'Cliff Burton will be honored with a "Cliff Burton Day" on February 10 in Castro Valley, California. The proclamation comes after METALLICA fans started a Change.org petition and tallied thousands of signatures to recognize the band's late bassist.
Burton was born in Castro Valley. His life was tragically cut short at the age of 24 in a tour bus crash on September 27, 1986 in Sweden.' - via Blabbermouth
