PAUL DI'ANNO: Quality Cleveland Footage

A two-camera video mix of former IRON MAIDEN singer Paul Di'Anno's December 24, 2010 performance at Agora in Cleveland, Ohio can be viewed below (recorded, produced and edited by Ken Kitt for Metal Fanzine, Vidz -R- Us).

The final concert of Paul Di'Anno's current U.S. tour — which is scheduled to take place tonight (Sunday, January 9) at The Cheyenne Saloon in Las Vegas, Nevada — will be broadcast live on www.hardrockradiolive.com starting at 9:00 p.m. PST.

A slideshow of images from Paul Di'Anno's January 5, 2011 concert at the Key Club in Hollywood, California can be found at this location (all pictures by Kevin Estrada).

In a recent interview with Guitar International, Di'Anno was asked if he was a candidate to replace Bruce Dickinson in IRON MAIDEN when Bruce left the band in 1993. "Not in a million years," he said. "I would've done it for three or four million dollars, with half going to UNICEF and half going to another charity.

He added, "I don't need the money. I make quite enough off my own records and the MAIDEN records.

"It's never been about the money, it's been about playing. Thanks to the fans, my children have gone off to college. I owe them everything. Thanks for supporting my drug habit, taking care of my ex-wives [Laughs], my custom Harleys and my five clubs in Brazil."

When asked if he still talks to any other members of MAIDEN, Paul replied, "Yeah, the problem is that we all live in other countries. When they came to Brazil, Stevie [Harris] and Bruce were looking for me but I was out touring. It may happen where I join them on stage someday. That's another bad press thing that says we all hate each other; it's not true. I love Steve and Dave [Murray]. Me, Steve, Dave and Clive [Burr] were like a gang and always in trouble. Anyone who slags off on MAIDEN, I'll punch them out. I quit the band because of all the ethics and politics. We all need to make money, but there's making money and exploitation of money. That my only quip that I have about MAIDEN. I'm proud to be an ex-member of IRON MAIDEN."
