A nice gesture by the band towards their ex-singer.

From Blabbermouth:

IRON MAIDEN To Cover Remaining Cost Of PAUL DI'ANNO's Surgeries And Treatment

June 20, 2022

Ex-IRON MAIDEN singer Paul Di'Anno, who is currently in Croatia awaiting three major surgeries on his knees, will have the remaining costs of his operations and treatment funded by his former bandmates.

Earlier today (Monday, June 20), Kastro Pergjoni, operations director of the Cart & Horses pub in Stratford, London, England where IRON MAIDEN made its live debut in 1976, who recently raised thousands of dollars so Di'Anno can undergo his long-delayed knee surgery, took to the Cart & Horses Facebook page to share the following message: "I am very excited to announce that the IRON MAIDEN team have kindly agreed to cover the remaining cost of Paul Di'Anno's operation. Not only are IRON MAIDEN the best band on this planet, they are kind-hearted and supported by an amazing team. As a result of this fantastic news, I will be closing the fundraising on the 21st June 2022.

I've always been a fan of the guy,it's a miracle though that he's still even alive given how hard he's lived with all the chemicals and dope he's put through his body over the decades.Cool of the Maiden-camp to help out...

 

My personal faves from Paul:

 

IRON MAIDEN  S/T (1980)

IRON MAIDEN - KILLERS  (1981)

BATTLEZONE - FIGHTING BACK  (1986)

BATTLEZONE - CHILDREN OF MADNESS  (1987)

KILLERS - MURDER ONE   (1992)

KILLERS - MENACE TO SOCIETY   (1994)

DI'ANNO - NOMAD  (2000)

Weird thing is 11 years ago he was actually sentenced to 9 months in prison due to £45,000 benefit fraud because he claimed to be disabled but went out touring and got caught. I wonder if this affects his ability to get benefits now?

Wouldn't wish this on anyone though.
