Tattooed Millionaire is the first solo album by Iron Maiden vocalist Bruce Dickinson, released in 1990. The album project began when Dickinson was asked to record a song for A Nightmare on Elm Street 5: The Dream Child, and so wrote "Bring Your Daughter… to the Slaughter". Collaborating with future Iron Maiden guitarist Janick Gers, Dickinson began creating a solo album which was fundamentally different from his works with Iron Maiden, with a hard rock sound that is less progressive. "Bring your Daughter…" wasn't included on the original release, as Iron Maiden planned to record an alternate version for their 1990 album No Prayer for the Dying, which went on to become the band's only number one single on the UK Singles Chart to date…

Before Iron Maiden, he was the singer in a similar band called Samson from 1979 until he joined Iron Maiden two years later in 1981.Dickinson quit Iron Maiden in 1993 in order to pursue his solo career and was replaced by Blaze Bayley, who had previously been the lead singer of the metal band Wolfsbane. Dickinson's solo work ranges from the Alternative Rock sound of 1996's Skunkworks, to the all out Metal style of Accident of Birth. Dickinson was releasing an artistic energy he felt was suppressed by Iron Maiden's strict progressive metal format, which he claimed could not accommodate emotional reflection as evidenced in the lyrics of 'Tears of the Dragon.'…..
Bruce Dickinson is an English musician. He is best known as the lead singer of the heavy metal band Iron Maiden and is renowned for his wide-ranging operatic vocal style and energetic stage presence. During his first tenure in the band, they issued a series of US and UK platinum and gold albums in the 1980s, resulting in Dickinson gaining worldwide fame, and becoming one of the most acclaimed heavy metal vocalists of all time. Accident of Birth is a heavy metal album released in 1997 by Bruce Dickinson. This is the second album made in collaboration with guitarist/producer Roy Z. In 2005, Accident of Birth was ranked number 338 in Rock Hard magazine's book of The 500 Greatest Rock & Metal Albums of All Time.
Samson was a very cool New Wave of British Heavy Metal (NWOBHM) band that was active from 1977 to 1984, though there were several reunions after that. Iron Maiden rendered Samson a footnote, as mega-vocalist Bruce Dickinson did time with the band prior to hooking up with Eddie’s crew. Early Iron Maiden drummer Clive Burr was in Samson for a bit, too. The 1986 compilation Head Tactics was an effort to profit from Dickinson’s superstar status, which makes sense. It’s a good album and a must have for NWOBHM fans.
