[EMF] Effing Metal Friday! 9.27.13 – In Honor of Cliff Burton


Metal lost a founding member on this day in 1986. Metallica experienced a tragic bus accident in rural Sweden while touring in support of the Master of Puppets album. After winning a game of Ace of Spades, a card game that gives the winner first bunk pick, Cliff claimed Kirk Hammett’s bed. The bus reportedly hit a patch of black ice, flipped over and pinned Cliff underneath its massive weight. He died at the scene. 27 years later, Cliff is an icon in the genre, loved far and wide for his exceptional skill and passion. I count myself as fortunate for having seen him perform live. Enjoy the music – I certainly do.

R.I.P. Cliff.

Emptiness is filling me
To the point of agony
Growing darkness taking dawn
I was me, but now he ‘s gone
