It occurs to me that I've never heard him talk before.
He didn't sound anything like I thought he would.
I like him. He almost reminds me of Dave Grohl. He's so nice, it's hard to believe that he's such a beast with music.

he's very polite and soft spoken. Bit of a nerd, loves comics and old monster movies and stuff.

Seeing him playing on the Cliff Em All VHS is why I started playing guitar. It was many years before I appreciated James really, all I cared about was lead guitar when I started.

Him, Yngwie, Alex Skolnick, Mustaine, ... all that crazy fast over the top shit really rung my bell when I was a kid.

Been waiting for this for months
I'm not a huge Metallica fan. I am familiar with some of their music. I once taught myself to play "Enter Sandman." However, I really enjoyed watching that video. I had youtube open in another tab and when he would mention a key song. I'd pause the video and play it on youtube. I don't think that I had ever seen the "One" video. I actually think it's pretty cool. They (Metallica) have definitely influenced acts that I do enjoy, like Five Finger Death Punch. I guess I will have to do a deep dive into their library and see what comes up (I hope I have more success than I did when I listened to the entire Nine Inch Nails library and didn't find a song I liked).

Well... being a Subaru with a back seat, it'll never be more than 1/4 of the way down, even in the fast lane on the freeway.

Geeez I swear Subaru drivers were put on this planet for no other reason than to fuck up traffic.

Ride the Lightning, Master of Puppets, & ...And Justice For All,... are fantastic records and a very cool progression in songwriting skills and guitar chops.

After that they went to Enter Sandman and changed their sound dramatically.

The first album Kill Em All is a lot of fun, it's fast and raw.

Though if I had to pick out just a few to recommend it would be those three albums, and probably Garage Days Re-Revisted. It's a short 5 song EP of cover songs, but it's a very cool one.

:thumb: cheers.

I still really like the Black album... Load was where they really went downhill for me.
But I do have and like Garage Inc, including most of their more recent cover tunes.
When I was in college, I always wanted to "rock up" Turn the Page, but I couldn't quite get the sound that I wanted.
Metallica flat out nailed exactly what was buried in my head that I never quite pulled out.

It's too bad they blew the video concept on "Wherever I May Roam"... the stripper thing just didn't fit the song.
Actually, the stripper theme would have worked better with "Wherever"... the lyrics don't specifically mention anything specific to a band. That song could have been about a musician, biker, farm worker, or a 1970's era IBM employee.
Turn the Page is pretty specific.
