Pilot, entrepreneur and IRON MAIDEN frontman Bruce Dickinson will be the keynote speaker at India's "Blog Now, Live Forever" (BNLF) — which bills itself as "the most disruptive conference on blogging" – in October. The two-day event is being organized by blogging community IndiBlogger and will be held at the Lalit Hotel in Mumbai.
Dickinson will deliver his speech on October 31, the first day of the conference.
This is the first conference hosted by IndiBlogger, which was founded in 2007.
Bruce is expected to speak on his projects, tying it in with business start-up, entrepreneurship and business creativity. In addition, he will talk about the parallels between his music and business careers. He will also deliver team-building experiences focused around his flight simulator.
Bruce left IRON MAIDEN in 1993 in order to pursue a solo career, his passion for fencing and an interest in becoming a pilot. Bruce rejoined the band in 1999 and has gone on to release four albums; despite this, he hasn't stopped flying Boeing 757s.
Dickinson was recently given the all-clear after being diagnosed with a tumor on his tongue late last year.
IRON MAIDEN's new double album, "The Book Of Souls", will be released on September 4, 2015 through BMG in the U.S.A. (Parlophone Records in the rest of world).
