Their tour bus crashed and it fell on top of him. ACtually, He and Kirk Hammet drew straws to see who would sleep in top bunk. If Hammett would have gotten that bnk, Hammet would be dead and Burton still alive.

Go to the only Metallica thread. But yes. Cliff Burton was the 2nd bassist (Ron doesnt count, he was in for like 2 shows) and what Plus_The_Bear said is correct.

I dont wish Hammett were dead, I wish Burton hadn't died. But yes, Burton had a ot more talent than Kirk ever had/will ever have.

A recent study shows that 92% of all teens have moved on to rap music. Put this in your profile if you are one of the 8% who stayed with the real music.

I wish Mustaine would come back and Cliff would come back from the dead and knock some Fuc.kin sense into James and Lars and then we'd have another Kill Em' All

It was actually cards they drew (highest card wins top bunk), and Cliff drew the ace of spades.... An omen of death. Completely tragic..... the writing talent of Metallica practically died with him.

If Mustaine hadn't left Metallica, we would have Metallica and no Megadeth. And since I think Megadeth>Metallica, I am glad for that.

they drew cards, burton got the ace of spades, they hit black ice and flipped in a ditch. burton fell out his window and the bus landed on him, with his feet sticking out like the witch in the wizard of oz, when they got a wrecker to pick up the bus it fell on him again. it was later found out that the driver was insanely drunk, and now it is a law that tourbuses have to have shatter proof windows or boards over windows where people bunk. and it was in sweden in sptember 86 if you care

It was a straw, hence the song "The Shortest Straw".

I think bo and greety were right, all the crap threads are always at the top.

think about it they basically drew cards for survival, bummer. Their old stuff is best so its best that the bassist didnt die.
