On Thursday, September 27, Metallica
paid tribute to their late bassist, Cliff Burton
, on the 26th anniversary of his passing.
Burton died in a September 27, 1986 tour bus accident in Sweden while Metallica were on a European trek to promote the newly-released "Master Of Puppets
of Flotsam And Jetsam
was brought in on bass and remained with the band for more than a decade; Robert Trujillo
has played bass for Metallica since 2003.
The group posted a photo of Burton (see above), and followed that up with a second message: "you're remembering Cliff on the 26th anniversary of his passing, give a listen to this free download from the 'Ride The Lightning' tour.
The November 22, 1984 show, featuring Burton, was recorded at Le Riff in Toulose, France.
