It was announced today that Clive Burr, former drummer for Iron Maiden has sadly passed away. He died peacefully in his sleep last night.

Clive had suffered poor health for many years after he was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis.

“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.”

Steve Harris – Iron Maiden bassist

“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”
Bruce Dickinson – Iron Maiden vocalist
