Iron Maiden Brand Norway Killer An 'A--hole'
2
Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson branded the Norway killer an "a--hole" on stage in London last Friday. They were on stage at the O2 Arena when Bruce gave a speech about how Maiden fans are united, no matter where they're from or who they are - unless they're an evil extremist. "There's something [in our music and message] that unites people, and it doesn't matter what color they are or what religion they are, or whether they are male or female or somewhere in between." "We were in Belfast the other night [where you hear] all the bullsh-t about Protestant, Catholic, this and that and the other. And I just said, 'Look, this is a safe house, this is our house, this is Maiden's house, everybody's f--king welcome and we don't turn anybody away, no matter who they are." "Except maybe... We were in Oslo the other week [where] the most recent, bullsh-t, appalling atrocity wasn't committed by a Muslim, it was committed by somebody who called themselves a Christian - the a--hole over there, really. Unbelievable." Thanks to Blabbermouth for the report. See below for fan footage of Bruce's speech, and for the band's London set-list. 01. Satellite 15... The Final Frontier 02.

    Except maybe... We were in Oslo the other week [where] the most recent, bullsh-t, appalling atrocity wasn't committed by a Muslim, it was committed by somebody who called themselves a Christian - the a--hole over there, really. Unbelievable. Wait... So, if it had been a Muslim it would be alright? And Does it normally go without saying that it's a Muslim? I respect Bruce a great deal, but I hope he didn't mean it like that...
    I think he means that theres a huge amount of racism towards Muslims because of certain extremists, and he's saying 'look at this media, not all terrorists are Muslims' Sorry, didn;t explian this very well, not great with words...sorry!

    Please, tell me you're just a bad troll... You can't really be that stupid.

    Between a male and female? Is that what he meant?

    Everything Bruce says or do always make my day! I was really sad at that period (i live 30 minutes away from the island where all the kids lost their life) and I could really need something positive to light up my day. Then I read this article

    Well done Ultimate Guitar. This is worth noting. Who gives a shit if Bruce Dickinson thinks the Norwegian murder is an arsehole? Anyone who thinks the ****er was sick does.

    Yeah, cause the band actually kills and tortures people. What do the album names have to do with anything?

    Using the word 'Killer' isn't the same as committing a murder
