No Bruce = A worse vocalist in the band
No Steve = No Maiden

Before voting for Bruce Dickinson, just check the best songs of maiden in this website. You'll find that all the songs in the list (1-10) are written by Steve Harris... ALONE!
Any more arguments? I don't think so!

1. Steve Harris formed Iron Maiden!

2. Except for Geddy Lee, he's the greatest bassist ever.

3. Along with the fact that he penned such numbers as Hallowed Be Thy Name, Run to the Hills, Aces High, The Trooper, etc. , he is still going strong at 57! UP THE IRONS!

The founder of one of the best heavy metal band, a genius as a songwriter and an awesome bass player.

2 Bruce Dickinson Bruce Dickinson Paul Bruce Dickinson, known professionally as Bruce Dickinson, is an English musician, airline pilot, and broadcaster. He is most well known for being the lead singer in heavy metal band Iron Maiden and his solo career.

I don't like Maiden without Bruce, but Bruce without Maiden is very great, and I'd rather pick Accident of Birth or Chemical Wedding than any of Maiden's 90's stuff.

HE ROCKS THIS WORLD! Hey the dude who said that Bruce is the worse vocalist in the band, no guts no glory.

A true heavy metal vocalist, no one sings like Bruce, he fits right into the classical heavy metal

Almost all the songs without him are pretty bad. - kity21

3 Dave Murray Dave Murray David Michael Murray is an English guitarist and songwriter best known as one of the earliest members of the British heavy metal band Iron Maiden.

He's the best, I think he the most brilliant guitarist of iron maiden.


The first Iron Maiden guitarist, I have a lot of respect for him. HE'S THE BEST!

A very special sound different from other guitarrist, 100 percent Maiden. Very nice guy apart from that.

4 Adrian Smith Adrian Smith Adrian Frederick "H" Smith is an English guitarist, best known as a member of Iron Maiden, for whom he writes songs and performs live backing vocals on some tracks.

Seventh Son was a masterpiece

Adrian leaves.

No Prayer through to Virtual 11 are albums which only hint at Maidens former greatness.

Adrian rejoins and Brave New World through to Frontier are all brilliant. Is is no coincidence.

He's my favorite guitarist. I don't know why. - UFasten8Me

Dave and Adrian are the best guitar duo in metal!
Glenn Tipton and K.K. Downing (from Judas Priest) are the only competition - rock2metal

5 Janick Gers Janick Gers Janick Robert Gers is an English musician, best known for being one of the three current guitarists in Iron Maiden, along with Dave Murray and Adrian Smith, as well as his earlier work with Gillan and White Spirit.

Janick has a great personality. At some points, he can be a very serious, intelligent, and down-to-earth guy (look at some of his interviews). But when he's on stage, he runs around and becomes a very funny, humorous guy. Iron Maiden wouldn't be what it is without Janick!

he's great guitar player, he's always active, running all over the stage and he has such a great character, he's always calm and funny, he keeps the band alive.

Janick is a total showoff, how the hell is he better than Nicko?!

6 Nicko McBrain

Loudness is an important characteristic of heavy metal music, & Nicko Mc Brian does that too well. Without him & his constant beat, Iron Maiden is nowhere.

theres just a certain charm to him you can't help liking him.

7 Paul Dianno

Not such a great vocalist as Bruce but much more energy and charisma. The first two albums are my favorite ones!

8 Clive Burr Clive Burr

One of the best and most underrated drummers in metal history. Not my favourite member, but certainly Maiden's best drummer and extremely under-appreciated. - Mrveteran
