Anthrax Bassist Remembers Last Moment With Cliff Burton: 'Maybe I'll See You Tomorrow'
Anthrax bassist Frank Bello shared an emotional story about his final encounter with late Metallica bassist Cliff Burton.

As Frank told Loudwire, Anthrax were supporting the metal titans on tour at the time, allowing them to see each other on a daily basis.

"After our show and Metallica's show, we'd go into catering and get something for the bus to eat," the musician kicked off. "So we'd all wind up in there, sit down, maybe have coffee and talk about the show or something.

"So Cliff and I would do that, and the last thing we would say to each other in a joking way [was] 'Maybe I'll see you tomorrow' and 'Maybe I will.' So I said - I started this one the last night Cliff was alive - I said, 'Hey Cliff, maybe I'll see you tomorrow.' And as he's leaving the room - the last thing - he goes, 'Maybe I will.'

"That's what's in my head right now. That's, swear to God ... God rest his soul. He was awesome in every way."
