I have caught Lars in various interviews/openings over the years and against all of my preconceived notions I have had to admit that almost every time I have found him to be engaging, bright, and excellent with divergent types of people.....except in the doc they made where he appeared to be a rat douchebucket. I despise his drumming, but I remember liking his artwork. :noclue:

You're right, he is a bright and good guy. I was too hard on him, perhaps because of things like the doc and the video below.

£105 to see Metallica, STANDING in the UK next year at a football stadium. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

You're having a giraffe. What's more annoying is Ghost are supporting and I want to see them. But 105 quid, Christ on a bike, no chance.

I read somewhere recently that they are shilling whiskey now. Really strange for so many reasons....one is a drunk who very publicly addressed the issue and the generational money makes me think they are very bored and in a very distant ivory tower.

If I had to chose my favorite Metallica album i'd probably go with Master of Puppets.

Secretly Recorded Phone Call Offers Window Into How Live Nation Helped Metallica and Other Artists Place Tickets Directly on Resale Market

https://www.spin.com/2019/07/secretly-r ... le-market/

Can’t be good PR for Metallica but the latest in decades-long ticket scams by Ticketmaster/LiveNation barely moves the outrage monitor at this point in the game. There's decades of history of managers, promoters, etc finding new ways to scalp their client/band's tickets, especially when it comes to arena and stadium level acts. But now when you have a monopoly like TM/LN able to openly scalp their own tickets through a secondary shell company and new schemes like "dynamic pricing" and crappy VIP packages designed to max the pricing on the best seats with artists openly accepting if not benefiting, it’s difficult to imagine how further corrupt the entire industry can get, but they keep hitting new lows.

it's disgusting, they don't feel they're rich enough already? Lars Ulrich is worth 1,4 billion kroner (that's a lot)

They just had to cancel the remainder of 2019 shows because James is back in rehab.

Yeah, I read the NZ and Aussie leg. Apparently he had been sober for 15 years and has had a rocky road for the last few.

First one is Blackened in the USSR :lol: Starts at 1.10 as it's the Blackened intro!
