Cliff Burton’s father Ray is featured in an unboxing video for the upcoming Metallica Master Of Puppets book. Metallica: Back To The Front explores the making of the band’s third album and documents the Damage, Inc tour that followed. Written by Matt Taylor, it’s due for release on September 13 while a Collector’s Edition will be available two weeks earlier on August 30 at Metallica.com.
Metallica bassist Cliff Burton died in a tour bus crash on September 27, 1986, in Sweden. His father Ray contributes to the book. Flicking through the book and finding images he had never seen before, Ray Burton says: “I just received this marvellous heavy package. That guy Matt is really thorough.” Check out the video, above.
Metallica said: “We’re honoured that Cliff Burton’s dad Ray sat down for an extensive interview. Faith No More guitarist Jim Martin and drummer Mike Bordin and Diamond Head’s Brian Tatler spoke with Matt about their memories of those crazy times and, of course, you, the fans who were at those shows gave us an amazing view of your memories and experiences.” Watch the video here.
