father figure

earlier this year, the Library of Congress inducted Metallica’s Master Of Puppets into its registry. now, the band has a new book coming out which explores the recording process of the album as well as the tour that followed. the 1986 tour was a major turning point for the group both professionally and personally, and the memories of it remain etched into the minds of music historians and fans alike. but of all the contributors to this book, there is one who stands out the most and that’s Mr. Ray Burton, father of the late Cliff Burton. if there was ever a man who truly loved his family*, it’s him.



*you’re going to want the Kleenex.
