Metal Allegiance Honor Metallica’s Cliff Burton + Late Bassist’s Father Before Launching Into ‘Seek & Destroy’
We had the honor of presenting and live streaming Metal Allegiance’s ‘Fallen Heroes’ gig over NAMM weekend in Anaheim. For the gig’s grand finale, the all-star band performed Metallica’s “Seek & Destroy” after inviting the father of late Metallica bassist Cliff Burton, Ray Burton, onto the stage.
Earlier in the show, Ray Burton presented Metal Allegiance bassist Mark Menghi with Cliff’s actual bass for the band’s cover of “Disposable Heroes.” Menghi grabbed Burton’s bass once again for “Seek & Destroy,” which featured a mass of legends like Chris Jericho, Chuck Billy, Marty Friedman, Mike Portnoy, David Ellefson, Gary Holt, Charlie Benante and more.
Check out the tribute to Cliff and Ray Burton along with Metal Allegiance’s performance of “Seek & Destroy” in the videos above and below!
