Teamrock reported that Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson surprised patrons at a rock club in Whales when he showed up to serve pints of beer behind the bar.

Dickenson visited Fuel Rock Club to check out its latest addition to the venue's draft ales that named after the band itself -- Iron Maiden's new Trooper Red N' Black Beer.

According to Teamrock, Fuel owner Rob Toogood told Wales Online, "Dickenson stayed for most of the night just mingling, chatting, and posing for pics." When Toogood asked Dickinson if he wanted an area to be cornered off for him, Dickinson reportedly said "Who for? I'm not Kim Kardashian!".

This type of thing never happens in Iowa. We live in the middle of the country surrounded by corn. Besides Slipknot, not too many rock stars are hanging out in the Hawkeye State.

But I do remember a cool story that happened about fifteen years ago. Pantera played a huge show at The Five Season's Center in Cedar Rapids. After the show, the entire band went to Third Street Live for an impromptu after-show party. Third Street was the big rock club back in the day and has since closed.

My friend Don worked at Third Street Live. During the meet and greet, he invited the band down to the club for a beer. We never thought they would show up, but they did. Not only did they show up, they brought their entire crew. The owner locked the doors and the party went all night. The band eventually stumbled out of the club around 7 a.m. the next morning.

I hope to try this new "Iron Maiden beer" in the near future. If it's anything like their music, I'm sure I'll love it. I'll pick up a six pack and give you my review on The KRNA Morning Show later this week!
