    ended on this day 28 fucking years ago and changed a band forever. Time to spark one up and go back in time. Maybe I'll throw on some Misfits afterwards.

    EZ-Street was an American rock band formed in the late 1970s and broke up in 1982.

    History
    The band formed in Hayward, California in the late 70's. The band included future Metallica bassist Cliff Burton, future Faith No More guitarist "Big" Jim Martin and future Faith No More/Ozzy Osbourne drummer Mike "Puffy" Bordin, all of whom were still in high school. Additional members included singer Kevin Costa and guitarist Danny Magalhaes. EZ-Street was Jim Martin's band, and Cliff wasn't very into it. From what he said, they were sort of a bar band, doing basically 70's rock covers. Bottom line was that he wasn't very interested in doing that kind of music.[1] The band finished fourth in the 1979 Hayward Area "Battle of the Bands" where their three-song set included a rousing cover of "Rebel Rebel." The band often changed drummers.

    Martin and Burton would continue to perform together after EZ-Street disbanded under the name "Agents of Misfortune."

    6th grade, my buddy had the tape of cliff em all. I'd never seen anything like it. I bought it and watched it so many times. My mom wanted to throw up when she would hear Mustaine chime in...."how would you fuckheads like to meet Cliff Burton?"

    It should've been Kirk. Sorry, Kirk, you're great, but they could've managed fine with another guitar player. Cliff's loss left a giant hole in the band and they never recovered. Garage Days was fun and Justice was really good, but they just couldn't regain their footing. They really had some momentum going when Cliff died. It's like they spit out the last few shards of greatness and said "We don't know what to do now. So let's just become MTV darlings". I honestly feel Metallica wouldn't have gone pussy as long as Cliff was in the band. Maybe he and the band would've parted ways at some point and then they'd go all pussy, but Cliff wouldn't have stood for it. He was hardcore.
