It’s been twenty five years since we lost Cliff Burton. Granted I wasn’t alive back then and I didn’t know who Metallica was till many years later, I know who Cliff Burton was. Before Cliff I thought that the bass was just a buffer for the drums to make them sound better(granted I knew NOTHING about music back then at age 12) but after seeing Cliff my mind was blown. The bass lead in “For Whom the Bell Tolls” absolutely blew my mind. His work in “Orion”, hell the entire “Master of Puppets” album. God took Cliff Burton away from us at the age of twenty-four, twenty-five years ago today. I’m not going to talk about Metallica here, this is all Cliff, all day.
Please, post your thoughts and opinions on Cliff and let’s remember him today.
