  MEMBERS of heavy metal giants Iron Maiden partied for three days in the Lake District and ran for the hills as part of a traditional event.
  Heavy-metal musicians Bruce Dickinson and Dave Murray were in Grasmere for the wedding of manager Andy Taylorís daughter Louise.
  Louise got married to Mark Christie at a church ceremony in Grasmere but the wedding party and their guests took over the Wordsworth Hotel and spa for three days ó where they were treated to  outdoor BBQs and rocked to a string of live bands from across the country.
  And on Sunday lead singer Dickinson, who has sold 75m albums with Maiden, donned his sports gear and brought a smile to the face of locals by taking part in Grasmere Sportís Guides Race ó where he  came 161st out of 181.

Hi - He still is the lead singer for Iron Maiden, and a commercial airline pilot.


He's just been on Sky News - on the late business segment.

Cross my heart, that I didn't. I somehow knew it. I do like the older stuff of Iron Maiden, like Iron Maiden from 1981, favorite track is Running Free O0

I loved 'Running Free' too.
Remember them playing/miming it on top of the pops!


Now I feel old.
