Former IRON MAIDEN Singer PAUL DI'ANNO Is Going Through 'Hell' Waiting For Knee Surgery

Former IRON MAIDEN singer Paul Di'Anno says that he is going through "hell" waiting for a knee-replacement operation.

Di'Anno has battled a number of health issues in recent years. He reportedly underwent an operation in 2016 to remove a "rugby ball-sized abscess" on his lungs and required a knee-replacement operation on both knees after getting involved in several motorcycle accidents over the years. As a result, Di'Anno was forced to sit down while performing at his most recent shows.

Earlier today, Di'Anno responded to an interview request from Jimmy Kay from The Metal Voice, writing: "Hi mate I'm going Hell at the moment waiting on surgeries my leg keeps ulcerating so they can't put in the Bionic knee yet it's very depressing ? I'm doing my best to stay up but it's hard I have more down days than good ? But if folks as I'm ok just at home with my crows and writing new stuff for later . Not really up for interviews at this time as got a lot of clinic visits and trying to focus on this ! But thank you maybe soon ? Enjoy your vacation"

Di'Anno recorded two classic albums with IRON MAIDEN before being replaced by Bruce Dickinson. He went on to front a number of other bands, including KILLERS and BATTLEZONE, and released several solo records.

In March 2011, Di'Anno was sentenced to nine months in a U.K. prison after he falsely collected government benefits by claiming he suffered nerve damage to his back that prevented him from working.

Di'Anno completed his first North American tour in early 2010, 17 years after he was deported following a prison term for guns and drug offenses.
