To Live Is To Die The Life And Death Of Metallica S Cliff Burton
He could hold his own with his bandmates no matter how heavy or knotted up the arrangements became. Burton was a presence on those first three Metallica albums, distinguishing himself as a vital piece of the puzzle. His contributions to the songwriting and his mere presence as this positive, leveling force within the band, not to mention his willingness to put the work in, helped propel Metallica to levels of success around the world that were unheard of at the time.
And, as is oft-repeated but still worth mentioning, they did it without the support of the dual forces of commercial radio and MTV. When that was ripped away from the world on September 27, , nothing would be the same for the group after.
Again: for good and for ill. In a video released to promote a book about the making of Master of Puppets , Kirk Hammett wiped away tears when talking about his old friend. Over three decades later, no one who knew him or had their lives affected by the music that he made can really let Burton go.
A well written one. The dude came to learn. He learned much from them and was always respectful towards them, and it became apparent to me that that is where he got his disciplined approach to learning the instrument. A love of music yes, but musical talent no. The book is organized first by date spans, and then by Metallica album and the events that were involved in the making of the album and its subsequent tours and notable events.
I found the focus on the albums, and his bass playing on the albums, eye opening and informative. The musical aspect of this book does not leave you wanting. She provides a great amount of detail as to who Cliff was as a man, and his camaraderie with his friends outside Metallica during their rise to arena band.
True to himself and his musical beliefs, with no accounting for image or criticism. Corinne confirms this on every level.
Her insights into his character are gold, and it was Cliff that stayed gold to steal a line from The Outsiders despite the distractions that came along with becoming a major label recording artist.
I want to personally thank Corinne Lynn for opening up for our edification on this great man and musician. Cliff Burton is probably my lone Heavy Metal musical hero.
It was only years after his passing that I came to that understanding, and it was after reading this great book on his life that it verified all that I had come to understand about his immense musical impact on heavy metal, and his personal impact on me. He was only in Metallica for about three and a half years, but they were arguably the most influential years of any one Heavy Metal musician we have every known, and most definitely the most influential in Thrash Metal. Read this book and learn about the man that helped shape metal as we have come to know it.
Shortly after Burton's death, Jason Newsted from Flotsam and Jetsam became Metallica's new bassist, a position he held until his resignation in Burton also received a writing credit for the lyrics and bass parts that were taken from unused bass recordings done by Burton which were re-recorded by Jason Newsted.
According to Dave Mustaine , due to hearing of Burton's death, he sat down and wrote the music for the song in one sitting. The lyrics, however, are unrelated to Burton's death. Mustaine was Metallica's lead guitarist in the early days and was a close friend of Burton at the time.
On October 3, , a memorial stone was unveiled in Sweden near the scene of the fatal crash. During the ceremony, the induction was accepted by his father Ray Burton, who shared the stage with the band and mentioned that Cliff's mother was actually Metallica's biggest fan. Hammett provided the book's foreword. In November , Metallica released the album Hardwired The deluxe version of the album features a series of live recordings at Berkeley, California's legendary record store Rasputin Music in celebration of Record Store Day on April 16, During the song Hetfield yells, 'Can you hear us Cliff?
In , it was revealed that Burton's parents had been "quietly" donating his posthumous royalty payments to a scholarship fund for music students at his alma mater Castro Valley High School. In , the Alameda County, California , Board of Supervisors issued a proclamation declaring February 10, what would have been Burton's 56th birthday as "Cliff Burton Day" after a fan petition successfully passed.
Cliff Burton used a handful of basses over his career. The first bass guitar he was publicly seen playing in Metallica was a heavily modified Rickenbacker , painted in a "Burgundyglo" color. After joining Metallica Burton had the stock pickups removed, and had the neck humbucker from a Gibson EB-0 installed in the neck position, a Seymour Duncan Jazz pickup in the bridge position and a guitar pickup was fitted under the bridge of the bass.
At some point after recording Kill Em All , Burton retired this bass from public use due to malfunction, and instead used a variety of high-end bass guitars, most notably an Alembic Spoiler, and an Aria Pro SB Burton used an array of amplifiers and effects pedals as well. They had received permission from Burton's family and former bandmates from Metallica to authorize the production of the instrument.
On January 25, , Burton's father Ray attended the press conference where he signed autographs and talked about Burton and the instrument. It is unknown whether any other members of Metallica attended the event. Ray Burton was quoted as saying, '"What a beautiful instrument and a wonderful tribute to Cliff.

To Live Is to Die: The Life and Death of Metallicas Cliff
Everyone read or slept, just wishing for the traveling to be over. They were subdued by the visit to Daytona, too, of course. Despite the punishing distance of this last leg of the journey, Harley was glad that the tour had not ended in the sadness of Daytona, but with the pageantry and excitement of a race day in Darlington. Would one of you like to tell the reverend how Darlington got its nickname. The information will be in the program, I expect. His ascetic features make me think of a poet or composer, rather than an efficient and dedicated legal secretary.

Following his passing, Metallica went on to huge global success, but by their own admission they never pushed the creative envelope as radically as they had done during the first four years of their career. The cult of Burton grows year on year, with many bassists even those outside of heavy metal acknowledging his influence. This revised and updated edition of To Live Is To Die , published to mark the 30th anniversary of his passing, adds a new appreciation of his influence and an afterword by Anthrax bassist Frank Bello. Particularly good on the enormous influence Burton had on the rest of Metallica.
