When you think of Iron Maiden, you probably don’t think of tribute songs for fallen celebrities. Well, think again, because Iron Maiden recently put out a new tune that is dedicated to the late, great comedian, Robin Williams.
The singer (Dickinson) said: “My favorite song is one I didn’t write. It’s ‘Tears of a Clown,’ which talks about Robin Williams. I ask myself how could he be so depressed when he always seemed to be so happy.”
The new song is actually written by guitarist, Adrian Smith, and bassist, Steve Harris. Iron Maiden’s new album, “The Book of Souls”, is set to release on September 4th, and will be the band’s first ever double album. You can listen to the band’s debut single, “Speed of Light,” and read the rest of the article at Ultimate Guitar.
