In Connection with the 20th anniversary of Cliff's death (i.e. 27th September) a memorial stone for Cliff Burton was placed on Saturday 30th September, close to the site of the accident which took his life.

A picture of the stone can be seen here http://www.cliffinourminds.com/ceremony/5.jpg

An interview with James Hetfield in a Swedish newspaper can be found at http://www.cliffinourminds.com.

What can I say...R.I.P Cliff Burton
Warman - 05.10.2006 at 19:29  
I'm gonna go and show my respect someday.
Der Meister - 05.10.2006 at 19:46  
Why did he have to die, I don't know how, but I know Metallica would be alot better today if it wouldn't have happened. Maybe they would still be playing Thrash!

Anyone knows where in Sweden this is?

Anyone knows where in Sweden this is?

I know a Memorial Day in honor of Cliff Burton was held at The Gyllene Rasten venue (http://www.gyllenerasten.se), located in Ljungby, Dörarp, Sweden. And that is near the place of the accident/memorial stone...

BTW More photos can be viewed here.

Oh I thought it was in Norway where he died. I guess I was wrong.

That was an accident...Yeah, maybe they still would be playing trash.

Heh, how much did that cost? 300$? No... it couldnt have... James Hetfield wouldnt drop 300$ for someone else.

R.I.P Cliff
Beto Gtz - 06.10.2006 at 06:37  
Thanks for everything Burton...
PRIMAL FEAR - 06.10.2006 at 08:14  
They should have done this earlier if they really cared for his death...
Eight - 06.10.2006 at 09:52  
Rest in peace, and thank you
Taktsekte - 06.10.2006 at 10:04  
If I ever go to Sweden, I shall definitely visit that place. Thrash Metal would sound much different if he were still alive today.

James Hetfield didn't pay for that, he didn't even know about it until it was finished. It was contributions from fans that paid the stone and it costed about $1250.
kakalokola - 07.10.2006 at 00:29  
come on ppl !! its been 20 fuckin years !!! i think he is already rotted and beeen eaten by worms
Thrash666 - 07.10.2006 at 02:34

I thought this was known a long time ago..
Warman - 07.10.2006 at 19:39  
@: TheSlaughter: NO, was it a joke! Oh my god! Haha, of course I got that, hehe ... I just wanted to tell how much the stone costed and how it was payed.
SETHULHU - 07.10.2006 at 22:18  
sad thing when we see this now and not years before. and even sader when the band didnt do it.

oh well ...
Daru Jericho - 08.10.2006 at 05:02  
Pretty cool stone. And I agree with SETHULHU.

i just dont care, he is a good bassist, but comon on guys its been 20 years its not like that you are related to him or somthing !!!!
BreadGod - 09.10.2006 at 02:54  
I should visit his memorial stone and pay my respects to him sometime in my life. Whenever I play 'Fade To Black', I always remember his work. Why was he taken from this world so soon?
NECURATU - 11.10.2006 at 18:39  
Well grinder...i don't care you don't care. It really has nothing to do with being related and crap. That guys' ideas & work mean a hell of a lot to me and i don't give a rotten apple if it's been 20 or 200 hundred years. Those songs never die you know.

Dude he was making music that people loved and still do. And when a great musician like Clifford dies it leaves a big hole in some peoples hearts. We can at least listen to Orion and some of us (like me) wish that would have lived in the 80's, right?
kakalokola - 17.10.2006 at 01:53  
whatever !! but i think if he is atill alive, !! he will be just as normal as jason was ...its just the tragedy that makes ppl love him more,,,..
Gothya - 23.10.2006 at 02:57  
i'm sure he would be a lot better than jason, cause newsted is good bassist but cliff was really great, you must see those videos when cliff is playing the bass, man he's GREAT, he's solos are awesome, play with a 4string bass all those great songs and making them sound great, not anyone; i love metallica, but i guess if cliff were alive it would be another song; Cliff Burton was a bass god; R.I.P Cliff Burton
ThrashMetal_Rulz - 14.01.2007 at 02:12  
It's a shame that Metallica had to lose him. He was probably the most talented member they ever had. R.I.P. Cliff Burton.
AlexCromlech - 27.03.2007 at 13:00  
Yea all I have to say is R.I.P Cliff , the greatest bassit that ever lived, the true Master Of Puppets.
Bitch Boy - 28.03.2007 at 07:45  
This stone is really nice. I agree with those who said that this took a long time to be released and Metallica should have done it.
