The details of the annual Cliff Burton Day stream, which celebrates the life and legacy of the late Metallica bassist, have been announced.

The online event will take place on February 10, which would’ve been Burton’s 61st birthday. Host Nicholas Gomez will be interviewing Burton’s friends and family, including his sister Connie Burton and Metallica producer Flemming Rasmussen.
