He rocks the bass with the skill of Eddie Van Halen on a six-string here. Technical skills are just brilliant - Shake_n_Bake13
Thunderstruck was recorded in January 1990 and AC/DC's bassist is Cliff William, not Cliff Burton. Cliff Burton (Metallica Bassist) died in September 1986 so he can't record a song after his death. R.I.P. - malamJONES
My official apologies for putting Cliff Burton instead of Cliff Williams. Obviously I knew that. It was a careless mistake that I should have caught - Shake_n_Bake13
There are a lot of reasons this song is so adrenalizing. The powerful bass line is one of them. - Shake_n_Bake13
