Out of the Silent Planet
I think the ''wildman'' vocalist is more suited for a rock band. Maiden's music is more ''busy''. Neither Bruce nor Paul had such stage behavior. You need to adapt to the new band. I could be terribly wrong here, but I think Bruce in Samson had a different stage behavior than after he joined Maiden.Crazy Blaze was gone because he never could be that persona in Maiden, if he looked at the crowd and said "hey you in the glasses" most people would be thinking "who is this cunt? He's not Bruce Dickinson". You can't come into a place acting all Billy Big Bollocks when you're a replacement unless you have something to back it up, which Bruce had with The Number of the Beast, whereas Blaze confidence must have been smashed by the press, and a lot of the fans, reaction to the X Factor.
