R.I.P. Clive Burr

Former drummer of Iron Maiden, Clive Burr passed away a couple of days ago. 
(Reuters) - Former Iron Maiden drummer Clive Burr, who played on the British heavy metal band's landmark first three albums, has died at the age of 56, the group said on Wednesday.

Burr, who had been suffering from multiple sclerosis, died "peacefully in his sleep at home" in London on Tuesday and had been in poor health for several years, the band said in a statement posted on their website.

"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," Iron Maiden founder and bassist Steve Harris said in a statement.

And since today is the Ides of March, here is a tribute to Mr. Burr.
