(Classic Rock) Metallica bassist Robert Trujillo has revealed that his bass intro to new song ManUNkind is his personal tribute to the late Cliff Burton. Trujillo says hie opening part on the track on new Metallica album Hardwired... To Self-Destruct was written with Burton in mind - and he has also described Burton's father Ray as "like an uncle" to him.

The bassist tells Aggressive Tendencies: "There is an intro, an interlude, to a song call ManUNkind on this album and I'm doing a finger picking moment and James is doing a nice, simple, melodic tasty guitar presence on the piece.

"When I had written that, at least my part of it, I was definitely thinking about Cliff. In a way, that to me is a tip of the hat to Cliff Burton and the spirit of Cliff. If you hear that little thing before ManUNkind, for me personally, that was with Cliff in mind." Read more here.
