Di’Anno drops Charlotte clip

Paul Di’Anno has released a clip from his upcoming live DVD, featuring a performance of Charlotte The Harlot – without most of the lyrics.

The frontman delivers rather than sings the Iron Maiden classic, pausing halfway through to ask the crowd: “Do you know the words to this?”

Di’Anno recently confirmed he’d ditched plans to retire after successful leg surgery meant he was able to keep performing. He said: “I spoke to the wife and she said, ‘Oh, my God – if you stay home for two months I’ll probably murder you.’ So I decided in the end, ‘Fuck it.’”

His live release The Beast Arises, shot in Poland earlier this year, is released on October 6 via Metal Mind Productions on DVD, CD and double-vinyl.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
