Metallica Begin Selling First-Ever Cliff Burton Biography
Written by Classic Rock contributor Joel McIver, you can now get your hands on a copy of the first-ever Cliff Burton biography.
“I’m deeply honored that Kirk spoke to me for the Cliff Burton biography,” McIver told Blabbermouth.net earlier this year. “We talked about the rollercoaster ride of Metallica’s early career which he and Cliff experienced, from the time that both men joined the band in early 1983 until Cliff’s death three and a half years later. The impact that Burton had on the rest of Metallica, both musically and as an example of how to stick to your principles in the music industry, was profound — and Kirk provided a perspective on that impact which couldn’t have come from anywhere else.”
‘To Live Is To Die: The Life & Death Of Metallica’s Cliff Burton is available in all good book stores now.
