(Classic Rock) Lars Ulrich has paid tribute to Metallica's late bassist Cliff Burton on the 30th anniversary of his tragic death. Burton was 24 when Metallica's tour bus crashed in Sweden on September 27, 1986. He was killed in the accident.

Ulrich says that he thinks of his friend most days, but anniversaries are more painful than other days. The drummer tells Metal Hammer: "He's continuously a part of our legacy. There are days when I still think about him. Today is a, I hate the word 'anniversary', but today is a more relevant Cliff Day because of the date.

"I'm always aware of the date. I think that, when you've been around for 35 years like we have, and you actually sit down and go through everything and plant flags on the calendar, there always so many anniversaries, but obviously, September 27, 2016, feels like a very significant date. I'm thinking about him all the time." Read more here.
