Cliff 'Em All
Today we pay tribute to one of rock’s truly great bassists. I was going to write in great detail of Cliff Burton’s immense talent; how he was the soul of the Metallica; how he joined the band on condition they move to Frisco; about his denim bell-bottoms; how he schooled the band about melody & harmony; how played the bass like a lead guitarist; that he died at the young age of 24 and what could have been; even argue that Metallica lost their way after he died. There are books full of this stuff - but sometimes a single video tells the whole story.
If you want to go deeper, check out Cliff 'Em All, the video of Metallica in their earliest days. The video is below the image of the cover shot.
