BLAZER BLAZER figure in the IRON MAIDEN story for once having featured future drummer Nicko McBrain. The sticksman was a member of AXE and STREETWALKERS prior to BLAZER BLAZER.
Having released the ‘Cecil B. Devine’ single the group splintered.
Vocalist Jeb Million, bass player Steve Wells and drummer Ian Richardson founded BROADWAY BRATS, adding ex URCHIN guitarists Adrian Smith (who would also join IRON MAIDEN) and Andy Barnett. The latter would make his name with FM.
Following the groups break-up, guitarist Derek O ‘Reilly formed MARSHALL FURY with McBrain, bassist Martin Connoly and Andy Barnett. The drummer then joined French Rockers TRUST before finding his vocation with IRON MAIDEN.
