Cliff was an inspiration to me when I started playing and he helped earn the bass a spot in the front light in the 80's. He told his family he would become the best bassist for his brother who had died earlier in Cliff's life, but sadly on tour in Sweden, his dreams were cut much too short.
At shows I play "Pulling Teeth" everytime I can.
I tell people that I am not trying to be Cliff, but I want people to know who he was and still is today.
Rest In Peace Cliff!
