Dead Rock Stars 7: Cliff Burton (Metallica)

Cliff Burton was that rare thing; not only was he a hugely talented bass player, but he was a bass player who was the driving force behind his band In his all too brief three year stint with Metallica, he gave them the drive, desire and determination to go from being underground warriors to the biggest metal band on the planet. But tragically, Cliff was not to see his band realise their dreams and scale such dizzying heights. In late 1986. he was killed in a bus crash in Sweden as Metallica toured Master Of Puppets, an album that's since been recognised as one of the greatest and most influential albums of not only the Eighties, but of all time.
