#TBT Cliff Burton Tribute

Yesterday, February 10th was Cliff Burton’s birthday. Cliff was the bassist for Metallica’s first three albums Kill ‘Em All, Ride the Lightning, and Master of Puppets. Cliff’s bass playing tone and style was something unlike most music at the time and is often racked high on the list of inspirations for bassists in all forms of rock music. This coming September will also mark the 30th anniversary of Cliff Burton’s untimely death in a bus crash in Sweden. But for now, here are 3 songs that demonstrate Cliff’s style and talent on the bass.

Rest in Peace, Cliff. Happy Birthday.
