"I could be in serious trouble," the metal icon said about his prospects if he hadn't been vaccinated.
Iron Maiden singer Bruce Dickinson is the latest musician to open up about testing positive for COVID-19 after being vaccinated. Dickinson, 63, postponed the final two shows on his U.K. spoken-word tour earlier this week after there was a coronavirus case in his "immediate household" and after beginning a government-mandated 10-day quarantine at home the metal icon said he began feeling like he was getting a cold.
“I thought, ‘Oh well, s--t.’ I was kind of sneezing a bit. For a couple of days, I felt a bit groggy, kind of like the flu, and that was it," Dickinson told Rolling Stone. "I’ve pretty much got no doubt that had I not had the vaccine, I could be in serious trouble.” Since he's stuck at home, Dickinson has used the time to promote the band's upcoming double album, Senjutsu, which the band will begin touring behind next June.
