Metal Insider’s Top 5: Replacements

Posted by on January 8, 2013

1. Bruce Dickinson, Iron Maiden

There are some that claim that Paul Di’Anno was Iron Maiden’s best vocalist, but they’re in the minority. Di’Anno sang on Maiden’s first two albums, their self-titled debut and Killers, before being axed from the band due to excessive drug use. He was replaced by Bruce Dickinson, and their subsequent album, Number of the Beast, became their first #1 album. Dickinson’s lyrics, vocals, stage presence and all-around renaissance man qualities made him not just the better of the two vocalists, but one of the best frontmen in metal.
