Today would’ve been the Major Rager Cliff Burton’s 55th birthday. Let that sink in for a bit. Just imagine if he were still around and cranking out Metallica music all theses years.
Cliff's Dad - Ray Burton - is so involved in preserving his son's legacy. He attended the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) Show in Anaheim, CA three weeks ago and did a Meet and Greet with fans. Just a amazing what he does at the age of 92. Mr. Burton has an amazing Facebook page Cliff Burton Family where he posts various personal photos of Cliff, and does live streams as well. Such a sweet, awesome guy.
The two more recent videos had Mr. Burton sharing some of Cliff's personal vinyl collection. I've added links to all three parts. Definitely worth kickin' back and watching.

One of my favorite photos from Mr. Burton's FB page is this one he posted Sept 16, 2016. Tell me that's not a friggin' badass photo right there.
Blast that old school Metallica LOUD so he can hear it!! We miss ya, Cliff!!
