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".

i personally think he's unbelievably over rated. i don't like jason newstead either but his bass solos were better imo.

i dont think burton was given enough time to develop in metallica, MOP was the first album that he really stood out in (in a good way).

He wasn't the greastest thing to happen to them, they would have been big with/without him
#12
His basslines wasn't really that complex apart from on af ew songs. He is overrated like the others "rockstars" who died young like Hendrix, Cobain and Dimebag (not young, but still horribly overrated).

You just gave us some useless heap of information with no direction to discuss in or anything, what the hell is this thread for.

Sounds like the starting of a poorly written biography or something

EDIT: Thanks, yawn
