I'll shoot the gunner first!
Great news for Bruce, I'm so glad! And for the new album, of course!
I don't post here much but this is worthy of a reply.... I feel so much happier now. I lost my dad to cancer 3 years ago so anything cancer orientated makes me feel sick. Here is hoping that all clear means all clear for the future.
A day at a time to build up strength and get back to full fitness. Brilliant news.
“I would like to thank the fantastic medical team who have been treating me for the last few months, resulting in this amazing outcome. It’s been tough on my family and in many ways it was harder for them than me. I’d also like to send a heartfelt thanks to all our fans for their kind words and thoughts. I’m a firm believer in trying to maintain a positive attitude, and the encouragement from the global Maiden family meant a great deal to me. Right now, I’m feeling extremely motivated and can’t wait to get back to business as usual, as soon as I can!”
Rod said "weeks" not "months" for album work. Which means a few months, as opposed to a lot of months.
Place your bets now! I predict US album release on August 18.
My prediction is unfortunately more cynical, despite how little there apparently is left to do on the album. A new album "this year" could mean anything from now until December 31st, and since they're not touring at all this year, I'd almost expect them to push it back as far as possible to come close to coinciding with the tour to support it.

Your prediction isn't even there, except in the vaguest terms. If you wanna criticize my prediction, fine; what's yours? I put an exact date out there, where's yours?
I don't mind criticism. But I get more than a little sick and tired of people telling me how I'm wrong, when they don't have the backbone to make their own guess. I'm fucking tired of trying to make a contribution here, only to see people knock it down without adding anything new.
So how about you come up with your own actual prediction, as long as you think you're good enough to call mine wrong.

...I think something unintentionally touched a nerve here, SMX. I didn't read anything catty or dismissive in Bryers' post, if anything he's saying that he hopes you're right, but thinks that we won't get a new album 'til later. It's not cool to get shot down, but I think you're projecting something else onto a pretty innocent post here.
