Iron Maiden Win Brit Award! (Much To The Crowd’s Bemusement)

There was a downbeat vibe at the actual ceremony, however.
Classic Rock’s spy at the Brits reports that Maiden’s gong was greeted with bemusement, with the majority of the Duffy-obsessed audience failing to applaud and, indeed, not even seeming to be aware of Maiden’s existence.
Not to take away anything from Maiden’s achievement, but the muted reaction was rather disheartening…
