In a new interview with Rolling Stone Iron Maiden mastermind, Steve Harris talked about Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame induction.
“I don’t mind that we’re not in things like that,”
“I don’t think about things like that. It’s very nice if people give you awards or accolades, but we didn’t get into the business for that sort of thing. I’m certainly not going to lose sleep if we don’t get any sort of award, not just that one, any award. I don’t think we deserve to have this or that necessarily. With what we do, whatever comes of it is great. Whatever doesn’t come of it is great, too.”
Earlier Bruce Dickinson slammed the community saying:
“It’s an utter and complete load of bollocks”.
It is run by a bunch of sanctimonious bloody Americans who wouldn’t know rock and roll if it hit them in the face.”
“I’m really happy we’re not there and I would never want to be there,”
“If we’re ever inducted, I will refuse — they won’t bloody be having my corpse in there.
“Rock and roll music does not belong in a mausoleum in Cleveland. It’s a living, breathing thing, and if you put it in a museum, then it’s dead. It’s worse than horrible, it’s vulgar.”
