It definitely should have been done earlier. Cliff is just as important as the other tragically lost icons of music. What a genius he was. Better late than never though. RIP Cliff

Damn, it only took 20 yrs...what an incredible bassist...I guess I feel lucky that I was able to see him perform shortly before his untimely death...

i agree, its about time he gets a memorial. i think it took so long just because of the fact that he wasnt with metallica when they hit it big and therefor was never given the chance of fame like many other legendary bass players. without burton, there be no metallica. with out a doubt my favorite bass player of all time. RIP Cliff

S-hit of the elderly ladies, i'm not into Metallica that much you f***ing douchebag. And i know who Cliff Burton is you ashole. Guess what? I've known him all along, i just forgot about him, you fag. He died back in the 80s yeah i heard about once, douche. But since the dead of Dimebag and others great musicians like Randy Rhoads i've forgot about him. By the way as you can see all the way till now after almost twenty years after his dead, they're giving him tribute.

Cliff is very underrated, they never gave him much spotlight after his dead, and also the fact that i was like 3 or 4 years old when he died in the accident in europe. So shut that cum-filled mouth you pathetic little sh**.
