Metallica's 2nd bassist, and one of the greatest metal bassists of all time. Along with Steve Harris of Iron Maiden, he was one of the first metal bass players to play complex bass lines. He also liked to play loud and often soloed (with distortion, and sometimes wah). Because of this, some people have reffered to him as a "lead bassist".

He co-wrote several great metallica songs, including Master of Puppets and Orion (which was played at this funeral), and composed most of To Live is To Die, which was recorded as a tribute to Burton in metallicas ..And Justice for All album.

Cliff died September 27, 1986 after metallica's tour bus overturned in rural Swedan.
RIP Cliff Burton.

A character in Lovecraft's tale "The Call of Cthulhu". Cthulhu is a monstrous entity who lies "dead but dreaming" in the city of R'lyeh, a place of non-Euclidean madness presently (and mercifully) sunken below the depths of the Pacific Ocean. Cthulhu appears in various monstrous and demonic forms in early myths of the human race. Racial memory preserves Him as humanity's most basic nightmare. Cthulhu is the high priest of the Great Old Ones, unnatural alien beings who ruled the Earth before humanity formed, worshipped as gods by some misguided people. It is said that They will return, causing worldwide insanity and mindless violence before finally displacing humanity forever.
"That bitch had some Cthulhu eyes."

Drummer for the largest metal band ever, Metallica. Takes a lot of heat for the napster incident. Also gets shit on a lot by people who say he sucks a lot at drums, without thinking if the fact that Lars never said he was good, or talks like he knows what the hell he's doing anyways. He probably doesnt care anyways. He is making truckloads of money playing for Metallica, and he has a hot doctor wife. Does life get any better? I submit that it does not!
-Who plays drums for Metallica?
-Why, Lars Ulrich plays the drums for Metallica.
-Ah, Thank You
