To celebrate my 30 years as a singer next year, Blaze Bayley (WOLFSBANE, ex-IRON MAIDEN) will release a booklet with career information, albums, personal comments and stories, tour dates and pictures. Blaze says: “I will add fan pictures to the booklet as YOU have made it possible for me to keep going for 30 years!
“You can send your favorite picture with Blaze to email@example.com (only pictures you own rights to with email subject ‘Booklet fanpicture’). Around 80 pictures will be picked to be added to the booklet.”
Blaze released a collaborative acoustic EP with Belgium-based classical guitarist Thomas Zwijsen, “Russian Holiday” on February 5. The effort features four re-arranged songs from previous albums and one brand new song written by Bayley and Zwijsen.
“Russian Holiday” includes a “full classical guitar arrangement” of theIRON MAIDEN song “Sign Of The Cross”, which the duo performed on their 2012 U.K. acoustic tour.
Bayley‘s latest studio album, “The King Of Metal”, was released in March 2012. The CD was recorded at Fear Studio in Ravenna, Italy.
The 49-year-old Bayley, who was born in Birmingham, was the original frontman in WOLFSBANE, but left in 1994 to replace Bruce Dickinson as the lead singer of IRON MAIDEN.
