Discuss your thoughts about "Tears Of A Clown" here!
Only you know why you are here & why your are the only person to contribute anything of substance to this thread.Now I know why I might have missed info on this song, I wanted to skip this on purpose (what am I doing here?), but -and I stress that I haven't read why Bruce loves this song- I find it quite a novelty that Maiden write extensively about authentic emotions of someone (famous) outside of the band. It happened with Robert Oppenheimer in BTATS to a certain extent, but this about Robin Williams sounds like a more personal story, more dark (in a different way), and more depressing/sad/no way out-ish (because of the suicide aspect).
