“A Scottish aid worker has revealed how he helped smuggle one of heavy metal music’s biggest stars into Sarajevo for a string of morale-boosting concerts at the height of the Bosnian war. Bruce Dickinson, the frontman of Iron Maiden, played a series of intimate shows in the city at a time when it was under siege from Serbian artillery and snipers.

For years, the singer’s shows have been a footnote in heavy metal lore, but as a new documentary charts the unlikely story in detail for the first time, a former United Nations worker from Dumfries and Galloway has revealed how he played a crucial role in making the concerts possible.” (The Scotsman)
