Iron Maiden’s Bruce Dickinson dismissed the hypothetical idea of the band continuing on without any of its current members.

At a spoken-word show in Bucharest, Romania, Dickinson was answering fan questions in support of his 2017 memoir, What Does This Button Do? 

When someone inquired about the future of the band after the current lineup is no longer around, Dickinson said, “There’s always hope.

There’ll be a whole new load of Iron [Maiden] members,” he continued. “We won’t even have fucking holograms, you know what I mean? You can actually have real Iron Maiden members that kind of look like us but are not us. … That’s good! I like that! It’s not a bad idea. Then we can just sit back and [receive] royalties and do no work. Good idea!”

However, he clarified, “It’ll never happen, because we’re never going to fucking retire.”
