    Metallica has other artists doing their songs.  All goes to charity.  It's called "Blacklist".

    I hope that one day Yo-Yo Ma does Anesthesia...

    wasn't there another cellist that did that for S&M 2?

    Yes and I was not happy with that performance.  Yo-yo Ma should be able to do it much better.  I would hope?

    Too bad it's post-Marie Fredriksson Roxette on this :( But still  kind of cool

    But why did everyone pick Nothing Else Matters?

    Power ballad, not real fans, heavy isn't in.  Take your pick.

    Out of all the participants I am most excited to hear Rodrigo & Gabriela's version of Struggle within.  Those two can play.  Others I'm interested in hearing are Darius Rucker, Volbeat and Portugal the Man.

    Any Metallica cover, you get an automatic percussion upgrade.

    I think he's good,  just a dick.

    Great studio drummer.

    He misses basic beats live. Not fills. Basic time-keeping beats.

    That might be.  I haven't seen them live since 92.

    Zero chance I'm getting that,  but it's a great price for that much media.

    The saddest was the Big 4, when Lars had to follow Lombardo. 

    And there were a few rough spots for Lars at the Yankee Stadium show, though my memory might be a little hazy.

    Was still a great time—that much I can remember.

    The beginning of the end for me.  I can't buy it, I just can't.

    I did own Live shit Binge and Purge that was from this era though.

    Fuck it all, and fucking no regrets.

    They were good back then.

    I was listening to Load last night. Honestly, I still like that record. I love how the band evolved over time. Their look was a tad too contrived and an attempt to look "alternative", but I liked the music.

    That is the album that made them an average rock band.  Sure the songs are catchy but it's the furthest Metallica thing they had done.  No instrumentals, long songs, etc. 

    Hero of The Day does it for me on that album.  I really enjoy that track.

    EDIT:  I sound very harsh.  It's a good album just not what you'd expect and Metallica did that by design.

    Its not cheap, but that's a lot of great live music on it. Wish they would put the Moscow show out in other formats.

    I just went and looked at the material out of curiosity and they have the "riff tapes".  I love hearing a songs progression.  I might buy this just for that.

    Ron McGuvny used to come on a radio station called KNAC for "Mandatory Metallica" in California and bring in all sorts of rough cuts of songs when he was in the band so some things were really raw and it was so cool to hear.

    I'm changing my mind on this.  might be a must have now, lol.

    Flip flopping!

    to me it was kind of a logical next progression after Metallica. They really should have taken the best from Load and ReLoad and made one album out of it. 

    I know i'm in the minority in that I like the material least-liked amongst metallica die hards (load, st anger), but that's alright. I can take the abuse. lol

    I went nuts at the Winnipeg show when King Nothing started. Love that song.
