    Iron Maiden have got together from around the world and re-arranged their personal schedules to help ex-drummer and band mate Clive Burr.

    The band were to have taken a creative break following the huge worldwide success of their last album and Brave New World tour until preparation of their next studio album, due for release in 2003.

    However, they unanimously decided to break their 12 month sabbatical whenthey heard news of Clive Burr's ill health.

    Clive is suffering from multiple sclerosis - a disease of unknown cause. The disorder is causing him intermittent numbness and can affect his balance.Some days are better than others. At present there is no known cure for MS,although he is helping test new drugs in the hope that his body response may contribute to a cure.

    Clive joined the band at the very end of December 1979 and played on the first three albums, 'Iron Maiden', 'Killers' and 'Number of the Beast', and toured extensively with the band over this groundbreaking period before leaving in early 1983.

    "We were gutted to hear of Clive's condition" said founding Iron Maiden member Steve Harris. "It must be a very scary prospect for him to face. It seemed natural that we should try and help Clive by trying to improve his future quality of life. We are setting up a special trust, The Clive Burr MS Trust Fund, and are keen to help him as much as we possibly can"
    As part of that fund raising attempts the band will be performing two special benefit gigs at London's Brixton Academy on Wednesday 20th and Thursday 21st March 2002. These will be the only shows that the band will play anywhere in the world in 2002 which will be a must for any Iron Maiden fans. All profits from the two shows will go to the Clive Burr MS Trust Fund. Most of those involved in the shows, including all band members, their management, agency and promoters, are supplying their services for nothing to maximise the fund. All merchandising profits will also be donated to the fund.
    Says Maiden manager Rod Smallwood of Sanctuary Management, "Maiden has always been a family and, even after all these years, we still consider Clive to be part of that family and as such we feel we should help him in any way possible. We are sure the fans will agree and add their support to this."

    Tickets for this special fund raising event cost 25:00 and will available to Iron Maiden fan club members before going on sale to the public on Friday 25th January.
    Further information can be found on the bands website.

    That's terrible. I love Nicko but Clive was a lot more bad-ass. King of the metal snare fill.
