anyone considering going to this fest?
it might be fun ...
The idea that Lou Reed (hell, Metallica themselves at this point) are *allowed* to do anything other than work at the local burger joint depresses the shit out of me. Just once...JUST ONCE...I want one of these types of douchebags to publish an essay detailing how they just happened to be in the right place at the right time and they are, in fact, utterly devoid of skill, talent or education.
they should have recorded that album and bury it in their vault to be released after their death/retirement. it would have become a classic.
at this point i doubt metallica will ever die/retire
so Metallica is out in Europe playing the entire Black Album ... with James wearing an ironic hellmike like thrasher vest ...
gotta give it to these guys though ... they are freaking road warriors.
to be fair that looks pretty bad ass
and not ironic either
it might actually be his genuine vest from the early 80s??? judging by all the old-ass bands??? but more probably its something their PR department carefully stitched together
I've never seen him wear a patch west in any of the old photos, so no, I think it's a newly made "Kutte".
Yeah that looks pretty spotless. Still cool though.
The ironic part is that it was chosen to appear on a tour celebrating the black album.
Ive been listening to "Metallica" in the car for a couple weeks
they played Escape for the first time ever live ... this past weekend in Nu Jeysey
I was mega psyched when I read that (for some reason I STILL get like that after being disappointed for more years than I remember) but this just sounds like a bad metallica cover band
it was a pretty bad rendition and rather limp ... and oddly Lars seemed to be most on top of it.
well to be fair it is a bad song so under those circumstances i think they did alright
i was at this show ... an 18 y/o lurch ... what a fucking day
re: Escape; Wtf didn't they play that song when they were young? This is ass!
i saw some comment on youtube (not sure how much truth there is to it) that they wrote that song at the request of the record co. to have a more "accessible" song for radio as Fade was deemed to dark (the one the band wanted to go to radio)
so the band is not a big fan of Escape because of that . ... kickass song me thinks.
Ride is really my fave record overall ... but my fave songs are on MoP/
btw Jerry ... did you ever hear the Gojira Escape cover?
pro shot entire Ride performance from past weekend
The only thing worse than James' voice is Kirk's sloppy-ass playing. You can tell he's not even trying to dial it in. Lars is actually the best musician in that performance, thinking he's been taking lessons finally.
lars ulrich plays better than usual but someone should tell him that china cymbals are more effective as accents and not for playing whole fucking songs on
