Happy 56th Birthday to Iron Maiden sticksman Michael Henry Nicko McBrain!
Do you know much about French metal? No? Hmm, neither do I except for Gojira and a little about this band. (Though apparently there's some good stuff that I'm missing...suggestions welcomed!)
But if you happened to catch Maiden during their April 1982 run through Germany on the Beast On The Road tour (I didn't catch them until August 3), then you would have caught Trust opening for them, and therefore would have caught today's birthday boy on the kit during the last of his pre-Maiden days! It was from this experience that Maiden were smart enough to welcome Nicko when Clive Burr became tired of the road after that tour and elected to vacate the stool.
