Career

Bayley was originally lead vocalist of Tamworth rock band, Wolfsbane. When Bruce Dickinson departed Iron Maiden in 1993, Bayley was chosen as his replacement in 1994. After a bad motorcycle accident, caused by losing control and clipping his knee on a catseye in the road, which put him out of action for a year, his first album with Maiden was The X Factor, released in 1995. Bayley went on to tour with the band in support of the album. In 1998 – still with Iron Maiden – he recorded the album Virtual XI.

The two Iron Maiden albums released during Bayley's time in the band did not chart as well as that to which the band were accustomed. The X Factor achieved 8th in the UK charts, and Virtual XI hit only 16th putting it as the lowest Iron Maiden studio album since Killers, which achieved 12th place in the UK charts. Some of this comparative commercial failure could be attributed to the tours being cut short due to Bayley's frequent sickness, and the more progressive, dark tone of the albums produced during his tenure.

In February 1999, when Iron Maiden announced that vocalist Bruce Dickinson was returning to the band, Bayley departed. He remains the longest tenured member of the group who is not a current member. The following year, Bayley released his first album with his new band, Blaze. With this band he has so far created three studio albums, Silicon Messiah (2000), Tenth Dimension (2002), and Blood & Belief (2004), and one live album, As Live as It Gets (2003), respectively.

Singing style

It has been claimed that one of the reasons for Bayley's lukewarm reception from Iron Maiden fans was that he possessed a vocal range far lower than either of his predecessors. This made it difficult for Blaze to sing certain songs in the key in which they were originally written and Iron Maiden were used to playing them. Run to the Hills, one of Iron Maiden's more popular tracks was omitted from live shows as a result of this. Run to the Hills is Iron Maidens sixth single and first single from Iron Maidens 1982 album The Number of the Beast. ...


Some critics have said that Bayley's voice had melody and power which was ideal for the darker tone of his début Maiden album.


On his albums with Blaze, Bayley's voice was noted for its improvement, which could be due, in part, of the absence of Bayley's former respiratory allergy that caused him trouble during live performances. For the play, see Hay Fever. ...
