It's got nothing to do with Bruce being better than Paul - it's got everything to do with Paul's inability to perform. If Paul was in comparable shape to 1981, then sure. But...look at the guy. This is why Steve fired him, because Steve saw the Paul Di'Anno route of life and knew Maiden needed someone who could carry them for 20+ years.I agree. Bruce is so much Paul's better, that it would be a farce to let them share the same stage!
