During the German leg of Premier‘s “An Evening With Nicko – A Night Of Drums, Drumming And Entertainment With Iron Maiden’s Nicko McBrain”, Rhythm magazine set up a camera to capture his 11-piece beast being set up. The magazine also took the time to speak to Nicko‘s drum tech Charlie Charlesworthto find out what it’s like to look after such an expansive drum kit. Check out the footage below.
Nicko McBrain hardly requires an introduction. Having joined IRON MAIDEN in 1982, Nicko has become an established and charismatic figure within the music fraternity, renowned for his humor, showmanship and live performances. He has influenced many modern drummers over a wide range of styles.
Nicko first endorsed Premier back in 1993 choosing the company’s Signia kit, mounted upon a custom-built Falicon rack from America. Since then, Premier has supplied Nicko with a number of iconic custom kits to support MAIDEN‘s world tours, most recently for “The Final Frontier World Tour” which took the band across five continents playing to over two million fans right around the globe.
