    While it s great that McIver got to interview people very close to Cliff Burton ie, his parents, Trauma band members, girlfriend , this book is a padded, repetitive, and ultimately, wasted opportunity Yes, Cliff was a major influence on Metallica, a great guy, a fantastic bassist, and an open minded music fan, but does the reade

    The book about Cliff Burton is a story of his impact on Metallica and people all around him during mostly 1983 and 1986, when in September 27th he died in bus accident in Sweden, while touring with Metallica s third masterpiece album Master of Puppets untold story of great musician interviews and comments of Mettalica s bandmembers and other famous musicians a

    Make no mistake this book will further mythologize Mr Burton.Like an inane fan McIver will offer his look on what Metallica would have become if Burton would have survived which is totally uncalled for, not to mention preposterous.In essence he argues that Metallica would have turned out pretty much the same after Puppets if not even mellow because A Burton had a ve
