Default Re: Nicko McBrain

In a Maiden DVD he said that his first inspiration for starting on the drums was the great Joe Morelo and the classic Take Five track, the guy is over 50 so his first inspirations are jazz drummers as all of the rock drummers of the 60's.

Nicko is just great and still kickin after all these years but don't forget he took also great inspiration from Maiden's first drummer Clive Burr who was also an incredible drummer that now has a serious disease unfortunately.

Nicko was amazing on the Powerslave cd and Live After Death !

Up the Irons, Jazz Fans !
