CLIVE BURR is op 12 maart in zijn slaap overleden. Hij leed al vele jaren aan Multiple Sclerose. Burr was in 1979 tot de band toegetreden en drumde op de eerste drie IRON MAIDEN-albums ‘Iron Maiden’ (1980), ‘Killers’ (1981) en ‘The Number Of The Beast’ (1982).
Steve Harris: “This is terribly sad news. Clive was a very old friend of all of us. He was a wonderful person and an amazing drummer who made a valuable contribution to Maiden in the early days when we were starting out. This is a sad day for everyone in the band and those around him and our thoughts and condolences are with his partner Mimi and family at this time.”
Bruce Dickinson: “I first met Clive when he was leaving Samson and joining Iron Maiden. He was a great guy and a man who really lived his life to the full. Even during the darkest days of his M.S., Clive never lost his sense of humour or irreverence. This is a terribly sad day and all our thoughts are with Mimi and the family.”
