Although not Iron Maiden's original drummer, Burr played on their first three albums before being replaced by Nicko McBrain. The two drummers effectively traded places as Burr then briefly joined Trust as McBrain's replacement.


Stratus, first known as Clive Burr's Escape (then briefly Tygon and Stratas) released an album in 1984 titled "Throwing Shapes." A song from it, "Run for Your Life," was featured in the Troma film "Class of Nuke 'em High."

He replaced Bruce Bisland in Praying Mantis between 1995/96 and recorded the live album Captured Alive in Tokyo City (Canyon International, 1996).
