For the first time in 25 years Metallica does something right!
Actually it is the TRUE FANS of Metallica that get it right, seeing this was done via petition at Change.org and is now successful due to the effort of Cliff fans. Thank to all involved!
It goes without saying, as we’ve said many times in many articles here at Metal Mofos, that Cliff Burton is the key ingredient that took Metallica from a good band that emulated much of the NWOBHM in their style, to an all time epic band that fused progressive and baroque influences into their already aggressive Thrash foundation. For four straight landmark albums Cliff’s amazing influence was clearly evident.
The loss of Cliff precipitated Metallica’s downfall from a band of the incredible musical progression to one that sold its soul to the god of sellouts.
Thank you Cliff for keeping this band real for four incredible albums, and before you point out my “mistake” I most certainly include And Justice For All as a Cliff album as Cliff’s progressive baroque songwriting style and influence was all over the album. It was Cliff’s last musical gasp. RIP my brother!
IT’S OFFICIAL! The Board of Supervisors from Alameda County has just proclaimed February 10, 2018, which would have been Cliff’s 56th birthday, “Cliff Burton Day.” As many of you know, Cliff was born and raised in Castro Valley and was the reason we high-tailed it to the Bay Area back in ’83. Thanks to all of the fans who got behind this initiative and we’d like to send our appreciation and respect to all of you who continue to honor Cliff in your own personal ways. We love that he remains so revered. ✍🏻 #metallica #cliffburtonday #alamedacounty #cliffemall 📸 @castrovalleynews
