All kinds of crazy plans

Bruce Dickinson is currently doing a series of spoken word Q&A appearances promoting his autobiography. During his September 8 gig at DR Koncerthuset in Copenhagen he was asked about his relationship with Jon Lord:

Jon Lord was a wonderful gentleman, and we were close friends. And he sadly died ofโ€ฆ He had pancreatic cancer, but he survived for a year and a half โ€” much against what everybody had said would happen. And actually, at the end, he didn’t die of pancreatic cancer โ€” he died, unfortunately, of some terrible blood collapse that happened with him, possibly as a result of treatment. But we had all kinds of crazy plans, including me going out on tour with him, singing Deep Purple songs with an orchestra, which he was planning to do; that was one of the things we were planning to do. But it all got interrupted and canceled, and [it was] obviously very sad. He was a wonderful man.

For those of you who are into Maiden, you can see his talk on youtube, but in 3 parts and with 40+ minutes total, we’ll spare the rest.

Thanks to Blabbermouth for the info.
