Iron Maiden Drummer Nicko McBrain’s Wife Accused of Assault
The wife of Iron Maiden drummer Nicko McBrain was arrested and charged with domestic battery earlier this year, and she’ll have her date in court next month. Rebecca McBrain will face a judge on May 3 after being accused of trying to stab her husband*, and throw logs at him.
* 4/18 Update: The Boca News Now website, our original source, has altered its story to report that it is now unclear whether the man who was allegedly attacked is Nicko McBrain. The rest of this article has been updated to reflect this new information.
The couple live near Boca Raton, Fla., and the incident allegedly occurred at their home on Feb. 24, according to the Boca News Now. She was not successful in her stabbing attempt, but the logs caused minor injuries and she was arrested and booked at the Palm Beach County Jail.
Bravewords reports that the logs were sitting in a fire pit behind the home. The 50-year-old was released on $3,000 bond, and has entered a not guilty plea.
In the early 2000’s, the McBrains worked together to produce Rebecca’s ‘Voyager’ album. Nicko produced the project and drummed on all tracks in addition to writing five of the eight songs. The couple is thought to have met in 1984 at the Button South in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
Earlier this month, Iron Maiden announced seven Maiden England Tour dates in the United States.
