording with the band was the No.1 charted album “The Number Of The Beast” released in 1982. The album spawned hit songs such as “Run To The Hills”, “Number Of The Beast” and Hallowed Be Thy Name”. Until his departure that lasted from 1993 until 1999, he already had released seven albums, all of them garnering positive critical reviews, debuting in top spots on the charts, and increasing his overall net worth. In 1992, the band released the album “Fear Of The Dark” which debuted at the top of the UK charts, and was certified gold in the UK. It spawned hit songs such as “Fear Of The Dark”, “Be Quick Or Be Dead” and “Wasting Love”.

In 1999, Bruce returned to his position as a lead singer, and since then, the group has released five more albums, increasing his own popularity and net worth. Some of the albums include “Dance Of Death” (2003), “The Final Frontier” (2010) and their latest release “The Book Of Souls” (2015).

Over the course of his career as a musician, Bruce has released a total of 12 albums with the band Iron Maiden, and has worked on his solo career, releasing six albums: some of them include “Tattooed Millionaire” (1990), “Tyranny Of Souls” (2005) and “Accident Of Birth” (1997) among others.

When it comes to his personal life, Bruce has been married to Paddy Bowden since 1990, with whom he has sons Austin and Griffin who are also in the music business, and daughter Kia. He was previously married to Jane from 1983 until 1987. The family now lives in London.

In 2015, Bruce was diagnosed with a tumor on the back of his tongue, but after chemotherapy and radiation therapy, Bruce is expected to recover completely. In May, a routine check showed no remaining signs of the disease.

1Often says "Scream for Me" in concerts to the audience
2Various song-specific trademarks, such as holding a Union Jack and wearing a 19th century British cavalry uniform for "The Trooper".
3His high pitched singing voice which has given him the nickname "The Air Raid Siren"
1I still think that Clive Burr was the best drummer Maiden ever had. That's not taking anything away from Nicko. Technically, NIcko's far more competent than Clive. It's just that Clive had this incredible feel, and I regret that he wasn't given enough time to go and sort himself out.
2As long as there is Iron Maiden, there will be a concert in Chile.
3Major labels blow all their money massively and blame it on the band.
4I'm not going to do any more solo touring.
5A few of these interviews have gone slightly awry, because every now and again there has been the odd conflict of interest between interviews because of the Iron Maiden record, and I am a bit long-winded.
6There are a lot of stuff on the record that I am thinking is generic but actually it is just as good as everybody else who is putting stuff out at the time.
7The mystical poetry of William Blake's artwork also forms the basis for the album cover.
8South Wales is a hub of aviation.
9Well, it's a nice quiet time for Iron Maiden, and I'll be releasing a new solo album next year, so this is a really good time for the managing out my solo career, which is quite well.
10Life on the road can get a little one-dimensional. I didn't want to reach 40 and have to say all I'd done was look out the window of a tour bus and get drunk.
11A guy called Arthur Brown... was a big influence of mine... and also Ian Anderson from Jethro Tull.
12The more guitars we have onstage the better, as I'm concerned.
13My son is in a band, and he's a singer, and his vocals... they're screaming-growling stuff... and he's got a pretty reasonable voice. Yet he practices really hard to get the screaming-growling thing without losing that voice every five minutes. So I'm, like, 'Hats off to you.'
14With the Internet, bands can come and go every five minutes and the music looks disposable.
15I don't have interns. I don't have a manager. I don't have assistants. I don't have a secretary. I can't figure out Outlook Express. I'm the worst person in the world answering e-mails, and my phone is probably the oldest, most battered phone you can find. So I just talk to people.
16Well, yeah, sometimes I get a little too creative.
17Don't ask me to put up a shelf, but I love engineering.
18I don't like being recognised, I have no interest in being famous at all, I just do what I do. If I could be like Captain Kirk and beam myself up and then beam myself down, I would!
19I was an accident - my mum was only 16 when she had me.
20Business is just about enabling human beings, nothing more, nothing less. Businesses need to recognize this fundamental fact.
21There are a lot of bands using self-abuse as a marketing gimmick.
22I shall refract myself, yes, I shall no longer be known as the prism.
23Kids get bored easily. They have got to get out and get their hands dirty: make things, dismantle things, fix things.
24If it all just happens like this for the rest of my life, it's going to be one endless Groundhog Day. I determined that I was not prepared to submit to this regime, so I thought I had to do something about it.
25I've had a bit of experience at lots and lots of different arenas as it were, some of them completely creative, some of them quite technical. The interesting thing is, is that I found that the technical arenas actually are also very creative or can be very creative.
26I enjoy making solo albums because over the years it's evolved into more of a genuine personal expression of story-telling and day dreams, and I work in a way that has more control.
27In my teenage years I was put off the idea of a career in flying, because I'd convinced myself that you had to be a boffin with degrees in maths and physics, which were my weakest subjects.
28I think the best way to find out about something is to try to do it to the max. A lot of people take up a hobby or sport and then find an excuse not to carry on with it. Once I start something, I won't stop until I'm as good at it as I'll ever be.
29I am taking a break, but not a huge break because the Maiden record is actually happening right now, and I am recording it as we speak, well not right as we speak, but close.
30One of my earliest ventures was when I was nine years old. I realized there was a shortage of pencils at school, so I started Rent-a-Pencil. But I made a fundamental mistake. Everybody stole my pencils.
31The celebrity thing, I mean, Lindsay Lohan - what's she for? I look at that and throw my hands up in despair.
32When you cut human beings down to size, we're really quite simple creatures; food, shelter, warmth, light, heat and you build it up from there really until you finally go Gucci shoes or whatever it is or whatever your consumer desires are. All those desires are ultimately, they're about gratification.
33Best two rock voices I've heard in a last few years both have been from grunge bands: it's Eddie Vedder and the other one is Chris Cornell from Soundgarden.
34Life is too short to do the things you don't love doing.
35Engineering stimulates the mind.
36My aim as a frontman is always to try and shrink the venue, if you can, to turn that football stadium into the world's smallest club. At least you have to try.
37I'm very good at daydreaming. Ask any of my schoolteachers.
38When I write with Maiden, then I write only with the guys in Maiden, we don't do songs from outside people.
39Rock music should be gross: that's the fun of it. It gets up and drops its trousers.
40I find that fencing and training give me more stamina and help me deal with the craziness of being on the road so much.
41If heavy metal bands ruled the world, we'd be a lot better off.
42Teachers need to be more inspirational. But it's also up to engineering to make itself more interesting.
43Engineering stimulates the mind. Kids get bored easily. They have got to get out and get their hands dirty: make things, dismantle things, fix things. When the schools can offer that, you'll have an engineer for life.
44Apart from death and taxes, the one thing that's certain in this life is that I'll never be a fashion icon.
45I do like Marylin Manson, actually. I think, he's very talented and he did make some great music.
46If your only arbiter of anything is money, really you should... go and rob banks.
47Everything you need to know about Iron Maiden is onstage.
48The joke in aviation is, 'If you want to make a million, you'd better start with £10m.'
49My dad always told me, 'I don't care what you do. Just aim to be the best at it. Even if it's the world's best window cleaner.'
50I'm trying to be as green as I can. As an airline pilot, I have a carbon footprint that's a size 10, so it's pretty hard.
51If you really want to annoy me, ask me when I'm going to retire from rock n' roll.
52Iron Maiden is an institution, and I'm delighted that I'm involved in it, but there was a time that I wasn't delighted so I quit.
53I never intended to become a professional pilot. But, as I became more curious about aircraft, and, well, not being John Travolta, I realized that the only way I was ever going to fly a jet is if I got a job.
