Bass Licks on your Grave

The major rager on the four-string motherfucker died 25 years ago today. damn.

I remember so clearly exactly where I was when I heard, who told me...the moment is crystallized in my brain forever. I shed a tear for him that day, and I shed a tear for him today. I loved that man. Rest in peace, Cliff.
