Well at least in Alameda County California. Metallica took to Facebook today to announce that February 10th will officially be known as “Cliff Burton Day” in remembrance of their fallen bandmate. Read the official statement below.
IT’S OFFICIAL! The Board of Supervisors from Alameda County has just proclaimed February 10, 2018, which would have been Cliff’s 56th birthday, “Cliff Burton Day.”
As many of you know, Cliff was born and raised in Castro Valley and was the reason we high-tailed it to the Bay Area back in ’83.
Thanks to all of the fans who got behind this initiative and we’d like to send our appreciation and respect to all of you who continue to honor Cliff in your own personal ways. We love that he remains so revered.

Though many of us are not part of the 1.6 million people that make up the Alameda County population, we can still adopt February 10th as “Cliff Burton Day.” Burton was featured on the first 3 Metallica Studio albums, Kill em All, Ride the Lightning and Master of Puppets. Burton was tragically killed on September 27, 1987, at the age of 24 in Southern Sweden, after a bus crash, while the band was supporting the release of Master of Puppets.
