Default Ex Iron Maiden frontman facing jail

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/m...ic-videos.html

The former lead singer of iconic rock band Iron Maiden was facing jail after he was exposed as a benefit cheat by posting his music videos - on YouTube.

Bet he regrets selling his royalties to Steve Harris- short turn gain, long term pain..

Di'anno hasn't aged well. Not a wise move posting your mug on You tube and then claiming benefits.

I did like Paul's two albums fronting Maiden - but he's a victim of his own making

What I want to know is why?

As with everyone who cheats the benefits system, you will get caught...

And you are right, he is a victim of his own making, hell he went on the record and said that he "quit Iron Maiden because they are boring!" - if that is so, why does he sing Iron Maiden songs??

Well, I hope he will come out of this a new and better man.

I like the Paul Di'Anno who used to be the Iron Maiden lead singer. Then aliens abducted him and unleashed this pathetic copy all around the world...

Don't like to necro threads but....

I always liked the punk aspect of Maiden.

Found this on youtube:

I do hope that fat f*cker is getting his anal passage ruined by a fatter f*cker whilst he's on his tour of UK jails.

Fast forwards to 2mins 14seconds.... C***.
