THE TROOPER: Bruce Dickinson has battled cancer, flown planes and fronted Iron Maiden. Now he has a book.

As the fearless, freewheeling frontman of metal giants Iron Maiden, no obstacle was too high for the leaping and bounding Bruce Dickinson. In 2014 that all changed when doctors discovered a large cancerous lump in his tongue. Dickinson’s 40-year career manning the cockpit for Iron Maiden—quite literally; he is the band’s singer and a commercial pilot—came to an abrupt stop. Radiation therapy fried the singer’s vocal cords. Unable to sing or perform, he penned an autobiography: What Does This Button Do? Listen to personal readings and stories from Dickinson, as he remembers the past and looks to the future.
