RIP to Thee Master
CLIFFORD LEE BURTON
February 10, 1962 – September 27, 1986
The following YouTube video clip is embedded on most Cliff Burton tribute pages today, quite rightly. It's just incredible watching him on stage, he moves like no other. That's it, I am digging out my old Cliff Em All VHS and watching it for the first time since god-knows-when. Seeing him in this video is a flashback to better times. He was the living breathing embodiment of all that I ever wanted to be in the world.
I ask you now the same question that we all know Hetfield must have been asking himself all of these years: Why him?

THEE CLAW SAYS: Not enough tributes.
24 years already? Man.
