Sources tell The International Business Times singer Bruce Dickinson recently completed tastings for a new limited-edition stout, and there are plans to launch it in pubs later this year (16).

The untitled new brew will hit taps alongside the band's award-winning Trooper beer, which hit a milestone of 10 million pints sold last year (15).

DICkinson admits the idea for a Maiden beer came about as the band was being courted for a red wine.

Bruce Dickinson Working On First Solo Album In A Decade


Iron Maiden Bruce Dickinson

The British rocker has written half the tracks for the record and plans to finish off working on the new material while rehearsing for the band's 2016 world tour.

"I'm looking forward to getting stuck into some sensible rehearsals," Bruce tells Classic Rock magazine. "I may even sneak off and do some solo songwriting because I've got half of an album on the blocks...

"It could be a cool, relatively unchallenging way of pre-warming up the voice before I go into Maiden rehearsals. So making some noise that way first could be a possibility."

Bruce Dickinson Writing Memoir


Bruce Dickinson Iron Maiden

The veteran rocker has signed a deal with HarperCollins to tell his life story in a new book, and he will write the tome during his downtime on Iron Maiden's 2016 tour.

"It was flattering to be approached to write a book about my experiences and it seems an appropriate time to do this as I will have plenty of time on tour next year to work on a book," he says in a statement.

Denise Oswald, of HarperCollins' Dey Street imprint, says, "Bruce Dickinson might quite literally be the world's most interesting man. He's a true Renaissance man, and being one of the greatest rock singers of all time is merely the beginning. His memoir, like his voice, is sure to set a new gold standard and we're thrilled to be working with him on it."

Fan Returns Adrian Smith's Phone


Iron Maiden

The musician was devastated to misplace the device because it was packed full of song ideas and videos of himself playing the new tunes, but he was later reunited with it thanks to a loyal fan who found the phone and sent it back to him.

"I've got tons of song ideas on my phone," he tells Musicradar.com. "But it was a bit embarrassing, really, in America we do runners (quick exits) from gigs - we jump offstage, jump straight into the cars and go haring off, and we stop at a gas station or a layby and change in the dark on our way to the airport.

"It sounds crazy, but I actually lost my phone in America doing that and it was full of ideas. I had no password on my phone, so this guy found it and he went through my ideas, and there's me sitting in my underpants in a hotel room on video singing and playing guitar! But I got a letter (from the man who found the phone) and he sent it back to me. He said he was a fan and said he loved my little performances on the phone! Of course, I thanked him and sent him a load of merch (merchandise)."

Bruce Dickinson's Kids Got On The Road Drug Awareness

The singer took his three youngsters on the road with the Number of the Beast hitmakers and their early experience of rock 'n' roll hedonism was a valuable lesson.

DICkinson tells Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper, "What was great for my kids was when they were growing up and we took them out on the road. I got some cracking questions from five-year-olds, 'Daddy, why is that man doing that?'

"They would be backstage, there would be some idiot who'd done too much coke sweating profusely, teeth chattering. 'That's because he's on drugs,' I'd say. 'Drugs? Are they a bad thing?' And I'd say, 'Judge for yourself'.
