  • This may sound like a stupid question, but what are the chances that they guys in Metallica would have asked Dave to rejoin if it had been Kirk?

  • Kirk sure doesn't talk like this now,he sounds burnt out now days.

  • Cliff's death is one of the biggest examples I can think of in terms of talent being taken to soon. He was one of the best bassists I've seen play, Newstead was very solid, and helped move the band forward. But Cliff couldn't be touched.

  • Im surprised that Jason stuck with them for so long, I mean I love metallica but that attitude with Jason which practically lasted his entire career with them is just plain being assholes to a gem of a guy that Jason was.

  • Give Metallica a movie like they did the dirt for Mötley crue

  • Had they were not Metallica I would imagine James becomes a pastor to a church, Lars would've become a great tennis player after his dad, Kirk would go back to Philippines to start a real estate business while Cliff would become the president of a food chain company. But I guess fate brought their luck together and become one of the best rock metal band ever..

  • RIP Cliff Burton, one of the greatest bassist to ever do it, so good even Les Claypool couldn't even fill his shoes.

  • One thing that caught my attention when Hetfield was originally interviewed is that he said the temperature was around "10 below". But weather reports indicated the temp that night was around 2 °C or 36 °F. If he thought it was below zero why did he "walk for miles" looking for black ice if he already thought the weather was below zero? He shouldn't have suspected a drunk bus driver is this was the case. Maybe just a recollection issue. Stuff isn't clear in tragic situations like that.

     Anyway, I remember the moment I heard about Cliff's death. I was stunned. As much as I was when I learned that Lennon had been shot.

  • I only just thought about it but not that it's in my head I can't get it out. So many musician's and Rockstars die from drugs and alcohol abuse, a sad but overall self inflicted death, but cliff. Cliff was taken away unfairly, he did nothing to deserve it, he played like a legend and from what i hear was one of the kindest rockstars I know.
    He didn't deserve it, he didn't bring it on himself, he was too good a person to go.

  • Lars now days acts like a bitch he's got feelings and probably carries a purse with a pack of Tampax to put up his ass

  • Kinda feel like travelling accidents kill more musicians than drugs or alcohol

  • Everyone loves Jason, he was great with them.

  • Maybe the bus driver was just trying to get him out using the blanket

  • They'll never be a bass player like Cliff! Gee i wonder why Jason isn't on Justice. Look at Kirk & Lars with makeup and no hair lol the sellout days..

  • Ozzy and Metallica in that era must’ve been a hell of a show

  • Imagine metallica with Les claypool, it would have been fucking awesome
