BLACK SABBATH, DEEP PURPLE, IRON MAIDEN Stars Turn Up For CLIVE BURR Benefit Event - Dec. 2, 2005
On Tuesday night (Nov. 29) at the Hard Rock Cafe in London a special evening took place for former IRON MAIDEN drummer Clive Burr.
At this specially organized event, Clive Burr's drum kit from the Beast on The Road tour was given to the Hard Rock Cafe to accompany other famous artifacts from rock history such as Jimi Hendrix, Pete Townsend, B.B. King and Eric Clapton's guitars, Mitch Mitchell's drum kit and clothing worn by THE BEATLES, Jim Morrison and THE WHO.
In return the Hard Rock Cafe kindly donated a check for £10,000 to Clive Burr to further help him with his treatment and care (Clive is suffering from multiple sclerosis).
IRON MAIDEN members Bruce Dickinson, Adrian Smith and Janick Gers came down for the presentation and Bruce said a few words to pay tribute to Clive before the check was given to Clive by Hard Rock Cafe owner Don Bernstein.
Many famous faces turned up for the occasion including Tony Iommi (BLACK SABBATH), Ian Paice (DEEP PURPLE), Bernie Torme (GILLAN, OZZY OSBOURNE), THE FUN LOVING CRIMINALS, members of CRADLE OF FILTH, GIRLSCHOOL and JOHNNY PANIC and the Hard Rock Cafe kept the free bar running all night to make it a great occasion for Clive, his partner Mimi and the many friends who attended.
