This weekend marked the 7th annual Cliff Burton Day, celebrating the late Metallica legend and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, as officially declared by Cliff’s hometown of Castro Valley and the greater Alameda County. Cliff would have turned 62 on February 10th, 2024. Continuing with tradition, host Nicholas Gomez spoke with Cliff’s family and friends, about their memories of Cliff. Watch the tribute here.
Interviews in 2023 included; Connie Burton, Lou Martin, Flemming Rasmussen of Sweet Silence Studios, Mike Overton of Trauma, John Gallagher of Raven, Deen Dell of Vio-Lence, Brian Lew and Harald Oimoen from the movie/ book Murder in the Front Row, Photographer Gene Ambo, Castro Valley home town friends Joe Cabral, Judd of Judd’s Barn, and Tony Martin. Their stories and memories of Cliff are not to be missed and are too in-depth to be shared in just one broadcast. Check back in at youtube.com/gomezgrip each Friday in February for a full-length interview from each of our guests.
