Music Industry News - as it happens
Source: Mi2N - June 20, 2002

Iron Maiden says they've already raised close to a quarter of a million pounds sterling for the Clive Burr MS Trust. The money came from, "three fantastic sell out nights at London's Brixton Academy; record breaking merchandising sales and a phenomenal chart breaking success with the single 'Run To The Hills'," and EMI Records and Zomba Music Publishers also donated their profits from their side of the single.

The group says last year Clive Burr revealed he was suffering multiple sclerosis (MS) and the band consequently performed the three special shows in London to an audience of fans from, "the four corners of the world". Profits went into The Clive Burr Multiple Sclerosis Trust which that will not only help Clive and MS sufferers, but will also, "contribute to vital research into the debilitating disease which affects so many people".

To raise more funds, Iron Maiden has decided to sell exclusive memorabilia. Nicko McBrain is donating his monster full performance drum kit, for guitarists, there's a Fender Strat'Iron Maiden' signature series guitar signed by all members of the band including ex-drummer Clive Burr, and an eight-foot 'Eddie' head and shoulders and two arms which were part of the stage set where Eddie emerged from a huge coffin similar to the 'No Prayer' album cover, will also be available for anyone with enough space to handle it ; )

The band has also unearthed rare 'Monsters Of Rock' posters from their 1988 headlining Monsters of Rock shows in France, Italy and Spain, as well as a very rare 1985 'Powerslave Tour' poster for their sell-out shows at Radio City Hall in New York.

And a whole bunch of other stuff will go online at noon (12 pm GMT) on June 28 in an eBay auction that'll run for 10 days. For more info on the auction and items, including pix, go to http://www.ironmaiden.com.
