Bruce Dickinson is plain and simply the greatest Heavy Metal singer to date. Fencer, ball player, author, producer, host of a #1 ranked show on the BBC radio, pilot, music and history enthusiast just to name a few. The focus he's placed on William Blake, the history hes shared about the RAF, and other planes from the wars. The endless fountain of knowledge he has on a great many topics. I know this. LESS influential men have the honor of being knighted. Why stop him?!
