Man, I know a lot of people like him, but I grew up knowing him as the man who killed John Wayne and that's how I've seen him ever since.

Yup, he's pretty damned awesome. I heard a story years ago he punched out Axl Rose for sh*t talking about Maiden. Not sure if true but I like to think it is.

Fun fact (from wikipedia):

In October 2007, Iron Maiden commissioned an Astraeus 757 as transport for their 'Somewhere Back in Time World Tour' in 2008.

The aircraft, named "Ed Force One" after a competition on the band's website, was flown by Dickinson as he is also a commercial airline pilot for Astraeus. The aeroplane was converted into a combi configuration and repainted with a special Iron Maiden livery, along with a list of that year's tour dates. According to Dickinson, Astraeus decided to retain the Iron Maiden artwork when it returned to normal charter service after receiving positive feedback from customers, but had to remove the decals after passengers in Africa refused to board the plane, claiming it to be possessed by evil spirits.

Their hit single "(Don't Fear) The Reaper" was featured in the famous Saturday Night Live sketch, "More cowbell." The original recording was produced at The Record Plant in New York by David Lucas, who sang background vocals with Roeser and played the now famous cowbell part.

So, not actually produced by Bruce Dickinson.
You lied to me, TV.

It's always nice to see a metal/rock star guy do something positive with their money. Instead of solely on hookers and blow.
