METALLICA Guitarist KIRK HAMMETT Pays Tribute To The Late CLIFF BURTON

Yesterday, METALLICA guitarist Kirk Hammett shared a classic concert photo of him and late bassist Cliff Burton, along with the following post: “Cliff was one of my closest friends. He was really smart and funny too. We shared a love for horror, HP Lovecraft, and THE VELVET UNDERGROUND. He constantly pushed me to be a better person and musician. One of his favorite quotes he would say to me often was ‘There is power in truth, never back down.’

“It was so unexpected when he left us. The sadness remains. I will always remember him.

“I am not sure who took this photo — but it’s a great one. @metallica #metallicafamily”

Burton played on METALLICA’s first three studio albums  – “Kill ‘Em All”, “Ride The Lightning” and “Master Of Puppets” – before his life was tragically cut short at the age of 24 in a tour bus crash on September 27, 1986 in Sweden.
