World-known for being the lead singer of british metal band Iron Maiden from 1994 to 1999. After that experience he built a solo careeer, recording 3 studio albums with "Blaze" and 2 with his self-titled band. He was also the lead singer of Wolfsbane from 1984 to 1994, and again from 2010. Blaze Bayley started his musical career as the lead vocalist of Tamworth heavy metal/hard rock band Wolfsbane, upon their formation in 1984. When Bruce Dickinson departed fellow English heavy metal band Iron Maiden in 1993, Bayley was chosen as his replacement in 1994 after hundreds of auditions. His departure from Wolfsbane led to their disbandment later on that year. After a bad motorcycle accident caused by losing control and clipping his knee on a catseye in the road, which put him out of action for a year, his first album with Maiden was The X Factor, released in 1995. Bayley went on to tour with the band in support of the album. Another Iron Maiden album with Bayley on vocals, Virtual XI was released in 1998.

In February 1999, when Iron Maiden announced that vocalist Bruce Dickinson was returning to the band, Bayley departed by mutual consent, and he remains on good terms with his former bandmates. After that experience he built a solo careeer, recording 3 studio albums with "Blaze" and 2 with his self-titled band.

In 2007, Wolfsbane reformed for a one-off performance, with Bayley again taking up vocal and frontman duties.
