Derek Riggs to resurrect Paul Di’Anno in new unique package

Legendary artist Derek Riggs, who drew Eddie holding the chopped-off head Paul Di’Anno on the Venezuelan version of the Maiden Japan EP, is to raise the former Iron Maiden singer from the dead and give him the chance of a new life on two feet in a unique package.

Paul Di’Anno is currently in Croatia awaiting three major surgeries on his knees, and although Iron Maiden has funded the remaining costs of the treatment, the Metal community continues to rally around Di’Anno to support his recovery and rehabilitation.
