Bruce Dickinson Sings ‘Perfect Strangers’ From Deep Purple
Behemoth’s frontman Adam ‘Nergal’ Darski posted a video on his Instagram in which Iron Maiden’s Bruce Dickinson sang Deep Purple’s ‘Perfect Strangers.’
Bruce Dickinson is a prolific musician known for being Iron Maiden’s lead singer since 1981. When he was a teenager, he became interested in rock and metal music after hearing Deep Purple’s song ‘Child In Time.’ Due to that, the first album Dickinson ever bought was Deep Purple’s ‘In Rock,’ and the band became his source of inspiration.
On November 5, Bruce Dickinson and Deep Purple bassist Roger Glover performed live at Jon Lord’s tribute ‘Concerto For Group And Orchestra’ in Hungary. They performed along with the Győr Symphony Orchestra, Kaitner Z Doka, and Bernhard Welz. During the performance, Bruce Dickinson sang ‘Perfect Strangers’ by Deep Purple.
According to his Instagram post, Nergalwent from Poland to Hungary to see Dickinson perform. He said that Dickinson was one of his biggest inspirations, and ‘Perfect Strangers’ is among the first metal songs that attracted him to music. Moreover, he then praised Dickinson by saying his performance was unreal.
Nergal’s Instagram post read:
“When one of your biggest inspirations and one of the most iconic rock figures turn to be the coolest kid on the block! Starstruck and overwhelmed! By the way, I’m not sure if I ever told you that… ‘Perfect Strangers’ must be one of the very first heavy songs that got me into music! Such a classic and their last nite’s performance with Bruce Dickinson on vocals – un-fuckin-real!“
