IRON MAIDEN Meets 'Monty Python'

October 21, 2009

Bryan Reesman of Attention Deficit Delirium reports: IRON MAIDEN frontman Bruce Dickinson recently attended the New York premiere of the IFC documentary "Monty Python: Almost The Truth (The Lawyer’s Cut)", for which he was interviewed. It is airing through Thursday and comes out on DVD next week.

MAIDEN fans have long known that after their concerts are over, the group puts on "Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life" from the film "Life Of Brian". The late "Python" member Graham Chapman appeared in the video for "Can I Play With Madness?", directed by Julian Doyle, who also helmed "Crowley" (the movie written by Dickinson and inspired by his "Chemical Wedding" solo album) and edited the "Monty Python" films "Life Of Brian" and "The Meaning Of Life".

There's always been a cheeky sense of humor that Dickinson and MAIDEN have possessed that certainly mirrors the absurdity that "Python" embraced in their heyday.

Attention Deficit Delirium caught up with Dickinson on the red carpet of the IFC premiere to get his take on the legendary British comedy troupe.
