Iron Maiden's Nicko McBrain to school friend who broke his nose: "Look where I am now"


Iron Maiden's Nicko McBrain was recently interviewed by The Drummer's Journal, you can read some excerpts below.

About a school friend who broke his nose: "I had a fight at school with one of my best mates, Peter Beecham. He beat the fuck out of me, he did. He broke my nose – I didn’t know he’d broken my nose. It started off with a duffle bag fight, then he clobbered me. We started a slapping fight and I clapped him one. He hated it, ‘You fucking bastard!’ And the fists came out."

He added: "It was after school, everybody came in the circle, ‘Fight! Fight! Fight!’ He clobbered me good, the bastard."

McBrain and Beecham haven't seen each other in years, leading the drummer to speculate: "I wonder where he is today, if he’s still with us. You never know. You bastard. Look what you did. Look where I am now, though, fuck you!"
