Former IRON MAIDEN vocalist Paul Di'Anno was interviewed on this past Monday's (January 25) edition of "Eddie Trunk Live" on Sirius (channel 19) / XM Radio (channel 53). The chat can now be streamed in three parts below.
Di'Anno kicked off his U.S. tour on January 26 at Dingbatz in Clifton, New Jersey.
Support on the trek is coming from Pittsburgh traditional metallers ICARUS WITCH.
Di'Anno's visa was approved by the U.S. State Department, making it possible for the singer to embark on his first U.S. tour in over 15 years.
Paul Di'Anno took part in the Classic Rock Jam on October 11, 2009 at Shinjuku Koseinenkin-Kaikan in Tokyo, Japan. Professionally filmed video footage of his appearance can be viewed below. Other musicians that took part in the event included Keiko Terada (SHOW-YA), Masashi Nishida (EARTHSHAKER), Minoru Niihara (LOUDNESS) and Eizo Sakamoto (ANTHEM).
When asked by Vue Weekly in a 2009 interview about the possibility of releasing a new studio album in the not-too-distant future, Di'Anno replied, "We did five new tracks in Germany [in 2008] — it's very industrialized — but we got in a bit of an argument with the record company and we told them to piss off, basically. So I kept them songs and a friend of mine in Salisbury down in Southwest England, handed me 16 pieces of music so I'm going to go away when I have a bit of time and see what I can come up with for that."
