Metallica has revealed that their legendary late bassist Cliff Burton will be honored with a day in his name. His hometown of Castro Valley, California has deemed February 10 Cliff Burton Day and the news came after fans started a petition on change.org.

"It's official! The Board of Supervisors from Alameda County has just proclaimed February 10th, 2018, which would have been Cliff's 56th birthday, 'Cliff Burton Day.' Thanks to all of the fans who got behind this initiative. We love that he remains so revered," the band says.

Burton appeared on the band's classic releases Kill 'Em All, Ride The Lightning and Master Of Puppets and co-wrote the tracks "Ride The Lightning", "For Whom The Bell Tolls", "Fade To Black", "Creeping Death" and "Master Of Puppets." He died in a bus accident in Sweden in 1986.
