Iron Maiden's new album includes song inspired by Robin Williams


Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson has revealed that one of the songs of band's new album "The Book Of Souls" pays tribute to late actor Robin Williams.

Bruce said: "My favorite song is one I didn't write. It's 'Tears Of A Clown', which talks about Robin Williams. I ask myself how could he be so depressed when he always seemed to be so happy."

The song was written by guitarist Adrian Smith and bassist Steve Harris.

Robin Williams committed suicide on August 11, 2014 after a long history of depression and health issues.
