Seeing Metallica open for Ozzy July 1986 On The Master of Puppets tour. I was staying at the hotel at Alpine Valley and saw a tour bus pull up outside my window. James and Kirk went inside to get a few drinks and Cliff Burton and Lars hung out on the steps of the bus and talked to us few fans that happened to walk up. They were really cool. Lars was showing us a big dent in their tour bus from a golf ball that hit right under the window. I went golfing that day at Alpine Valley before the show and happened to be the guy, who had one hell of a wicked slice, that hit their bus and caused the dent. I didn’t admit to it!
Cliff died 2 months later and, in my opinion, they never put an album out after his death that beat any of their first 3 Albums.
