What Does This Button Do?: An Autobiography Reviews

  • Twerking To Beethoven
    Plenty of funny anecdotes never made the cut, simply because they didn’t advance the narrative. Somewhere there is a book of anecdotes, but it’s not a coherent tale.Had I chosen to include airships, wives, divorces, children and entrepreneurial activities this would have been approaching 8...

    Rock biographies can be patchy things, often written quickly for the hard-core fanbase and released just before Christmas as a cynical cash-in. For rock autobiographies this counts double, with the added risk that the author is a neanderthal with just enough writing skill to avoid a ghost writer, bu...

    Bruce Dickinson's autobiography doesn't tell your usual rock'n'roll story. There's little in the way of hedonism here, Bruce is a man who'd rather learn how to fence, pilot a jumbo jet or write a best selling novel in his spare time. As the lead singer of best selling heavy metal band Iron Maiden he...

    Shame he dies in the end....

    Bruce is a great bloke. This book does not detract from that. It's not that scintillating a read, though. The odd chortle or revelation (see what I did?) here and there but not essential reading by any means. I'm a huge fan of Bruce so I did enjoy it but would be hard pushed to recommend it to anyon...

    The story of a remarkable and talented human being. I have been an Iron Maiden fan for over thirty years and I have always enjoyed hearing interviews with Mr. Dickinson. Bruce Dickinson's tale takes you from his early childhood being raised by his grandparents and onto Private School, College, his t...

    I eagerly anticipated this, but in the end was a little disappointed. Dickinson is a fine writer, having published a couple of novels earlier in his career as well as being responsible for some of the finest lyrics in metal history, and this is a rare rock autobiography that is self-written and just...
  • Pericles
    This is NOT your typical rock star biography. This is NOT a story about a talented musician who almost lost everything to drugs and sex. You will not find love affairs, undesired children or the discovery of love. Nor is it the story of the troubled band who disbanded and then got back together agai...

    Fascinating anecdotes, nicely written and performed. Hey, I'm a fan.However, for my taste, the book is a little too "clean" and light on details. I know a lot about the stories Bruce tells to his buddies at a birthday party, but I don't really feel I _know_ Bruce now....
