Paul Di'Anno Discusses Early Iron Maiden Songs: 'They Are Fantastic Classic Songs & We've Made History'

The Metal Voice recently interview former Iron Maiden singer Paul Di'Anno.

In the chat Paul talks about his upcoming Warhorse debut album and Iron Maiden legacy

Paul Di'Anno's Warhorse announce that their self-titled debut album will be released worldwide on July 19th via BraveWords Records

Paul Di'Anno speaking about his new album, "Paul Di'Anno's Warhorse is my first studio project after many years of being away from the studio and not performing. I remember when we announced that we were recording an album in Croatia with completely unknown musicians, many were shocked and no one knew in which direction we would go. Warhorse exudes pure energy and reflects everything I went through while recording the album."

When asked if he would be open to having former Iron Maiden guitarist Dennis Stratton on Stage

"People have been moving this around but I say no.  I really don't see the point. Dennis is a great bloke, great guitar player. That is just  for the cheap thrill side of things. I'm not here for that."

When asked about the cover song of Depeche Mode's 'Precious' off his Debut album Warhorse

"Yeah, I please guilty on that one. They are one of my favorite bands of all time. Plus we all used to live near each other in Eats London, Essex. We would see each other around."

When asked if he will be performing in North America

"We got  Canada  coming up, if they let me back into the country again (Laughs). We are still working on US it's up and down with them. "

When asked if he still loves performing Iron Maiden Songs after so many decades later

"Yeah, their classic songs they are fantastic, obviously and classics.  We've made history, nobody sounded like us and it's great. It's good to do the honour because Iron Maiden aren't doing them ( Most Di'anno era Songs) you know what I mean. So you get the best of both you know Maiden fans they get  me F-kn up  the songs up and Maiden doing a good job."

When asked if Charlotte the Harlot song was based on a real person

"Yeah sort of her real name is High Hill Lil. I think that is who (the band) are referring to."

When asked what song he auditioned with for Iron Maiden

'Deep Purple's Dealer."

Tim Henderson of BraveWords Records, "The killer is on the loose again and original Iron Maiden singer Paul D’Anno is riding his Warhorse into new battles with eyes of fire and a fighting spirit. Wrath children pay attention!"
