Iron Maiden’s Nicko McBrain Recovering From Stroke
Iron Maiden’s Nicko McBrain says he suffered a stroke in January and was temporarily paralyzed from his right shoulder on down and feared his career was over. After 10 weeks of intense therapy, he’s now back to around 70% recovered.
He described the stroke as a “minor one, referred to as a TIA,” which stands for transient ischemic attack.
McBrain posted a video online so that fans could see that he’s ok now, he said, “I’m not there yet, but by the grace of God I’m getting better and stronger as the weeks go by.”
McBrain, who has been the band’s drummer since 1982, recovered enough to join Iron Maiden’s Future Past tour when it kicked off in May.
Iron Maiden will be playing in Germany this week and will be in America on October 6 at the Power Trip Festival in India, California.
