Bruce Dickinson, no!
In case you don't know, Bruce Dickinson is the most awesome man in the world, as this introductory sentence from Wikipedia makes clear: "Paul Bruce Dickinson... is an English singer, songwriter, airline pilot, fencer, broadcaster, author, screenwriter, actor and former marketing director, best known as the lead vocalist of the heavy metal band Iron Maiden."
I have always been a big fan of classic Iron Maiden (up to and including Seventh Son) but i never paid any attention to Maiden's later stuff or Dickinson's solo career. So when min and i came across this last night, well... first i thought it was a Def Leppard song. Then i was just gobsmacked.
Look, Wikipedia tells me that Dickinson wrote this song after Nikki Sixx seduced away his wife, so i'll kind of give him a pass, and i'll admit that the video itself is either awesomely awful or awfully awesome, but that is such a bad song and the power-pop sound is so far away from Iron Maiden i'm still sure it's all an elaborate ruse of some kind.

he should have lured Nikki Sixx to Montana so he could legally kill him.
