On this day 25 years ago we lost bass player Cliff Burton of Metallica.Everyone knows the story on how we lost Cliff Burton to a tragic bus crash. In 2009 a book was published celebrating the life of Cliff Burton entitled "To Live Is To Die: The Life And Death Of Metallica's Cliff Burton." You can purchase the book here.

Cliff's ability to make a bass sound like a guitar is unmatched. Easily one of the greatest bass players ever. We salute Cliff Burton on all of his achievements. He still continues to inspire musicians to this day even after 25 years after his death!
