Bruce Dickinson probably spends about half his life in hotels between touring with Iron Maiden and doing his spoken word tours. Which means that Dickinson spends about half his life in showers that aren’t his own, and dammit he’s making the best of that situation! Dickinson revealed in a new episode of At Home And Social With that he collects soaps from hotels he stays at and then uses ’em at home.
“I just take whatever is available. I actually have a huge collection of soaps from hotels from all over the world, and I’ve never had to buy shower gel or soap for the last 10 years.
“My girlfriend, she’s absolutely mad. She goes and buys all this stuff. I’m, like, ‘Okay, well, that’s for you. We’ve got a year’s supply there. But me, I’ll take [whatever is available].’ ‘Hmm, I wonder what this one does.’ … And then you get the funny-shaped ones as well. I’m always intrigued by horseshoe-shaped soap. It’s, like, ‘What’s that for? And where does that go?’ These are things that are given to you in hotels. You think, ‘Who thought that one up?’ Soap with little scratchy bits on it.”
Help Bruce Dickinson collect more soap by seeing Iron Maiden at one of their dates later this year.
