why did you do that lady gaga thing at the grammys?

those extras were really rocking out

ps...nice job not turning on the mic
I hope that wasn't MYXYLPLYX's job, lol. I thought Gaga was decent - the production was embarrassing though.

Also they played Metallica's Master Of Puppets when Megadeth's Dave Mustaine went up for his award. I bet that went over well with him.

Now I wish I made more of an effort to catch the Palladium show tonight.
Nope, I only do local shows, and even then I work more with the band than with the techs.

I DID handle some gear that trucked down for the gig, but mostly rehearsal stuff and definitely no mic's!

The web feed had no audio issues... if anyone wants to hear it.
http://sixxsense.iheart.com/articles/ro ... -15558750/

I could hear my son say "d'OH! :essence: " all the way from across the country during the tv performance.
An audio guy's worst nightmare.

MYXYLPLYX glad it wasn't you.
The link says "a stagehand accidentally unplugged" it.
Do they have a road crew for these types of events? Or do they have to use union stagehands provided by the venue since it was a tv production? My brother traveled everywhere with the bands he has worked for,now retired after 28 years as a personal guitar tech, he even worked tv shows when the bands appeared (ie: David Letterman etc), so I was curious if they took anyone with them since you didn't go.

How old are you MYXYLPLYX ? Wondering now if I or my brother might know you from back in the day?
(Old Waldorf, Keystone Berkeley, The Stone, Ruthie's, Gilman, pre "world fame" gigs; or The Omni for Spastic Children incarnations... if not then we might have mutual old friends?

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.

I like the new tune. Solid, catchy and to the point. It has a very early 80's New Wave Of British Heavy Metal vibe to it. Lars is gonna have a heart attack playing this live. The Metallica forums are pretty funny, there's a huge contingent of posters who are mercilessly ragging on the band and the song.

I like the idea of doing 2 day stands in big markets although stadiums suck. If it was arenas, I'd make it a point to go. The real pisser is Ticketmaster rolling out like a dozen different pre-sales today and you don't know the ticket prices (which of course is astronomical if your want to be anywhere in the same zip code as the stage) until you sit through the Ticketmaster que and pick and purchase your selection.

The new song is not bad at all!

A friend if mine posted on FB that he got tickets for the Montreal shows in August. He paid $115 (CDN) per ticket which is good for both nights. Sounds pretty good to me. He likely got general admission at that price.

I'm bored of Metallica :lolol:

The single's OK, it's got some catch to it. It's just nothing really new from them and far too well produced.

They're playing two nights at Download with two different set lists. That's a bit shit I think. Would much rather have another band take up one of those slots.

I want to like Metallica…or feel like I should, but I’ve just never “got” them. I became familiar with them around 1987-88. Never listened to their albums (including the much revered first three or four). Am I really missing anything?

I found them too “macho” or alpha wannabe. And it’s ironic because I love Danzig. But unlike Metallica, I feel like his music appeals to more women than theirs; he definitely has a significant female faction in his audience.

Funny, I've been on a Metallica trip these last few weeks.

Not taking into acount what they've turned into .... those 4 first albums kick some serious ass.

I'm not the biggest fan, but sure enjoy those albums
