Poll: Vote for Best Metallica Bassist

Wondering what kind of a chance Newsted, McGovney or Truijillo stand against Burton.

Bring on the debate!

I voted Cliff mainly for his songwriting contributions. To be honest, this thread is kinda pointless, because most people are going to vote for Cliff.

Read post above.

Still want to see whether anybody likes Trujillo or Newsted over him.

Cliff.

He brought more to the band musically. While Newstead and Trujillo are both good players they didn't have as great of an impact on the material they've done with Metallica as Cliff did.

I just wonder what Metallica would be like now if Cliff hadn't died? How their sound would have progressed?
