Clive Burr has passed...

If I want to be perfectly honest, I really hate writing these series of posts!
Writing about great musicians that I grew up with their music, and now they are dead...
And especially when I have to write for two of them in a row...
A few days ago (it is actually the previous post) was Peter Banks, and now Clive Burr.
   Clive Burr was the first drummer of Iron Maiden, and he participated in their first 3 records, (that happens to be my most beloved ones). 'Iron Maiden' 'Killers' and 'The Number of the Beast'.
He was suffering from multiple sclerosis for many years, and he died at his home on the night of 12th of March, at the age of 56.
   Because of the lengthy and expensive treatments, he was broke and in dedt. And at this point Iron Maiden showed that really good friends are there when you need them! A few years ago they announced a series of charity concerts in order to help him, and they were part of the founding of 'Clive Burr MS trust fund'.
Anyway, the point is that Clive is not among us anymore. He went to the 'musician's Paradise' and now he will be making rounds with all these great musicians that are already there.
R.I.P Clive, you will always live in our hearts...
