Paul Andrews (born 17 May 1959, in Chingford, Essex), better known as Paul Di'Anno, was the first prominent vocalist in the band Iron Maiden from 1978 to 1981.
In his post-Maiden career, Di'Anno has issued numerous albums over the years, as both a solo artist and as a member of such bands as Gogmagog, Di'Anno, Battlezone, Praying Mantis, and Killers.
In the mid-'90s, rumours began to surface that Di'Anno might be rejoining Maiden (after the exit of Dickinson in 1993), but the speculation proved to be false, as Maiden hooked up with former Wolfsbane vocalist Blaze Bayley, before reuniting with Dickinson in 1999.
By the dawn of the new millennium, Di'Anno was living in Brazil, still playing music and releasing his latest solo album, Living Dead, in 2006.
Paul has had several businesses outside of the music industry which have included an internet cafe and a hotel/restaurant in England, which he has now sold.
He currently lives in Salisbury, Wiltshire, England.
