Ever since IRON MAIDEN announced that Clive Burr - their drummer on the band's first three albums had passed away at the age of 56., there has been an outpouring of support and sympathy from fans and bands alike.

SLAYER's Dave Lombardo: "Sadness overcame my morning when I heard this news. His style was inspiring and the albums he recorded with IRON MAIDEN are touchstones of my music education. He played with a particular energy which bought edge and excitement to the IRON MAIDEN classics. I never got to meet him, but I wish did. The best thing for me to do right now is listen to some classic IRON MAIDEN. Up The Irons!"

MEGADETH's David Ellefson: "I was so saddened to hear of Clive Burr passing away today. He was one of my all time favorite Metal drummers. I'm thankful for his music and contributions. My condolences...."

JUDAS PRIEST's Richie Faulkner: "Not a prisoner, I'm a free man And my blood is my own now Don't care where the past was I know where I'm going"

ANTHRAX' Charlie Benante: "CLIVE BURR…one of my favourite drummers of all time. A quick story. It was 1981 I was hanging with friends in the back of the Palladium in NYC. JUDAS PRIEST and IRON MAIDEN were playing. Two taxi's pull up and Maiden get out, Steve and Clive hang and talk for a bit. Clive at the time was an up and coming drummer that I thought played with a style all his own. The drumming on Killers inspired me to kick it up a notch and I did. I spoke with him and asked him for a pair of sticks. When he was done signing things he went into the venue and 10 minutes later came out with a pair of sticks for me...I still have those sticks. He was awesome, I was bummed when Maiden let him go. RIP Clive, You have influenced so many and to this day…nobody plays like you."

TWISTED SISTER's Dee Snider: "After a long battle with MS, my dear friend Clive Burr passed away in his sleep last night. We worked together on a project called DESPERADO from 1988-1990 and shared some great times, and sadly forgotten musical moments. I'm blessed to have spoken to him a couple of days ago on his birthday, shared some memories and a few smiles. A rock n roll legend has been lost, and the world of music is less because of it. RIP Clive and "hit 'em hard" in rock n roll heaven."

ACCEPT: "R.I.P. Clive Burr. He will be truly missed....he left us with some amazing drumming. Loved his style and sound."

ANNIHILATOR's Jeff Waters: "RIP Clive. One of the best, most original and most underrated drummers ever. His style was unique... his performances on those first 3 Maiden records influenced the drumming I've been writing for ANNIHILATOR all these years and he had me air-drumming my whole metal life... Only Lombardo was air-drummed more by me! Clive was #2 :) I met him once and was a class act. This is a loss of a true legend and innovator. Time to crank up "THE PRISONER"."

SAXON's Nigel Glockler: "I have just been informed that former IRON MAIDEN drummer Clive Burr has passed away. Clive's drumming as an important part of those early Maiden albums and sound. My sincere sympathies to his family, IRON MAIDEN and fans everywhere. RIP Clive."

Paul Bostaph (SLAYER, TESTAMENT, EXODUS, FORBIDDEN): "I'm truly saddened to hear of Clive Burr's passing. His drumming has had and still has a strong influence on my playing style. I bummed I never go to meet him and thank him in person for his musical gifts. God speed Clive!"

METAL CHURCH's Ronny Munroe: "The music world has lost another great in Clive Burr. IRON MAIDEN's early drummer. Who has finally lost his battle with MS after many years of fighting. I learned a lot of what I know on Drums from listening and watching Clive and the early Maiden years. So a big "thank you" to Clive Burr, may he rest in peace. My Condolences to his family and friends."

JEFF SCOTT SOTO: "RIP to the best and original drummer of IRON MAIDEN, Clive Burr...prayers to him and his family!"

SACRED REICH: "RIP Clive Burr. The early IRON MAIDEN records are still my favorite ones."
