I thought it was Michael Fassbender at first :facepalm:

Now I know who it is... but have no idea what he has to do with any Maiden songs :confused:

Clue #7 and Clue #8 are about different people - they are linked by the fact these interpreters both covered a famous song whose title hints at an Iron Maiden song... I've said too much already! ;) So @Edington, you can make your guess...

Then I'm going with I Live My Way...
Winner! :)

Clue #1: one more cigarette > "another coffin nail"
Clue #2: Schadenfreude > "Some people are only happy/ When they can watch you fail"
Clue #3: it's my life, it's now or never > from the Bon Jovi song "It's My Life", it echoes the lines "We've only got one lifetime /I'll make my life my own" + in said song, we can hear "Like Frankie [Sinatra] said, I did it my way"
Clue #4: it starts with arpeggios in clean sound with a little guitar melody on it... but it was not written by Dave Murray > it is a Harris/Bayley/gers song indeed.
Clue #5: Eurêka? > "I think I've found the answer"
Clue #6: single only > the song was only released on some version of the "Man On The Edge" single but is absent from "Best of the B-sides".
Clue #7:

> this is Robbie Williams singing Sinatra's "My Way" at the Royal Albert Hall in the early 2000s
Clue #8: Sid Vicious > also responsible for a memorable cover of the classic:
