On Twitter recently former Metallica bassist Ron McGovney discussed how he is selling memorabilia from his second to last show with the group, which also featured Dave Mustaine and are the last photos of them performing together in Metallica, a sad and bittersweet moment. The memorabilia includes old photos and flyer copies that he has given permission to sign. The event took place on November 29th, 1982 in San Franciso California at the old Waldorf. James Hetfield made a huge announcement yesterday, confirming his plans for 2020.
11-29-82. My 2nd to last show with @Metallica at the Old Waldorf in San Francisco. @KirkHammett and Exodus opened the show. Don’t forget that we have old photos and flyer copies available. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org. I will sign them however you wish. Thanks , Ron McG.”
In other news regarding Metallica, fans have been rushing to social media to reflect upon the group’s debut album, Kill Em’ All. One reviewer had to say: “For those who may have been under a rock when this set was released (or perhaps just inundated with new music and endless reissues of old music, like I was) and have still not “jumped” into this pricey fire, hopefully, this review will be helpful and informative. I am usually not a fan of the proverbial “money grab” reissue process. Lifelong collectors usually find very little of interest from a product that is often rushed and not well thought out. Fortunately, no matter how you may feel about Metallica, they got this right.
James Hetfield ‘replacing’ a Metallica bassist was revealed earlier this week. The user continued: “First, the timing was right. Vinyl continues to grow in popularity as many of us old-school rockers grow weary of artless digital files and over-compressed CDs. And let’s face it, many of us have either worn out or sold our old records, or they just don’t sound good anymore with the modern phonographs. And who doesn’t want a new, high-quality recording of one of the most iconic albums in metal history? Second, the quality of both the content and the presentation is excellent. Finally, while clearly targeted to the dedicated Metallica fan, collectors will find much to enjoy as well, particularly the hardcover ear book, which in addition to the picture EP and live LPs, is really the chief selling point here as the remastered versions of the original CD and LP can be purchased separately.”
