FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Bruce Dickinson's Tattooed Millionaire' Scheduled For Reissue By Columbia/Legacy On September 10th

This 1990 Solo Debut By Legendary Iron Maiden Vocalist Includes Five Bonus Tracks

In 1990, vocalist Bruce Dickinson had nothing left to prove. He'd spent eight years fronting the legendary British heavy metal quintet Iron Maiden; a band that set a standard of quality for the genre that has never been equaled or surpassed.

But Dickinson was restless. He's a tireless man who likes to keep busy both creatively and physically. Dickinson decided to branch out, and he released his debut solo album, Tattooed Millionaire, on Columbia Records in 1990. Now, it is being reissued in a remastered, expanded edition by Columbia Records/Legacy Recordings on September 10, 2002. The five bonus tracks -- four studio and one live -- follow the original running order of "Son Of A Gun," "Tattooed Millionaire," "Born In '58," "Hell On Wheels," "Gypsy Road," "Dive! Dive! Dive!" the Mott The Hoople cover "All The Young Dudes," "Lickin' The Gun," "Zulu Lulu" and "No Lies."

Three of the five bonus tracks are covers. The bonus tracks are:

* Arthur Brown's "Spirit of Joy" -- U.K. B-side of the "Tears of the Dragon" single (from Dickinson's 1994 album 'Balls to Picasso')
* Dickinson original "Darkness Be My Friend" -- U.K. B-side of the "All the Young Dudes" single
* AC/DC's "Sin City" -- U.K. B-side of the "All the Young Dudes" single
* Dickinson original "Winds of Change" - U.K. B-side of the "Tattooed Millionaire" single
* Samson's "Riding With the Angels" recorded live at the London Astoria in 1990 -- U.K. B-side of the "Dive! Dive! Dive!" single

Brown -- known as The Crazy World of Arthur Brown on his signature hit "Fire" -- is a favorite of Dickinson. Samson, of course, was Dickinson's pre-Iron Maiden band. "Riding With the Angels" was actually written and first recorded by former Argent guitarist Russ Ballard, who had more success as a songwriter and producer than as a solo artist.

Tattooed Millionaire marked a transitional phase in Dickinson's career. Fans who expected an Iron Maiden-style heavy metal album were in for a surprise. Instead, the album was more of a straightforward hard-rock record that reflected Dickinson's roots and influences.

Dickinson recruited three little known musicians for his solo band. Guitarist Janick Gers had played with Ian Gillan (which certainly pleased Deep Purple fanatic Dickinson), and he went on to replace Adrian Smith in Iron Maiden. Bass guitarist Andy Carr was a member of 3 Rivers. Drummer Fabio Del Rio was a member of Jagged Edge.

The entire album is hard rock, but the songs reflected Dickinson's variety of moods. "Son Of A Gun" and "No Lies" are dramatic, "Born in '58" is openly autobiographical, "Dive! Dive! Dive!" and "Zulu Lulu" illustrate his wickedly playful sense of humor through clever double entendres and the faithful take on "All The Young Dudes" is a reverential salute to the rock 'n' roll of his youth. The title cut "Tattooed Millionaire" was fluidly catchy -- especially the chorus -- and it became a hit.

Dickinson decided to take Tattooed Millionaire on the road. Replacing Del Rio on drums for the concert trek was Dickie Fliszar. To broaden his set, in addition to incorporating some of the bonus tracks included on this reissue, he also inserted "Bring Your Daughter ... To The Slaughter" -- the theme of A Nightmare On Elm Street 5: The Dream Child -- which Iron Maiden then re-recorded for No Prayer For The Dying. The reward was a # 1 single in England!

It turned out that Dickinson felt he was growing increasingly limited musically in Iron Maiden, and he left the band in 1993. He released a string of solo albums and toured the world until he and Smith re-joined the band in 1999.

Dickinson headlined the Wacken Open Air Festival in Germany on August 2, 2002; the largest heavy metal festival in the world. For more information on Bruce Dickinson, visit his official web site: www.screamforme.com.
