Metallica Honor Late Cliff Burton With Free 1984 Show Download

    A true Metallica fan will always shed a tear or two for Cliff Burton, the band’s original bassist who tragically lost his life in 1986. Yesterday was the twenty-sixth anniversary of his passing, and to mark the day Metallica posted the above photo of Burton on their Facebook page with the words “We miss you.” A later post offered a rare gift to fans: “While you’re remembering Cliff on the 26th anniversary of his passing, give a listen to this free download from the Ride the Lightning tour.” Indeed, Metallica has allowed fans to download a complete 1984 show from Toulouse, France that features a number of their best songs (along with a bad-ass Burton bass solo). Grab it here.
