burr fest

The organisers of Burr Fest, the annual charity fundraising event for MS Action Fund, in memory of former Iron Maiden drummer Clive Burr, are offering you the opportunity to own a truly unique book.

This year's event, held at The Lounge in north London, was a triumph with Airforce, featuring former Maiden drummer Doug Sampson, and V1, featuring two former Maiden members in Dennis Willcock and Terry Wapram, playing live, as well as Thunderstick and several others.

Steve 'Loopy' Newhouse was kind enough to donate a one-off-a-kind copy of his fantastic book 'Loopy World - The Iron Maiden Years', for the auction and this is now the final item to be auctioned off for Burr Fest 2017.

Steve's book has been a resounding success and you can read all about it right here. Once you've done that, head to Jumblebee and bid for a very special copy.

This particular copy toured the UK with Steve during the Iron Maiden's recent 'The Book Of Souls' UK tour, gaining signatures from Steve Harris, Dennis Stratton, Gun, Thomas Zwijsen and many, many fans from across the world.

This is an item for serious collectors and all the proceeds go to the MS Action Fund, in memory of Clive Burr. Bidding is open until Monday 17th July 2017.

The next Burr Fest takes place on Saturday 10th March 2018 and we'll let you know the venue and line-up as soon as we have it.

Monsters Of Rock In Full Flight is strictly limited to 300 worldwide and is available from 30th November but those ordering before 31st October will have their name published within a dedicated page in the book.

It's a deluxe 128 page hardback book in a metal flight case with a narrative by Jerry Bloom.

When promoter Paul Loasby put on the first Monsters Of Rock Festival in 1980 he could probably never have imagined it would become an annual event that would endure for so many years.

Featuring bands from the UK, Germany, Canada and USA, Loasby chose to stage the event at the Donington race circuit in the middle of England and it would prove to be a defining moment for many of the bands on the bill.

Not least for headliners Rainbow as it was the their last ever show to feature drum legend Cozy Powell. As it would happen it turned out to be the last for vocalist Graham Bonnet as well. For many of the other bands on the bill such as Scorpions, Judas Priest and Saxon, they were all on the ascendancy and would soon go on to even greater success.

Now in celebration of this first ever Monsters Of Rock Festival comes this hardback book full of glorious photos of the bands that took to the stage for that inaugural event including back stage shots. Most of these shots have not been published before which add to the uniqueness of this deluxe 128-page book which is packaged in its own flight case.

Also included are stories surrounding the event with tales and recollections from those who were there, including artists and fans alike. Each book will be signed by the author. The 300 will sell fast and definitely go on to become collector's items so order yours now right here to avoid disappointment.
