I'm not sure if this was in 1995, because I thought Bruce cut his hair in 1996. And I can't find the date of these awards. Anyway, this is an interview with him, done by Vanessa Warwick. Bruce is very enthousiastic about his upcoming band and album (Skunkworks), however he doesn't want to reveal toomuch yet. ;)

This is a nice acoustic performance of Tears of the Dragon on MTV:

Dive back into this album with these clips! Very nice "Tears of the Dragon" footage (incl. the making-of) and interesting explanation by the man himself.

Originally broadcasted on August 30th, 1994:

Ive seen that second one before, someone posted the entire MTV episode before, which featured a funny "swordfight" with Bruce...but it seems theyve been taken down along with all the other good MTV videos (like that one covering Maiden's performance at Donington adn them explaining about the Fear of the Dark album).
They also played Hell No accoustic on the same episode btw.

Hehe funny stuff:

Bruce Dickinson as actor in Paradise Club, a British TV-series in ten independent episodes.

Bruce is starring in episode 7, "Rock 'n' roll roulette" in which he is a famous guitarist/singer, Jake Skinner.
Here's the performance at Paradise Club, playing Johnny B. Goode.

You're welcome. I have never seen it before but it was funny to see Bruce handling a guitar like that.
Looks like it's from around 1990 or perhaps even a bit earlier(?)

It was 1990. I remember watching it when it was broadcasted on the BBC. I lived in sunny Slough then.

Thanks a lot, I find it interesting (and kind of strange) to see Bruce like this! Amazing that this suddenly pops up on the internet, after all these years, never hearing a word about it before! And how the hell did he find time to do this?   :blink: In some parts his acting really isn't that bad.

That part with Janick is actually Bruce's whole Tattooed Millionaire touring band of 1990 (including Dickie Fliszar on drums who also played on "Tears of the Dragon", "Broken" and "Silver Wings") :)

This one is on Bruce's official DVD "Anthology" (which every sane fan should try to purchase!)

Yup, especially for the Tyranny of Souls EPK and also the interview for the Anthology. Always interesting to hear his stories about making music videos and stuff.

Indeed, Bruce has a gift of telling all these anecdotes! Loved the part about throwing those recordings away in LA (1990).  :lol:

Quite interesting that he completely denies having any plans for the Maiden re-union and says that his solo career is his priority for the next three years, yet less than a year later he rejoined Maiden! '
He also highlights The Number of the Beast, Piece of Mind and Powerslave as his "best" albums.  That seems to hint that he didn't enjoy Maiden so much after the World Slavery tour, because in my opinion at least his vocals didn't drop in quality until No Prayer.
