Sorry JB, I find it verrrrrrrrrrry hard to believe Zak Wylde's assertion that
...[Bruce Dickinson]'s bagging America and all the troops are fighting overseas defending our way of life and freedom and fighting terrorism.
As a matter of fact I can almost see Sharron Osbourne whispering that in Zak's ear just before he said it.
And, oh look: Bruce was an active Tory in college:
He studied history at Queen Mary and Westfield College, University of London, and was active in student politics as a member of the Conservative Party.
But I'm sure Wylde's third-person hearsay that JB quotes is a more accurate picture of the man.
Oh, and it bears repeating that JB is taking the side of the folks (minus Bill Ward) who performed "War Pigs" with a Bush / Hitler image in the background.
This is shaping up to be the biggest hit to Fraters' cred since the Great Razorblogging Scandal of '05.
