A two-minute video clip of the Sept. 30, 2006 unveiling of the memorial stone dedicated Cliff Burton at the Gyllene Rasten restaurant/bar can be viewed below. It was on September 27, 1986 that Burton died in a tragic bus accident in Sweden, just over the road from where Gyllene Rasten is located. (Note: The memorial stone was moved several months ago so it would not suffer from the snow and the harsh weather during the winter in Sweden.)
