Joel McIver, the author behind "Justice for all, the truth about Metallica" is penning 12 books this year alone, one of them about Cliff Burton.
He is a very good writer and there no detailed forgotten in his stories. In the 23 years since that devastating event when Metallica bassist Cliff Burton died in a buss accident, no one has chronicled Burton's huge talent and achievements in book form. In June 2009 this is set to change with the global publication of To Live Is To Die: The Life And Death Of Metallica's Cliff Burton. The foreword has been provided by Cliff's close friend in Metallica, Kirk Hammett.
