Report: Bruce Dickinson, singer of Iron Madien takes shots at Metallica…

Metallica may have already buried the hatchet with Megadeth, but it seems that Iron Maiden still has a grudge against Metallica. In an interview with Metal Hammer magazine, Bruce Dickinson admitted he got a backlash for saying Iron Maiden is better than Metallica, but instead of being apologetic, he continued to slam Metallica even more.

Read what Bruce have to say, here.

While I’m sure the Metallica haters would agree and the Iron Maiden haters would disagree, I’m going to side with Metallica on this one. Hell, I fucking LOVE Iron Maiden! I’ve been listening to Maiden for years and even have a few of their albums on my Ipod. While I love the band, I think Bruce Dickinson is nothing but an egotistical asshole. This isn’t the first time Bruce took shots at Metallica publicly in interviews, he’s done it many times before.

On top of that, Iron Maiden has had a long feud with Ozzy & Sharon for years.

As far as Bruce slamming Metallica goes, I think Bruce is jealous that Metallica is more mainstream than them. Plus, Iron Maiden could be mad that they weren’t asked to play on “The Big 4” shows. I don’t think Metallica and Iron Maiden ever toured before. I can see why James Hetfield wouldn’t play with Maiden.

While Metallica isn’t for everybody, people shouldn’t hate on them. They’re good guys. They respect other bands and all they want to do is play their music for the fans.

I hate those kind of bands that think they are better than other bands. Like I said before, you need to leave your ego out the door and let the people do the talking. Thinking yourself as a “better” or “more” talented musician, just makes you look like an ass. That’s what Bruce is, an ass. I’m pretty sure that the boys in Metallica are all Iron Maiden fans as well, so what Bruce is doing to them is pretty disrespectful.

I’m sure we’ll get a response from James Hetfield soon, so I can’t wait to hear his thoughts.
