Metallica coming to St. Louis
I'm really looking forward to the new album. This is an opportunity for the band to get back to their roots and quit doing Bob Seger covers. WTF was that all about? Really!
I still remember buying "Ride The Lightning" and putting it in the old cassette player and having my head completely sawed off by a type of metal I had never heard before. And then "Master Of Puppets" came along and changed the game. Maybe not as drastic a shift in the landscape as Nirvana's "Nevermind", but it was an upheaval in the metal sound.
