El emotivo mensaje de Metallica tras la muerte de Ray Burton, padre de Cliff Burton
visitas

Metallica utilizó sus redes sociales para despedirse de Ray Burton, padre del fallecido bajista de la banda, Cliff.

El domingo 19 de enero la hija de Ray, Connie, anunci√≥ que su padre hab√≠a fallecido de neumon√≠a el mi√©rcoles pasado a los 94 a√Īos.

El hombre se había vuelto sumamente cercano a la agrupación, especialmente luego que su hijo muriera trágicamente en 1986 cuando el bus que los transportaba en su gira por Europa se accidentara en plena ruta.

En su cuenta de Instagram, el conjunto norteamericano se√Īal√≥: “Durante 38 a√Īos, tuvimos la suerte de tener la energ√≠a, sabidur√≠a y la luz de Ray en nuestras vidas. Su eterna juventud con su impulso, positividad y sonrisa implacable fueron incre√≠blemente poderosos y tremendamente honestos”, agreg√≥ la agrupaci√≥n.

It is with incredible sorrow that we said farewell to Cliff‚Äôs dad Ray Burton last week. For 38 years, we were lucky enough to have the energy, wisdom and light of Ray in our lives. His eternal youth with his drive, positivity and relentless smile were both incredibly powerful and stirringly honest. From coast to coast and overseas too, Ray‚Äôs beaming face would regularly greet us, offering warmth and anchor to our travels, and when it came to the entire Metallica family, band, crew and fans, he viewed us all as his own. That he has passed away leaves an indefinable feeling of sadness and loss, but equally, we know Ray wouldn‚Äôt want us ‚Äúmoping around on our darn keisters‚ÄĚ for too long. So, in honor of him, and the kind of man he was, we also want to truly celebrate the 94 years of life Ray gave everyone, knowing in certainty that a glint of his light, wisdom and energy will always be with us all wherever we go. We love you Ray, Rest In Peace Photos by @rosshalfin & @joeydabox Video by @brettmurrayphotography

‚ÄúDe costa a costa y tambi√©n en el extranjero, la cara radiante de Ray nos saludaba regularmente, ofrec√≠a calidez y anclaje a nuestros viajes, y cuando se trataba de toda la familia, banda, equipo y fan√°ticos de Metallica, nos ve√≠a a todos como suyos propio”, precisaron.

“El hecho de que haya fallecido deja un sentimiento indefinible de tristeza y p√©rdida, pero igualmente, sabemos que Ray no querr√≠a que nos qued√°ramos deprimidos en nuestros malditos traseros por mucho tiempo‚ÄĚ, sostuvieron.

Finalmente, en la publicaci√≥n indicaron que en honor a √©l, y el tipo de hombre que era, “tambi√©n queremos celebrar verdaderamente los 94 a√Īos de vida que Ray dio a todos, sabiendo con certeza que un destello de su luz, sabidur√≠a y energ√≠a siempre estar√° con nosotros donde quiera que vayamos. Te amamos Ray, descansa en paz‚ÄĚ.

Cabe se√Īalar que a trav√©s de la misma red social, los integrantes de la banda dedicaron mensajes individuales a Ray, los que est√°n acompa√Īados con una serie de im√°genes.

In my 55 years of existing on this earth I've met so many wonderful people, and not so wonderful people. In recent times, and most definitely since I've been in Metallica, I've been asked who is an inspiration to me and/or who do I aspire to be like, and my reply is, ‚ÄúI want to be like Mr. Ray Burton!‚ÄĚ Ray is the father we all want, or need to have; his positive energy, and support for how and what we do is a powerful gift that he blessed us with. Always smiling, and always telling it like it is; someone to learn from. Ray's love for all styles of music was passion driven, telling me about various big band jazz artists from his youth, sharing his thoughts on how and why these musicians were so special. I'll always remember him telling my son, "You practicing, you playing piano Tye, remember that's very important for your music; Cliff played piano all the time." My family, the Metallica family, and the world will miss Ray Burton, that goes without saying. Ray was a warrior, and would want us to face life the way he has, with that desire to be the best you can be from the inside out, stay humble, and keep smiling! We love you, and we will miss you Ray.
