La Doncella de Hierro con Clive Burr (8 de Marzo, 1957 – 12 de Marzo, 2013)

Clive Burr, ex baterista de Iron Maiden, falleció anoche a causa de la esclerosis múltiple que sufría desde años atrás.

Responsable de las baquetas en los clásicos LP’s ‘Iron Maiden’, ‘Killers’ y ‘The Number of The Beast’,  había sido miembro de Samson, donde también militó Bruce Dickinson.

Desde su website, los miembros de la Doncella comunicaron la noticia:

FORMER IRON MAIDEN DRUMMER CLIVE BURR PASSES AWAY

We are deeply saddened to report that Clive Burr passed away last night. He had suffered poor health for many years after being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis and died peacefully in his sleep at home. 

Steve Harris said “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 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”

As Maiden fans all know, Clive joined Maiden in 1979 and performed on the first three albums Iron Maiden (1980), Killers (1981) and The Number Of The Beast (1982).
Prior to that he was a member of Samson, the band Bruce fronted before he too joined Maiden.

Miembros de Slayer, Megadeth, Guns N’ Roses, Judas Priest y otros mostraron sus condolencias. Nosotros lo recordamos con el mítico concierto en Hammersmith Odeon de 1982.

Up the irons!
