Cliff Burton Day offers a virtual celebration of the life and music of Metallica's departed bassist

February 10th would have been the departed bassist for Metallica, Cliff Burton's 59th birthday.

The beloved musician and integral member of the forefathers of thrash would tragically lose his life at just 24 years old, an unfortunate victim of a horrific bus accident while Metallica was on tour in support of their seminal Master of Puppets album.

Celebrating his birthday and the impact that Burton had both personally and professionally, Cliff Burton Day will exist as a virtual gathering for fans across the globe.

Host by film director Nicholas Gomez and the virtual broadcast via TWITCH will feature former Metallica cohorts Fred Cotton and James McDaniel of Spastik Children,
