Nicko McBrain’s Rock n’ Roll Send Off

Rock N Roll Ribs in Coral Springs Rocks Fans with RiFF RaFF, War Pigs and McBrain Damage

At Nicko McBrain’s Rock N Roll Ribs Restaurant, Nicko celebrated with fans, friends and family. He will soon depart on the 2010 tour with his band Iron Maiden. Helping rock the crowd of thousands of people throughout the day on Sunday, May 30, was South Florida cover band RiFF RaFF with Gorilla Koppisch (bass, vocals), Tim Smith, (guitar, vocals) and Steve Dewey (Drums). After RiFF RaFF, War Pigs, a Black Sabbath tribute band featuring Dave the Beast Spitz played it loud! Tim Smith also does vocals with this band, singing pretty close to sounds of Ozzy and Dio. Also, there was a special tribute to Dio. He was talked about frequently by friends and fans and his music was played throughout the day.

Ribs, sandwiches, bbq beans… tons of food was served all day long, the staff worked their asses off. They were great and pleasure to be around!

Nicko McBrain arrived a little late, after a long day of rehearsal and a photo-shoot with Iron Maiden. His band McBrain Damage ended the show with a great set of music. McBrain Damage features Nicko (of course on drums), Rick Baum (guitar), Dave the Beast Spitz (bass) and once again Tim Brown on vocal.

Nicko hung out after the show with patient fans. A rockin’ time was had by all.
