'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 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
