Rock Musician. He was the original drummer for the band Iron Maiden (1979-1982) and played on the band's first three albums: Iron Maiden, Killers, and Number of the Beast. He was co-writer of the songs "Gangland", and another song, "Total Eclipse". He left the band in December 1982 due to personal problems.
