February 10, 1962
Clifford Lee Burton was a bass guitarist best known for his
work with the American heavy metal band Metallica from 1982 until 1986.
As a bassist he was known for his unique style, which made heavy use of
distortion and effects (several of which are usually associated with
non-bass guitars), best exemplified on his signature piece,
"(Anesthesia) Pulling Teeth".
He was asleep when, according to the driver, the band's tour bus ran
over a patch of black ice, skidded off of the road, and flipped onto the
grass in Ljungby Municipality, near D�rarp in rural southern Sweden.
Burton was thrown through the window of the bus, which fell on top of
him and killed him. He died September 27, 1986 at the age of 24.
