Iron Maiden fund-raiser for ex-drummer Clive Burr
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
