Memories of Metallica’s lost bass titan Cliff Burton from Kirk Hammett, Lars Ulrich and James Hetfield

Cliff Burton, Metallica’s original bassist, played a massive role in plotting. the band’s direction, an influence that palpably resonates in its entire body of work. He was tragically killed when the metal giants’ tourbus overturned on a rural road in Sweden 27 September 1986.

Of course, there are many more positive, if inevitably bittersweet memories to look back on. Take Burton’s final show, for example.

Speaking to Gibson TV (below) in 2020, lead guitarist Kirk Hammett recalled a rip-roaring performance.

“The last show that we played with Cliff was a spectacular show,” Kirk recalls in the interview. “It was the first show after maybe six or seven weeks when James [Hetfield] was back on guitar because he had broken his arm during the Ozzy tour.
