Earlier this week, one of the most famous Rock’n’Roll Fathers Ray Burton, Father of the late Metallica bassist Cliff Burton, sat down with Gibson’s Mark Agnesi  to reminisce about Cliff Burton’s musical history and what it means to be the Dad of a child who shows interest in pursuing a career in music.
