CLIFF BURTON – A Metal Warrior For Eternity, Rest In Peace

Cliff Burton - Kerrang! - 1988 - promo cover pic

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.
