We salute former Metallica bassist, Cliff Burton with today’s 5 @ 5 with four other incredible bassists.
Cliff Burton was born February 10th, 1962. He would have been 54 today had the tour bus not flipped on a late night trek from Sweden to Denmark, taking away the guy that was considered ‘the heart and soul’ of Metallica.
The bassist who played bass without a pick, just his fingers. Part of the legendary metal rhythm section with Lars. A big part of songwriting for the first three Metallica albums too. Rest in Peace.
