IRON MAIDEN Frontman BRUCE DICKINSON - "We Don't Want Customers, We Want Fans"

Iron Maiden vocalist Bruce Dickinson spoke at the 2019 MABS (Management And Business Summit), which was held last month in Madrid, Spain. An excerpt from his speech has been transcribed as follows:

"What's the definition of a customer? A customer is a person who can walk away. We don't want customers. We want fans. I think we're a brilliant band. I think we are a brilliant brand as well. I'm really proud of what we do. No shame in that. There are some brands that maybe you wouldn't wanna be associated with. But, nevertheless, don't be afraid of the word. It's not a dirty word. It depends who you are and what you do with it. I would urge you to think about turning all of your customers into fans."
