So what is Cliveaid? Well it was started to help out Clive Burr ( Ex Iron Maiden ) who suffers from MS. So we set about getting a gig going at the Ruskin Arms in 2005. We secured the venue and support from some of the NWOBHM stars that played with Iron Maiden when Clive was at the kit 450+ people turned out to rock the night away with bands including Chariot, Stray and GMT. So what next well enter Robin Guy who came up with the plan to get Clive's "KILLERS" drumkit into the Hardrock cafe.Ok then we contacted the Hardrock Cafe regarding Clive's original Drumkit and we managed to secure a place in the hallowed halls of the HRC for Clive's Kit. At a star studded party in November 2005 the kit was handed over to its new owners. At that point it was decided to move Cliveaid along to the next level.
It was decided that we should now concentrate on a very special and much needed cause, That of Music Therapy. We came to realise that the Rock and metal we all love, can and does help people who are less fortunate than ourselves. Clive was the first to agree to the new format of Cliveaid. So we are now moving forward to open our first Music Therapy Centers. To do This we need your help.
During the coming months and years we are aiming to help people in the UK and abroad, our eyes are firmly set on opening a center in Hollywood, Bergen and at least three in the UK, Our aims and goals are to increase the availability of Therapy through music to the people who need it. We have some great musicians who have pledged to help us by holding special clinics for us.We will of course continue our work with Clive and also support Teenage cancer. PLEASE HAVE A LOOK AROUND THE SITE BEFORE YOU GO. We expect to be able to provide help to many people over the coming years and if you feel you can help in anyway then please go to our Myspace site and join us or email us HERE
