image for Cliff Richard admits to a liking for the music of Iron Maiden
Heavy Rock, Holy Roller

Cliff Richard, Britain's answer to Elvis Presley admitted to his friend and long time political ally Tony Blair that he really likes the music of Iron Maiden.

The famously middle of the road singer said: 'I was given the chance to record with Iron Maiden, but I had to turn them down as I was playing Tennis with a female friend at the time, if you know what I mean. I always regretted it, I felt that my poppy vocal stylings would have helped to bring out the Europop elements within the music of the band at the time when they could have broken really big, I mean lets face it, Heavy Metal is not really that popular here, and it never really has been'.

'This was said by a man who sells concert tickets for ladies of a certain age who really think that Cliff Richard is cutting edge' said Keith Richards, the long estranged brother of the singer that love-rat Darren Day aspired to be as a youth.
