clive burr iron maiden drummer

Dice Metal Hammer

We’re absolutely gutted to report that former Iron Maiden drummer Clive Burr has passed away. Clive passed away peacefully in his home last night after a long battle with Multiple Sclerosis.

“This is terribly sad news,” comments Maiden bassist Steve Harris. “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 adds, “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”
