Cliff’s funeral took place on September 27, 1986 at the Chapel of the Valley in Castro Valley. One of the pieces of music played that day was Orion, featuring Cliff’s most famous bassline. A two-page spread in Kerrang! from Jonny and Marsha Zazula, the group’s former managers, read ‘The Ultimate Musician, The Ultimate Headbanger, The Ultimate Loss, A Friend Forever’. When the band stayed with the Zazulas, in New Jersey in 1983, the bassist would help put their young daughter, Rikki Lee, to bed before reading her a bedtime story.
