It’s really sad to hear that the former Iron Maiden drummer, Clive Burr would no more been seen live. On Tuesday, Clive died in a sleep. Clive Burr, 56 was one of the best drummers in the world. He has battled in numbers of sclerosis.
Clive was born in March 8th 1957 at East Ham, London. Before joining Iron Maiden, he was a song writer as well as a musician for the band called Samson. For Iron Maiden, he played 3 records that are Iron Maiden, Killer, and The Number Of Beast.
In the year 1994, he retired from playing music because of the manifold sclerosis diagnosis. Even after quitting for playing music, he never quit Iron Maiden family. Bruce Dickinson, lead singer for Iron Maiden said “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.”
We all share our compassion for him.
