This is simply tragic.
They should bury the asshat who did this under the new trees that will be planted there.

FBill and I met this lad in ATL: From Loudwire, penned by Graham Hartmann.
This year we lost one of heavy metal’s greatest drummers in Clive Burr. The man behind the kit passed away at the age of 56, leaving Iron Maiden fans shocked and saddened by the news.
Burr is celebrated most as Iron Maiden’s former drummer, having recorded brilliant percussion pieces for Maiden’s self-titled album, ‘Killers’ and ‘The Number of the Beast.’ The character Burr was able to inject into Iron Maiden’s music is nearly unparalleled, displayed beautifully in tracks such as ‘The Number of the Beast,’ ‘Run to the Hills,’ ‘Iron Maiden’ and ‘Hallowed Be Thy Name.’ Burr was also a member of Samson, a band which also featured future Maiden vocalist Bruce Dickinson.
Clive Burr passed away on March 12 due to complications from Multiple Sclerosis. Burr suffered with the ailment for many years, but passed away peacefully in his sleep.
“This is terribly sad news,” commented Iron Maiden bassist Steve Harris. “Clive was a very old friend of all of us. He was a wonderful person and an amazing drummer who made a valuable contribution to Maiden in the early days when we were starting out. This is a sad day for everyone in the band and those around him and our thoughts and condolences are with his partner Mimi and family at this time.”
Another one gone. Richie Havens, who famously opened Woodstock with a three hour performance because the other bands were stuck in traffic, has died at age 72. Freedom. RIP Richie.
