BLACK­ENED

Kerrang! (UK) - - Metallica -

On the night of Septem­ber 26, 1986, Me­tal­lica were trav­el­ling through Swe­den while on tour for Mas­ter Of Pup­pets, when their bus skid­ded off the road. Cliff Bur­ton, asleep in one of the bunks, was thrown from a win­dow and killed as the bus fell. He was just 24. Dev­as­tated at the loss of their friend, Me­tal­lica bravely chose to con­tinue, and a mere six weeks later they drafted in Jason New­sted to be their new bassist. A new al­bum fea­tur­ing the new kid emerged: …And Jus­tice For All. The al­bum’s ul­tra-fid­dly open­ing track, which he co-wrote, showed his im­por­tance to ’Tal­lica’s fu­ture, too.
