There is a great blog post here from Kev Brock about why Metallica deserves the respect they have/should have. I’m a long time Metallica fan, who has meat the band on a couple of occasions, once as a fan at a Meet & Greet and the second time last year at their Adelaide show as a guest and then was priviledged to be invited to their private end of tour party in Melbourne. They were warm, welcoming and very friendly guys an attitude that permeated through their whole organisation. I wish I could have been at the Yankee Stadium Big 4 show, it would have been epic.
Metallica 4 LIFE!!!
