"There is a large number of airplane pilots. But not many who can say 'Yeah, I was a headliner at Rock In Rio'. All the fantastic things that happen in your life are those that are happening for the first time. Being part of a band like Iron Maiden springs an endless series of new things for you, and just when you think you've seen it all in life, you are put on a stage at Rock in Rio and there’s half a million people there. And then you realize how fantastic that is".
