It's our 100th episode! For this special occasion we're happy to share with you our extensive interview with Ray Burton. Many of you already know that Ray is the father of late bassist and perhaps the most beloved character in the entire Metallica saga, the legendary Cliff Burton. Ray was so generous with his time and stories about what Cliff was like as a child, the early days of Metallica, the rise of the band and preserving Cliff's memory all these years later.
We'd like to thank our friends Aaron Ginther and Kaycee Burton for facilitating this interview. And, of course, Ray Burton for his time and hospitality in letting us all peek into the fascinating world of Cliff Burton. What an honor.
