Nicko McBrain, at least as much as I do love this crazy guy with a hard accent to get, this piece of news might interest you: Iron Maiden's drummer's instructional video Rhythms of the Beast has just been remastered and released as a DVD in a limited edition of 3,000 copies in the Iron Maiden online shop.
This video was originally released in 1991 as a VHS, and now it includes PCM stereo and 5.1 Surround sound formats. Oh, and a free Rhythms of the Beast lanyard... not that I'd buy the DVD because of the lanyard though...
During its 90-minutes length Nicko covers tuning, warm-up exercises, choosing cymbals and pedals, and soloing. From rudiments to soloing, cymbals to miking, as well as a live performance of the song Rhythms of the Beast accompanied by other musicians including Iron Maiden's guitarist Dave Murray.
This is an enticing rarity to own and I'd love to lay my hands on it. Here's the trailer that ironmaiden.com has released for you to see:
