Iron Maiden star Bruce Dickinson has accused other singers of cheating fans by using Autocue technology onstage.

The frontman has criticized stars who can’t remember the words to their own songs and insists he is proud not to rely on a teleprompter to get through a gig.

He tells Britain’s The Guardian, “We still don’t have an Autocue. Yay! I never realised that people were using Autocues. What the (expletive) is that all about? People pay good money and you can’t even remember the words. The daftest one I ever saw was (Judas Priest) hit ‘Breaking the Law.’ It’s on the (expletive) Autocue. ‘Breaking the law, breaking the law/Breaking the law, breaking the law/Breaking the law, breaking the law/Breaking the law’ – guess what? – ‘breaking the law.’ It’s ludicrous.”
