Iron Maiden: I’m No Drone Maker

Iron Maiden singer Bruce Dickinson has denied receiving a $500 million contract from the U.S. military to manufacture drones.

The claim had been made on the blog Dorset Eye in a post titled “Bruce Dickinson: Rock’n'Roll Warmonger,” which cited an announcement on a South African conference speakers’ website as its proof that a company Dickinson invested in is making drones.

Dickinson’s spokesperson issued a statement saying, “This is a totally inaccurate and malicious piece of writing that seems to have stemmed from an unfortunate mistake in terminology on a South African website that the writer of said blog has since used as a starting point and catalyst to go off on a flight of sheer fantasy.” The statement continues by saying, “Both Bruce Dickinson and Iron Maiden’s manager Rod Smallwood were early investors in, and remain great supporters of, Hybrid Air Vehicles, a company that has nothing whatsoever to do with drones, ‘lighter than air’ or otherwise!”
