Late Metallica member and iconic bassist Cliff Burton is being honored by his hometown of Castro Valley, California as they've officially proclaimed February 10, 2018 (what would have been Burton's 56th birthday) to be "Cliff Burton Day."

The move was precipitated by a Change.org petition, which refers to Burton as "a Castro Valley legend" and has garnered more than 5,000 signatures.

Metallica shared the news along with an image of the proclamation via Twitter:
