A 46-second video clip of the Sept. 30, 2006 unveiling of the memorial stone dedicated to late METALLICA bassist Cliff Burton at the Gyllene Rasten restaurant/bar in Dörarp (outside Ljungby), Sweden has been posted online at It was on September 27, 1986 — 20 years ago — that Burton died in a tragic bus accident in Sweden, just over the road from where Gyllene Rasten is located.

Johan Mörling, one of the organizers of the Cliff Burton "memorial day" which was held in Dörarp, told BLABBERMOUTH.NET, "As you know, I have mailed you about the 'Cliff In Our Minds' ( project, where METALLICA fans raised money to finally raise a memorial stone for Cliff Burton at Gyllene Rasten in Dörarp, Sweden where Cliff Burton was killed in a bus crash. This project started for about two years ago by me, Erik Lysén and Tony Asplund along with a great number of fans. This was held yesterday, and it was a big success. There was over 300 people at site at this event, the stone was uncovered and bands where playing. The bands who played where: AGE OF FURY, THE HAZE, KILLERSQUEEZE and MORBID INSULTOR. METALLICA themselves have heard about this and are very grateful."
