Default Re: Metallica with Cliff....

I recall hearing that Cliff used to play the others lots of different kinds of music, particularly classical music, and that was likely the main source of a lot of the classical influences you hear in the early albums. After his songwriting was no longer a feature of the band, suddenly there's a lot more southern rock and blues influences and you get Load and Reload.
