Former Iron Maiden singer Paul Di'Anno lashed out at a fan for shouting Bruce Dickinson's name during an October 4 concert in Greece, calling the fan a "fa--ot" and dubbing current Maiden vocalist "Brucy baby." As Rock Overdose reports, Di'Anno's outburst occurred less than 15 minutes into the show. "You think that's funny? You co-k-sucking motherf--ker. There's always one gay guy, always one fa--ot. Man, I'm not even gonna come off stage and beat the p-ss out of you. I'll get my security boys to take you out. Yeah. So shut your f--king mouth. Always one douchebag." The singer then shifted his rage towards Dickinson. "So, Bruce Dickinson," he began. "Listen, I do not sing opera and I'm not a ballerina. I just play f--king straight-ahead punk heavy metal. If you wanna go listen to Brucy baby, f--k off home. Otherwise, I'll play for my f--king friends tonight. So if you don't mind it, suck my d-ck, you c-cksucker." Di'Anno continued his performance, charging through "Marshall Lockjaw" track and the rest of the setlist. A similar incident took place last year in Ukraine, when another fan essentially did the same thing. Paul's reaction was also similar. "I'm sorry I don't do opera," he told the crowd and mimicked Dickinson's vocals on "Run to the Hills." He added: "It's too f--king easy and I'm not gay." Di'Anno got back on the road in August 2011 after serving time for conducting a benefit fraud. He fronted the metal giants on their first two records and was replaced by Dickinson in 1981.
