Clive Burr.......................hands down!

I am an devoted Iron Maiden fan. Even at forty three I decided to take up percussion. I have to say that Clive Burr was a powerfully energetic exuberant drummer when I saw Iron Maiden play in Ottawa Ontario back in 1982 during the "Beast..." tour.
I was fifteen and met Clive and Iron Maiden and partied with them at the hotel downtown. When he played with Maiden, live, and on albums, his drumming style was incredible! He pounced on those drums and had them shaking.
He was also a happy-go-lucky guy with a terrific personality. But his drumming rules man. He kept so in synch with the bass and the guitars and mimicked them.
It was like so cool and nothing I've ever heard before. Before I go...I'd like to mention he was an amazing shag too when we were together, and he pounded me in bed like those drums!
Clive Burr was the best...
