Default Re: Nicko McBrain

Hello fellow Nicko fans. He is fantastic isn't he? I have followed his career with Maiden since he joined. I must add I thought Clive was the best drummer out there doing that kind of music until Nicko came along. No dis-respect Clive, I still love ya mate!! :)
One thing though, I kind of wish he'd used a click track to record with in the early days. On 7th Son tracks such as "Moonchild" and "Can I play with Madness" he speeds up so much. He can be a massive racer sometimes. I thought Harry would've said something, but obviously he didn't mind.
Have a listen to "Moonchild" and count with him during the intro and then keep counting as he rips into the first verse.
I don't wanna sound like I'm rippin on the dude by any means, but it's pretty obvious.
My band.....
