This should be stickied.
Wife and Kids
I think he means that Lars is gay but in a non poofie way, or something like that.
Teehee, the age old question, "Would Metallica have sold out if good ol` Cliff wouldn't have died?" R.i.p. Metallica and Cliff.
A dead heroes thread should be stickied, but not this one.
Oh, and your sig kicks major ass. As usual, if you're who I think you are.
he would be ashamed if he saw what metallica is today
one of the greatest bassists ever!!!
that would be sick.
I bet Metallica would've never sold out had Cliff still been alive.
nah, it probably wouldve happened, but they jus wouldve stayed good longer, or somthing like that.
They would probably still be metal at least. Meeting Bob Rock was their downfall.
One of the greatest ever? Hmmmm.... seriously doubt, but yes he was good.
Steve Harris was better than him.
Long live Cliff.. er I mean RIP
Definitely one of the most influential musicians within the metal genre. Definitely ahead of his time when he was alive. Who would he be now - we'll never know. The guy is fucking dead. He may not even be playing music today, or maybe he would've kept James and Lars in check, or maybe he would be sucking right beside the abovementioned duo. He made his mark and may he rest in peace.
Cliff was my biggest influence as far as bass playing went when I was a kid, I learned all of the bass lines on the first 3 Metallica albums, and jumped around my bedroom pretending to be him. Cliff was an individual, he didn't follow trends, and he gave Metallica their groove. It's that groove that's sadly lacking from And Justice for all.
Cliff wrote heaps of stuff on the Ride The Lightning and Master Of Puppets albums (easily their best work) and wrote most of 'To Live Is To Die' on Justice. I know it's easy to look at someone through rose coloured glasses when they're gone, but I really honestly feel that Metallica lost their 'cool' when Cliff died. I don't think he was technically the best bass player ever, but he had a great individual style that I loved.
I can't believe he's been dead 20 years, it makes me feel hella old.
Cliff in action back in the day:
I'm down with the afterlife supergroup!
i posted this on the other cliff thread, CLASSIC vid.
RIP man. damn.
let's all have ten minute heart failures to see the supergroup in the after and if they kickass then we stay if not then we come back
P.S. I think Hammett has had a dick in his ass countless times
