  • A couple years ago I was going to back off and actually thought about retiring, but it keeps calling me back, and I'm going to keep going back as long as it calls me.

About Cliff Burton[edit]

  • He is the Hendrix of bass for his ground breaking style.
  • I remember when they came to Phoenix one time, I went to the show. I bought a T-Shirt... Wore it all the time and stood up there in front of Cliff and was just blown away by the way he played. I mean he was just naturally gifted, a creative genius. That's what his mother told me.
