Happy 30th Birthday to METALLICA's Master of Puppets
On this day, 30 years ago, I was but a two-year-old and Metallica released one of the most classic albums in heavy metal history, Master of Puppets. The album was the last to feature Cliff Burton on the bass guitar and it's the album that some Metallica elitists call Metallica's "last good album." (not me though).
Rolling Stone has a great new feature about the album where they interviewed all the living members of the band and the producer of the album where they tell great stories about the process. Check that out here. Metallica shared this video of them playing the title track live some 30 years ago…
Happy 30th Master of Puppets!

We wanted to know what your favorite track is off the album? We're pretty sure it's the title track. Fun fact: the title track was Cliff Burton's favorite Metallica tune.
Here's a cool gallery posted by my buddy Ed Rivadavia, who has an original pressing of the album, including the merch insert:
