That's all from Bruce
Do you have days when you are happy to be doing absolutely nothing?
What was the last book you really enjoyed reading?
Scott McLennan asks:
Now that you’ve completed What Does This Button Do?, are there any plans to write sequels to The Adventures of Lord Iffy Boatrace and The Missionary Position: The Further Adventures of Lord Iffy Boatrace?
What is your favourite impression to do?
I’m intrigued by the phrase “all round polymath” - are there polymaths who aren’t “all round”?
That question is for the Guardian, not Bruce, although I suppose he can answer it if he wants.
'I could tell you about my heroin addiction – but it doesn't exist'
Really looking forward to the book. A review by Classic Rock suggests that you’ve not touched on some important/interesting career moments in much or any detail. Did you make that decision out of self preservation, and did you speak to Steve/Rod about what could and couldn’t be included, Maiden-wise?
'In the film's love scene, was a skinhead trying to talk Latin - don't ask why!'
As a member of a large group of women who think you are the sexiest man alive, I have to ask you about that scene from the never-released Dope Opera film.
Did it take a lot of convincing to get you to go for it? Do you talk about it in your book? And did you find it awkward or did not not mind being naked on set at all?
Bruce, how do you deal with your fears and anxieties?
If Eternity Should Fail has the best title ever and it’s based on a Dr Strange comic. Did you actually read comic books as a child and if so what were your favourites?
Out of Steve, Adrian and Dave who’s bottom looked the best in spandex?
'An X Factor for rock and metal would make me want to eat my own leg'
What are your views on putting together an X Factor for rock and metal? Good idea?
Can you talk about Nicko McBrain’s conversion to Christianity. How has that affected you personally and the band?
Do you have plans to release your solo album soon?
Captain Dickinson, will you kindly publish all of your aviation anecdotes in a sequel book?
Are you ever going to level with us about the exact nature of your relationship with [Maiden member] Janick Gers? And no harm meant to you, as this is an age where the LGBTQ community worldwide needs to be represented by it’s true constituents, in all walks of life and in all countries.
If you’re gonna die, die with your boots on / If you’re gonna try well stick around / Gonna cry, just move along / Gonna die, you’re gonna die.
Do you still stand by that statement?
Hi Bruce, if you had to invite musicians to form a metal supergroup, who would you like to play with?
'I cut my hair because I was too old to look like Jesus any more'
How did you feel when you decided to cut your hair years ago?
How old should my daughter be if I wish to take her to the slaughter?
Hi Bruce. Got a favourite airport approach?
Bruce, what’s your favourite Miles Davis album?
Fear of Dark has never left Iron Maiden’s repertoire since it was released. What’s your relationship with this song?
Will there ever be a boy born who can swim faster than a shark?
Are there any Iron Maiden tour plans for 2018, or for a new album?
Eoghan Lyng asks:
What was your initial reaction to the nickname “The Air Raid Siren”?
bubsy styles asks:
What’s your favourite plane?
Steve ForTheDeaf asks:
Which of the live albums Maiden have put out is the definitive set?

Bruce Dickinson webchat – post your questions now
Where to start with Iron Maiden’s Bruce Dickinson? Two lengthy stints as frontman in the legendary metal band would be enough for most CVs, but Dickinson is also an airline captain, radio presenter, scriptwriter, fencer and beer brewer among other things.
It means his new autobiography What Does This Button Do? (not the most confidence-instilling title for an airline captain to trade under, admittedly) is sure to be packed with fascinating tales, covering everything from a childhood spent on the move to his recent battle with cancer.
He will be taking on his latest challenge on Tuesday 17 October at 12.30pm – visiting the Guardian office to answer your questions. Post them in the comment section below and we’ll fire them at the rock legend for your pleasure.
