Encyclopedia > Clive Burr

Clive Burr (b. March 8, 1957) was the [drummer]] in the British heavy metal band Iron Maiden. He'd previously played in the band Samson. He joined Iron Maiden in 1979 (an acquaintance of Dennis Stratton) and played on their first three records: Iron Maiden, Killers and their best selling release The Number of the Beast. He left the band in 1982 due to the tour schedule and personal problems. He was replaced by the band's current drummer, Nicko McBrain. Clive's only songwriting credits were that he co-wrote two of the songs on The Number of the Beast, Gangland and Total Eclipse. None of Maiden's previous drummers contributed to songwriting, and only once, for the Dance of Death album did Nicko McBrain write a song for the band.

There has been many debates as to who is the better drummer Clive or his replacement Nicko McBain. The debate is redundant as both are two different drummers with different approaches to Iron Maiden's music. Thought it has been noted that when Iron Maiden played live with Clive Burr they were noticeably tighter. Many cite Maiden Japan - their live EP recorded in Japan, as an example and compare it's overall sound to their Live after Death Album.
