CLIFF BURTON WOULD HAVE BEEN FIFTY TODAY
Forget Axl Rose — the great Cliff Burton would have turned fifty today. We have no idea what he would have accomplished had he lived past the age of twenty-four… if he would have been able to stop the debacle that Metallica became or if he would have been a willing participant in the shenanigans… but we know we would have liked to find out.
Here’s an old interview with Burton that we dug up from YouTube.
Happy birthday, Cliff. We’ll always miss ya, dude.

Thanks to Kyle for the reminder.
