IRON MAIDEN Drummer Celebrates 61st Birthday On Stage In Paris (Video)

IRON MAIDEN drummer Nicko McBrain celebrated his 61st birthday during the band's concert last night (Wednesday, June 5) at Bercy in Paris, France.

Fan-filmed video footage of MAIDEN singer Bruce Dickinson's lengthy French-language introduction, along with a crowd sing-along of "Happy Birthday" to McBrain, can be seen below.

BocaNewsNow.com reported in late April that Nicko McBrain's 20-year-old son Justin was arrested for allegedly burglarizing an occupied dwelling and second-degree petit theft.

Nicko McBrain's wife, Rebecca McBrain, 50, was arrested on February 24 and charged with battery after she allegedly tried to stab the man with a decorative lance. Although the stabbing attempt failed, Rebecca was allegedly successful in hitting the man with logs that had been sitting in a firepit behind the house, causing minor injuries. She was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail and later released on bond.

According to a 1994 article in the Sun Sentinel, Nicko and Rebecca met in 1984 at the Button South in Fort Lauderdale. They married five years later and have made a home in Boca Raton around their son, Justin.

Back in July 2003, Nicko McBrain was arrested for allegedly hitting a parking lot attendant — on purpose — with his black Jaguar after a disagreement over McBrain's VIP credentials before a concert at Jones Beach Theatre in Wantagh, New York. "It's one of those things that happened that shouldn't have happened, but it did, and over time, you sort of look at it and go, 'Gosh, that was silly,'" Nicko said in an August 2004 interview. "And the other guy that was involved with it, I'm sure he's sitting there thinking [the same thing]."
