Cliff Burton was tied with Geezer Butler (Black Sabbath) of being my favorite bassist. The man was so inventive
with his music. He didn't let the fact that bass is the least heard thing in music discourage him from giving it his all every
time he played. In my opinion, Metallica was best when they had him. I loved the solo he did in Cliff 'em all... he made that
mother fucker sound like an electric guitar!!!! That's true talent... in my view. My favorite song that he played in was Master
of puppets and first song i heard with him in it was Seek and Destroy...
was a genius to the fullest extent of the definition... He could do damn near anything with that piece of wood w/ strings,
his instrument (or what i say, his "murder weapon) of chioce, the bass...
If you havent
heard the man play, try to get the rare CD Cliff 'em all by metallica or Kill 'em all, Ride the
lightning, or Master of puppets. He's amazing... even if you don't like his playing, the records above is a must have
(expecially master of puppets). this was from when Metallica was kicking ass every night with hard ass riffs and unbelieveable
All i have
left to say is i hope you like the info...
Rest in peace Cliff...
