Yorktown-class aircraft carrier
The missing piece comes down to lack of bootlegs two weeks into July 1982. On all bootlegged shows of '82 Clive plays, from beginning to the end of the tour.Mostly because the information is not maintained.
I guess my supreme skepticism here is that nobody, anywhere, has noted that Clive's dad died during this tour, except Clive himself. I'm not saying it didn't happen, but it should be noted somewhere. Some Maiden fan from 1982 should be bragging about "seeing Nicko play with Maiden before he was in Maiden".
I only know that Nicko had replaced Clive for a fortnight. Two weeks. Since I guess there is no known audio recording with Nicko, his term must have been a two week term somewhere in between bootlegs.I decided to go looking for when Ronald Burr died, to see approximately what dates Clive might have taken off, and I can find no obituary for him in the various obituary databases. Anyone have any idea when this happened?
