Cliff Burton | This Day In Music

Written by on September 27, 2021


27 Sept 1986, Metallica bass player Cliff Burton was crushed to death after the bands tour bus crashed between Stockholm and Copenhagen. During a European tour members from the band drew cards for the most comfortable bunk on the tour bus, Burton had won the game with an Ace of Spades and was asleep when the tour bus ran over a patch of black ice and skidded off of the road. He was thrown through the window of the bus, which fell on top of him. https://www.thisdayinmusic.com/stairway-to-heaven/cliff-burton/
