CLIFF BURTON – A Metal Warrior For Eternity, Rest In Peace
Above: KERRANG! – April 30th, 1988, No. 185
On September 27th, 1986, Clifford Lee “Cliff” Burton passed away from injuries sustained in a bus accident, in Sweden, at the very young age of 24. It seems like yesterday, when I first heard the tragic news. I feel lucky, no, I feel blessed that I was able to see Cliff Burton perform live on stage, with Metallica, so many years ago.
There shall never be another bassist like Cliff Burton. I and my fellow Metal brethren shall celebrate the Metal accomplishments of Cliff Burton, today and every day. Life is to be cherished. Metal be thy name.
CLIFFORD LEE BURTON
February 10th, 1962 – September 27th, 1986
GOD BLESS CLIFF BURTON.
REST IN PEACE, CLIFF BURTON.
