“Happy birthday Cliff! This pic was taken at the Marquee in London circa March 1984 right around the time we got arrested.”

Anthrax drummer Charlie Benante wrote:

“Happy birthday to the one and only #cliffburton . He would always come out and headbang during our set. It would always push me harder and make me happy! The famous #pancakes story came from this tour . I always thought Cliff was an artist, a musician, an original ( he wore bell bottoms in a tight pants world) , I think he made that difference in those first 3 albums -miss you bro – Happy Birthday !”
