“Clive was a MAJOR influence on so many drummers. The true scope of the “Burr Effect” can never be calculated. And he was my friend.”
Clive Ronald Burr was born in London, England on 8th March 1957.
He is most recognised for his time as the drummer for English Metal titans, Iron Maiden.
Clive’s drumming featured on the band’s first 3 albums; Iron Maiden, Killers and The Number of the Beast.
Following his time with Maiden, Clive enjoyed stints with Desperado, Elixir, Stratus and Praying Mantis, to name a few. Sadly, his career was cut short, when he was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis.
Clive unfortunately lost his battle with MS in 2013, but his legacy lives on!
