This year we lost one of heavy metal’s greatest drummers inĀ Clive Burr. The man behind the kit passed away at the age of 56, leaving Iron Maiden fans shocked and saddened by the news.

Burr is celebrated most as Iron Maiden’s former drummer, having recorded brilliant percussion pieces for Maiden’s self-titled album, ‘Killers’ and ‘The Number of the Beast.’ The character Burr was able to inject into Iron Maiden’s music is nearly unparalleled, displayed beautifully in tracks such as ‘The Number of the Beast,’ ‘Run to the Hills,’ ‘Iron Maiden’ and ‘Hallowed Be Thy Name.’ Burr was also a member of Samson, a band which also featured future Maiden vocalist Bruce Dickinson.
